PARENT BIBLE STUDY
Read: Genesis 1:6-11
Every day we’re surrounded by simple, yet profound reminders of God’s creation both visible and invisible. We see the glory of a sunrise; a roaring river; a snow-capped mountain, and we can easily think of the splendor of creation, and the majesty of our Creator.
But we can also know the glory of God through his unseen creation. Colossians 1:16 says, “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”
God created invisible things like gravity, and the very air we breathe. And while that is impressive, the idea of God making invisible things like the human soul and emotions seems even more profound. Acts 17:25 says, “He himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.”
Thinking about how personal God is in creating the most intimate parts of us, is different than thinking of him creating the sun. When we realize that our Creator God is not only capable of forming continents with his words, but of forming our hearts to open to his whispers, it changes who we understand God to be. He is magnificent, yet also intimately close; creating and sustaining all things, visible, invisible, massive, and minute.
When was a time the visible creation reminded you of the majesty of our Creator?
Have you ever been reminded of God’s majesty through invisible things like the human soul or emotion?
How does recognizing God’s visible and invisible creation help you know him better?
“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.
