How to find your way around the front page:

You may choose a version that uses Biblia.com for Bible references or BibleGateway.com for Bible references. (Clicking on the lesson cover will tell you a little more).
  • At the top of the vertical menu, below the Lesson Quarterly cover in the left sidebar, you may choose to study from a page which lists the Daily Lesson portions in blog format, with opportunity to interact with Sabbath School students around the world. Below that, you will find links to our most popular pages.

How do I find another lessons in the quarter?

This will bring up a contents page for the quarter with the introduction showing first. Below it is a table that lists the title to each week’s lesson with links to each lesson and the Text References that go with them.

How do I get my picture to show up with my name?

We’re glad you asked. Your picture is so much more personal than those default geometric designs. :) To get your own picture to show up, you need to register your email address with Gravatar.com with your preferred picture. It may be a photo of yourself, or it may be another picture that you would like to use to represent you. Since Gravatar.com is owned by WordPress.com you need to register with WordPress first.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Pick out an image you want to use as your “avatar” or picture in connection with your email address. (Note where it is on your computer.)
  2. Go to WordPress.com and set up an account, if you don’t have one. You don’t have to do a thing with it. Just set it up with your email address.
  3. Then go to Gravatar.com and log in with your WordPress login. Then follow instructions to register your email address and upload on image of your choice.

OR follow these instructions at Gravatar.com

How can I have the lessons sent to me by email?

Under “Discuss” in the horizontal menu, click on “Posts by Email.” Then choose one of the options on the page and follow instructions.

How can I unsubscribe from automatic email?

Scroll down to the bottom of your email and click on the Unsubscribe link. Please do not ask us to unsubscribe you, unless you have already followed the instructions at the bottom of the email.

Do you have lessons for children?

We do not have lessons for children on our site, but you can see links to lessons and other helps by clicking on “Teens & Kids” on the TOP Menu or in the LEFT SIDEBAR.

How can I get a printed study guide?

Probably your best bet would be to go to your local Seventh-day Adventist Church. If there is none in your area, contact your local conference office or mission. After that you could try the Adventist Book Center (http://www.adventistbookcenter.com/).

Do you have helps for Sabbath School teachers?

Yes. Two major helps that are published weekly on the home page: Michael Fracker’s teaching plan and Joyce Griffith’s Thought Starters. You may go directly to these and other Teacher resources by clicking on “Teacher” in the LEFT SIDEBAR  or on the MENU under “Study Guides.” Also check out the pages under “Resources” in our top menu, such as our Bible Study Center.

Do you have resources beyond the lessons?

  • There are a lot of additional resources available though links on our website. Check out our Teacher Page and the the pages under “Resources” on the TOP MENU.
  • The “Theology” section at the bottom of the RIGHT SIDEBAR lists links to informative websites on theological issues.

I have a suggestion or a complaint. How do I send it to SSNet?

On the menu under “About” click on “Contact” and enter the information on the form. We welcome constructive criticism and suggestions. (If you complain about the website in a comment, chances are it will be either edited out of the comment or the comment deleted altogether.)

  1. How do I get the full version of the lesson? What I mean is an edition with all bible readings on same page (Quoted verses expanded)?

    Thanks,
    Anstead.

    • Dear Anstead,
      No such "full version" of the lesson exists. The Sabbath School lessons are designed to help you study and understand the Bible.
      If you do not have a Bible, you can obtain one in most places of the world. If you find yourself without your Bible at some time, you can use our website with links to the Bible texts.
