Scripture Songs

Singing Bible verses is arguably the best way to commit them to memory. Years later, at crucial times, these texts will surface in the memory. Help your kids to hide God’s Word in their hearts. The best recordings will have easily understood words combined with a memorable tune.

Felt Illustrations

While computer animations and PowerPoint presentations are popular, there’s still much to be said for old-fashioned “felt sets.” The advantage of felt sets is that they engage young learners without the hyper stimulation of TV. Both teacher and children can be directly engaged in the stories, thus providing a clear focus for the class and holding the children’s attention. Additionally, the felt experience is different from what they usually experience and thus has a special attraction, if the teacher uses the felts correctly. (Be sure to read the instructions in the accompanying book!)

  • The Classic Betty Lukens Felt sets (the ones you’re used to seeing many years ago, but improved) include backgrounds and overlays, figures for Bible stories, as well as science stories and other stories.
  • Little Folks Visuals offers miscellaneous felt sets and backgrounds, including a tabernacle set.
  • Storytime Felts offer a wide variety of felt sets, including Bible stories. These felt figure are in a very different style from the Betty Lukens series.  You might not want to mix them for the same purpose. But they can be used on bulletin boars and other areas, as well as stories. 

NOTE: Because different publishers use different artists, styles vary quite a bit, and it is best to choose Bible sets from just one publisher to ensure that the figures are appropriately sized and look like they belong together. Examine the styles and choose one that you like.

Beginner to Primary Sabbath School Lessons

Gracelinks Curriculum

This is the current standard curriculum for Seventh-day Adventist churches.

My Bible First Curriculum

This is a curriculum for leaders and teachers who prefer more structured lessons than the Gracelinks curriculum provides. Materials and stories contain true-to-life graphics instead of cartoon graphics. Resources include theme materials and visualized songs, teaching helps and memory verse aids. My Bible First was started to help parents establish daily family worships. Children can understand the plan of salvation and the great controversy theme. All Bible lessons tell the Bible stories in the order they happened. Each week’s lesson builds on what was learned the previous week to help children to understand how God has been working in history, and the consequences of choices. 

  • Primary Lesson Resources 3-year cycle for ages 7-9. My Bible First is designed to assist the early reader to begin a personal devotion time. The three-year cycle enlarges and expands the great controversy and plan of salvation theme introduced in the kindergarten lessons. Both one-time orders and standing orders accepted.
  • Primary Teaching Helps Detailed program outline and instructions for entire Sabbath school class time (75+ minutes) with complete materials list. Includes text of weekly lesson, reproducible activity sheets, large Nature Corner booklet, coordinated with My Bible Pictures.
  • Primary Activity Sheets Individually printed activity sheets (not needed if you have Teaching Helps and a way to photocopy the activity sheets).
  • Primary Memory Verse Cards
  • Visualized Songs include MIDI files for each song.
  • Scripture Songs include illustrated Scripture books and audio CD`s of children saying and singing the passage.

  5. Good day servants of God

    I would like you to sent me some evangelism books and others books for children.

    am seventh Adventist church member.
    may God bless as all

    • We are an online ministry and do not send out anything material. We send email and post messages on this website. We suggest you check with your local Seventh-day Adventist Conference for the availability of physical books.

    • It depends on the age of the kids, but in the days when I was involved with kids in the 10-12 age bracket, we often enlisted the help of the kids in making activities for other children. Some of the ones that I remember most clearly were quizzes, and miming. Seeing I was a science teacher back in those days I used to run a science segment which would either provide an interesting lesson, or help the kids to understand something really important. That used to be very popular - particularly when I produced explosions! Then once a year the kids would take all the preliminaries for the church service. That would take quite a bit of preparation getting them ready to lead out in the songs and practising special items, but it had an element of service about it so it was an important part of their training.

      I think that with children, we need to think outside the box a bit. They are typically in school for 5 days a week and giving them another hour of school is really just more of the same. I like to think that Sabbath is really special and something to look forward to.

  6. Sabbath School Net is run by a group of lay folk, primarily as a resource for the adult lesson study, although we do provide links to materials for other divisions of the Sabbath School as well. We do not provide these materials ourselves so any queries about their services should be directed to the church entity that provides them.

    In your case I think that you are referring to the Gracelink material and I suggest that you try their website at:

    If you cannot find what you are looking for here, they do provide a contact link at the top right-hand side of their page.

  7. Please make these resources downloadable. I've been asked to download beginner lessons but I can't and the next option is buying which I cannot afford.

    • Sabbath School Net is not responsible for these resources. We provide links to them only as a service. If you have issues with the websites referenced here, the best approach is to contact the owners of the appropriate website. Most of them provide their own contact details.

    • Sabbath School Net provides links to the children's ministries resources; We do not email materials. If you look at the top of this page you will see the Gracelink links. Click on the appropriate link and follow the instructions to download the materials. If you have issues with downloading these materials you should contact Gracelink on their Website:

  8. Hello there,
    I want to help teachers from my local church get their lessons, therefore if I can be emailed the beginners lesson,


    • Hi Dorish;

      Sabbath School Net is an independent ministry run by volunteers. Our focus is on the adult lesson and we only provide links to resources for the other age groups. We suggest that you follow the links on this page and contact the producers of the other lessons directly to see what they provide.

  9. Please can you help me & send for me the children lessons Grace Link all quarterly i have failed to download

    Daniel Okello from Northern Uganda Feild
    Happy Sabbath

  10. Hi there. Thank you for SSNet and all the wonderful work that you do. When I came to God, this was my favourite resource for Bible study!

    I would like to know however, what resource could be recommended in the efforts of trying to teach non-SDA children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Primary ages about God and his love? Where do I start?

  11. The Eric B Hare stories on CD are available for MUCH less at the than the Amazon price of 39.99$.
