4 Unit 1: In the Beginning Unit Description: God s story begins with the creation of all things. God did not have to create but chose to. Even more incredible, He made people for the purpose of glorifying Him. Man was created different from all other forms of life on the earth and as such was created in the image of God. God intends for people to be in fellowship with Him; however, people are affected by sin and need redemption. Unit Key Passage: Genesis 1:27 Unit Christ Connection: God knew we would sin, and Jesus, our Creator, came to redeem us and protect us from the wrath of God by suffering for us.

5 Teacher BIBLE STUDY All of creation began with a word. God said it, and it happened. This method of creation is referred to as ex nihilo or from nothing. God the Father wasn t the only One involved in creation, though. Check out Colossians 1:16-17 and John 1:1-3. Jesus was not only present at creation, He was involved. Jesus was God s agent of creation. All things were created by Him and through Him. The Bible also tells us that all things were created for Jesus. Have you ever wondered why butterflies exist or why the setting sun fills the sky with such vivid colors? For Jesus! God s creation was perfect, totally unaffected by sin. His plan was to fill the earth with all the things He saw were good: large sea-creatures, winged birds, crawling animals, livestock, and wildlife. God s ultimate act of creation was creating people. God created people different from everything else He created. Not only do people have a special purpose to glorify God (Isaiah 43:7) but we were also made to know and love God. God blessed Adam and Eve and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply. Creation is the beginning of God s gospel story, the story that reveals how a great God redeemed a fallen people by sending His Son, Jesus, to be the perfect sacrifice. Every story in the Bible is a snapshot of a bigger story, a story that begins at creation. Pray for the boys and girls you teach as you prepare to share the gospel story with them. Help kids understand that they were created for a special purpose and that God desires for them to know and love Him. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak through you as you share with kids the story of God s plan to send Jesus to earth to offer salvation to sinners. This story changes everything. 4 Preschool Worship Guide Unit 1 Session 1

7 The BIBLE STORY God Created the World and People Genesis 1 2 In the beginning, there was nothing but God. There was no sun, no dirt, no creeks, no animals, and no people. God began to do something that no person could ever do. God began to make the world out of nothing! First, God made the heavens and the earth. The earth was covered with water, and it was dark. God said, Let there be light! And there was light. God saw that the light was good. God called the light day, and He called the darkness night. That was the first day ever Day 1. On Day 2, God made the sky. On Day 3, God gathered the water on earth into oceans. Now there was dry land. God saw that it was good, and He kept on working. He made all kinds of plants and trees. Every plant and tree had seed from which would grow more of the same kind of plant or tree. And God saw that it was good. Everything God makes is good. On Day 4, God made lights in the sky for day and night. He made the sun for daytime, and the moon and stars for night. Later, people would watch these lights to see when to plant crops and when to celebrate special holidays. God looked at what He had made, and God saw that it was good. On Day 5, God made animals that live in the water and fly in the sky. He made fish and whales and sea horses and octopuses that move in the water. He made birds that fly in the sky. He made each kind of animal different, and God saw that it was good. So God blessed the animals and told them to have baby fish and baby birds so there would be more of them on earth. On Day 6, God made animals that live on earth, all different kinds. He made wild animals, like lions and giraffes and foxes. He made animals that crawl on the ground, like alligators and caterpillars. He made animals that help people, like cows and camels and sheep. And God saw that it was good. But God was not through yet. The last thing God created was the most special of all. He made people. The people would take care of the earth God had made. They would take care of the plants and animals too. God saw all that He had made, and it was VERY good! 6 Preschool Worship Guide Unit 1 Session 1
8 The first man s name was Adam. God gave Adam a job. He would take care of the garden, and he would give names to all the animals. Adam looked at each kind of bird and animal, both wild and tame, and he gave each kind the right name dog, giraffe, pelican, aardvark on and on until every animal had a name. But there was no other creature like Adam. So God made Adam sleep, and He took a rib from Adam. God used Adam s rib to make a woman. God brought the woman to Adam. Adam named her Eve. Adam was very happy! God loved them very much. On Day 7, God rested. He had done everything He planned to do. He said this day would be holy a special day to rest, celebrate, and enjoy what He had made. Christ Connection: Colossians 1:15-22 reveals that Christ is ruler over all of God s creation. All of creation was created through Him, by Him, and for Him. Everything was created to give glory to Christ, but people would choose not to give Him glory. The rest of the Bible reveals how Jesus would restore the relationship between God and man. In the Beginning 7

Say This month, we will learn a verse from the Bible. You can read it right here in Genesis, the first book in the Bible. [Hold up the Bible; point to the verse. Read the verse on the key passage poster in the translation you choose.] When the Bible says man, it sometimes means men and women or people. Male and female also means men and women. God created man in His own image. People cannot do everything God can do, but people can think, love, decide things, and know what is right and wrong. People Preschool Worship Guide Unit 1 Session 1

Tell the Bible story and ask them to make the sign when they hear the word good in the story, or show the Bible story video God Created the World and People. Say Who made everything?

Talk about a missions activity If your preschool and children s ministry is planning a large-scale missions activity, introduce the activity and talk about the reasons for it. If you do not have a missions activity planned for now, talk about inviting friends to church. 12 Preschool Worship Guide Unit 1 Session 1
14 I Can Say Hello various items representing things God made man-made items towel Tip: Follow church security rules when parents pick up their kids. Tell teachers arriving for a following session what they need to know about kids who are present. Say God made everything, including people. But some people don t know God made them, or that He loves them! We know God loves people because He said so in the Bible, and God always tells the truth. Who can you invite to church to hear the wonderful news? (family, friends at school, neighbors) Sing I Can Say Hello and comment that being friendly to guests at church will help them want to return and learn more about God. Play a game Place a selection of items on the floor (toy car, plastic food, toy animal, doll clothing, and so on) representing things God made and things people made. Cover them with a towel. Remove one item secretly along with the towel. Children guess which item is missing. Determine whether it represents something God made or not. Repeat. If a child says that God made everything, and a car is something, you might point out that God made the materials and gave man the creative brain to make the car. Distribute The Big Picture Cards Each quarter the Preschool Activity Pack includes a set of The Big Picture Cards for Families: Preschool to help families reinforce the biblical content each week. Be sure each family receives a set of cards when parents pick up their kids. In the Beginning 13
