Nursery & Beginners

Welcome Young Families

Help your child find Jesus joyfully through 30 minutes of infant-appropriate learning and 30 minutes of parent discipling each week in Nursery Sabbath School. Toddlers, 18 to 35 months old, will look forward to an hour of engaging learning each week in Beginners Sabbath School, repeating the same Gracelink curriculum theme and Bible lesson for a month. One adult accompanies each baby and toddler. 

Summer Sabbath Schools are open! All are welcome, but space is limited and safety conditions apply. Weekly Sabbath School videos and monthly outdoor adventures continue through Summer.

How to Check In

As we value the safety of all, check in is required for all adults and children entering Sabbath School halls. Check in from your phone or church kiosk:
  • Text CHECK to 269-281-2345, from 9 am on Sabbaths. Click in the box for each family member wishing to attend. Click submit ONCE, then pick up tags as you enter the lower level Welcome Center. When room capacity is reached, check in closes, so you know whether to head to church or plan family Bible and nature study. 
  • Or search for your family at a kiosk as you arrive through the lower level Welcome Center. Click in each family member attending, submit ONCE, and wait for tags to print. Be prepared to create an alternate activity for your kids if capacity is reached before you arrive. 

How to Volunteer

Sabbath Schools bring families together to disciple kids and parents alike. When parents volunteer 1/4 of Sabbaths each year, parents and children benefit. It takes a village to raise spiritual champions; at Pioneer our children are blessed with diverse models of Christ-followers taking turns and discipling each other. Parents, Andrews University or Academy students, grandparents and other growing Christians who are willing to complete North American Division required training and a background check, are invited to join a dynamic team.
