Sabbath School 4 is the introduction of a new fresh user experience. This is also sets the foundation in which we will build more features to enrich your Bible study experience.
This is the official app of the Sabbath School Bible Study Guides.
Sabbath School 4 is a Bible study app for the student, teacher, and small group leader. The studies are built on Scripture and encourage the reader to discover a better understanding of the Bible. This app is produced by the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department of the General Conference. If you have questions or issues with this app, please contact the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department in the support link or at http://www.sabbathschoolpersonalministries.org/iphone. Feedback is what enables us to make this app relevant to you. (By the way, rating us for features we haven’t thought about yet doesn’t quite help the process.)
Beginner is a two year, monthly, curriculum for ages 0 to 2. Beginner lessons are intended for children under age two. Let's face it--these little ones don't sit still long enough! (Parents of a child who is more advanced may choose to use the Kindergarten study guide if the child is ready for more information.)
Kindergarten is a two year, weekly, curriculum for ages 3-5. There is one lesson per week with illustrative activities for each day.
Primary is a four year, weekly, curriculum for ages 6-10. There is one lesson per week with illustrative activities for each day.
Junior PowerPoints is a four year, daily, curriculum for ages 10-13.
Real Time Faith is a two year, daily, curriculum for ages 13-14.
Cornerstone Connections is a four year, daily, curriculum for teens.
Collegiate Quarterly (CQ) is a daily study based on a quarterly theme. A different young adult writes each day. The writers are from an international pool and bring a varied perspective on the week’s study.
The Adult Bible Study Guide (ABSG) and CQ are quarterly studies that explore the Bible and Biblical teaching. Where one author per quarter writes the Adult Bible Study Guide, about 91 international authors write CQ, one each per day, per quarter. Both follow the same curriculum for the given quarter.

Ratings and Reviews
Not what it used to be...
I used to use this app exclusively for my weekly lesson study. But things have changed that have caused me to go to the printed version instead. My three pet peeves with the app are:
1. Bible verses are no longer linked in the lesson.
2. Notes/answers written in the lesson are no longer saved.
3. The app used to save your place so in the morning you open the app and you are already at the lesson for that day.
They are little things, but they were enough to get me to switch. I do my lessons early in the morning and need all the help I can get! Now that I do the printed version there is no more finger flicking exercises in the morning, just go to the the folded over page and begin. No more switching apps to look up texts, Bible app ready and waiting. And my notes and answers don’t disappear from my notebook.
The app is handy for when I forget to get my new quarterly, as I did last Sabbath. And is okay for travel, I don’t need to bring the quarterly... still need my notebook though.
I would switch back to the app full time if it went back to the way it was, but until then, I am stuck adding to the tree death count.
One thing I wished the old app had and would love to see in a new version, links to the E.G.W. references. I know that is a lot more space, but if you could come up with a way to link up with the EGW app so you click the link and it opens their app to the referenced selection that would be great!
One Step Closer to a Working App
Like others have stated, for a couple of years this app would install, but when you tried to sync, it would never succeed, so you had the app on your phone but no lesson. I finally removed it as it was useless. I tried again last month and to my surprise, it will now sync and go to a page that allows you to select a week and upload the lesson. The problem is, when you want to move to the next lesson a week later, there is no way to go back to the menu that gives you the option to select your week. The only way I've found to accomplish this is to uninstall the app, then reinstall it. Has anyone at the development team tried to actually use the app? You're going in the right direction. Nice work so far but you're not finished.
This app is such a blessing to me and my kids
I use this for daily study of the adult lesson and stream the children's lessons for kindergarten and primary. For this age children (4-year-olds), the visual videos keep their interest.
I like that there is a variety of lessons to choose from for every age.
Sometimes a lesson will not load, or is unavailable. This upset me. Then as I read the reviews, I discovered that uninstalling and reinstalling will often fix that issue. Now I'm happy.
Thank you for this wonderful resource.
I especially like having so many reliable bible story videos to teach my children to love God's word. I'm glad to find that the children's lessons remain available for at least a year. Little kids like to see the same story over and over, helping to fix the lesson in their minds.
