The Sabbath-school affords to parents and children a precious opportunity for the study of God’s Word.

But in order to gain that benefit which they should gain in the Sabbath-school, both parents and children should devote time to the study of the lessons, seeking to obtain a thorough knowledge of the facts presented, and also of the spiritual truths which these facts are designed to teach.

Something Good to Eat


SMOOTHIES!  A tasty, nutritious and refreshing way to enjoy fruits, and even vegetables! Common combinations include any of the following: frozen bananas, berries, leaf spinach or kale (provides additional iron and calcium), pineapple or mango (for an added zing), almonds, (grind it first in the blender), raw cashews (rinse first, it provides a creamy texture to the smoothie), and coconut milk. For those who enjoy a smoothie for breakfast, add 2 Tbs of oats (it doesn’t change the flavor) to provide a full feeling longer. 


Banana ingredient alternatives that will not affect the taste but will provide a smooth and creamy texture: avocado, frozen cucumbers, raw cashews or raw almonds, frozen zucchini.
