Sabbath School

Sabbath school classes are the heartbeat of our church community. Each week, we spend time learning from Scripture and each other. Seasoned members of our church lead the adult Sabbath School class. Each teacher uses a lesson study guide to help students understand the lesson's information and help focus discussion that will apply important biblical truths from the lesson to our lives.


The adult Sabbath School lessons are prepared by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, usually by one of the scholars or theologians of the church. These lessons are published in the Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide, published quarterly, and provided free to each student.

Worship Service

During our worship service, people are challenged and uplifted in one of three identical worship services. They enjoy music, bible study, and inspiring messages from Scripture. People from all religious backgrounds, including those who have never attended church, find authentic and meaningful worship and relevant teaching to help them thrive during the week.

Gurnee SDA Church is not high pressure but communicates “next steps” so you’ll know what to do when ready. We think when you visit, you’ll quickly become a regular attender.

In worship, the congregation engages in a participatory dialogue with God as we listen and respond through Scripture, sermons, prayer, and music.

Worship at Gurnee SDA Church is relaxed but not informal, relevant but not trendy. Sermons relate Scripture’s old story to the challenges and delights of the present. Music plays a large part in our worship, with congregational hymn singing and music performed in various forms, ranging from vocal solos and instrumentals to handbells and children’s choirs.


As a part of our worship, we greet and extend peace to each other and offer prayers of confession, intercession, and praise.

Prayer Meeting

We also have a prayer and bible study group that meets every Wednesday from 7-8 pm. Anyone is welcome to participate in this mid-week spiritual boost. If you can't make it? Don't worry. Hit the "pray for me" button on the homepage and send in your prayer request. Our Prayer team will intercede for you.


"Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are, but in order to enable us to receive Him. Prayer does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him." -Ellen White
