Battle Creek, Michigan, has many connections with the early history of the SDA Church. The tall building that once housed Dr. John Harvey Kellogg’s sanitarium is still the city’s most prominent landmark. We will join the morning worship service at the tabernacle, followed by a picnic lunch. The afternoon tour of historic sites will include the newly opened Advent Pioneer Village, the Kellogg Discovery Center, and Oak Hill Cemetery where Ellen White and many other church leaders are buried.
