Memory Verse: “I am wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14, NIV
Story: Wonderfully Made • Psalm 139:13-15a; Jeremiah 1:5
This Week God made people and that makes us special.
Play Time: This is a great time of the year to go outside and take a good long look at all that God has made. Look at the different colors of leaves. Search for the perfect pumpkin or fill a basket with lots of yummy apples. Crunch some sticks and leaves with your feet. Make a pile of leaves with your hands. Encourage your little one to LOOK with the EYES God made for him, SMELL with his NOSE and TOUCH with his HANDS. Remind your child as you explore, that out of everything God made, He loves people the most!
Creativity: Using your imagination to do something unique.
Bible Story: Creation Story (Genesis 1:1-2:1)
Bottom Line: You were created, so you can be creative.
Memory Verse: “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10, NIV
MEAL TIME: Use these simple open ended discussion questions to lead your family.
Ask a Kid: What is one example of a time you saw somebody showing his or her creativity?
Ask a Parent: If God created the world, and He made people in His image, then what does that say about our ability to be creative?
