PARENT BIBLE STUDY
Read: Genesis 1 and Colossians 1:15-17
In the beginning, God created the universe and everything in it. It wasn’t always here. It didn’t spontaneously come into being on its own. God ordered all of creation and set everything in place according to his grand design and purpose.
In Colossians, we learn that Jesus is the firstborn over all creation. That doesn’t mean he was the firstborn of creation. Jesus was in existence with God the Father and the Holy Spirit from eternity. Jesus was there at creation and was himself the agent of creation. All things were made by him, through him and for him.
Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” The universe itself declares the glory of God. Creation reveals God’s infinite goodness, wisdom and creativity.
When we contemplate the design and the order of the world around us—the beauty and magnificence of the mountains, the brilliance of color in a sunrise or sunset, the power and intensity of the ocean, the expanse of the starry night sky—we cannot help but praise our awesome Creator God!
What about creation inspires you to worship God?
What do you think it means that all things were made for God (Colossians1:15-17)?
“God made everything,” Acts 17:24.
THE BIG PICTURE
Our preschool curriculum written for 3-5 year olds. Through exciting videos, or live teaching in the rooms, kids explore stories from the Bible each month. Beginning with Creation, and moving in chronological order throughout the year, kids learn that God is a powerful, loving, and trustworthy friend who cares about us. They learn that God sent Jesus to save the world. In a large group format, preschoolers sing and dance to worship songs, then meet fun characters and play games that introduce them to the concept of the series. After the story, kids play a Big Group Game, then transition to small group activities, designed to be led by an adult. We hope preschoolers learn through fun, and begin to understand who God is and how much he loves them.
