Helping our children and young people to follow Jesus includes...
April 2017 // First Steps Together: Session 1 - Creation
Meeting aim: To begin to understand that God made us and loves us.
Bible passage: Genesis 1:1-2:4
Background: The story of creation is a popular one with younger children. There are lots of opportunities for craft and construction. However, it can be easy to be swept along in a whirl of glue and tissue paper and miss the chance to help children start to think about God and how much he loves them. Given the age of the children we’re working with, they will struggle to process deeper concepts of who God is, but they can become familiar with the idea that God made the whole world, and that he made them and loves them.
