This week we begin our themed lesson series on the 7 days of creation. We start with an overview. The children will learn that in the beginning the earth was formless and empty! Everything was darkness, but the Spirit of God was there!
Also in this introductory lesson, we will learn that God is the author of our 7 day weekly calendar. That because it took him 6 days of work and 1 day of rest to complete the creation of the earth, we have Monday-Sunday! We will also introduce God’s creation for each day and begin working on our mini creation books. We will learn some pretty cool songs with the creation lesson including:
- Deep and Wide
- My God is so Big
- He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands
- Who is the King of the Jungle
“Who is the King of the Jungle” is one of my personal favorites. There is a pretty cool music video to go along with the song on youtube. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJwUvjVq9k4. Watch it with your child and see if they can recall the motions we do to the song for you!
Our scripture for this lesson series is the very first verse in the very first book of the Bible – Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
This is a great lesson series that is loads of fun! Join us anytime:)
