As I look very closely at this poster, I do not see anything. I don t see anything because it is completely blank. This poster does not have anything on it. It is just a black, empty poster. Today our Bible story is about a place that was completely dark. In fact, the Bible says that in the beginning, the earth was dark. There was not anything on it. But God changed that. God made light and day and seas and plants. It wasn t blank anymore. It wasn t dark anymore. God made the world.

(Hold up a handful of cotton balls.) These remind me of clouds. Where are clouds? (in the sky) Very good! You ve got the hang of this! Now, what about this water bottle? (Hold up water bottle.) Where can we find water? (Lead kids to answer in faucets, drinking fountains, lakes, rivers, seas, and so forth.) CONNECTION POINT LEADER (Show Connection Point Game slide.) Hi there, kids! Welcome to Connection Point. I need you to get your brains ready for today s game. Everyone, show me your two pointer fingers. Now rub them on the side of your head to warm up your brain. (Rub each forefinger on the temples of your head.) OK, now I think we re ready. For today s game I need six volunteers. (Choose six kids to come to the front. Introduce each child.) Now, I need six other people to help me with today s game. I m looking for kids whose brains are really warmed up. If I hand you a pillowcase, go to the front of the room and stand by one of the other kids. (Walk around and choose six kids. Hand each one a pillowcase. Introduce each child once they are all lined up.) OK, now that we are set, let me explain the game. Each of our first set of volunteers is going to feel the pillowcase and see if he can guess what the object is inside. When he makes a final guess, we will untie the yarn and pull the object out to see if he is correct. If you answer correctly, you will hear me say: Ding, ding, ding. Let s get started. (Invite each child to feel the pillowcase and guess the object. Ask the child to hold the object while the next child has a turn. Gather all of the objects at the end of the game and instruct the kids to return to their seats.) And finally, we have the flowers and the garden trowel. (Hold up the silk flowers and the garden trowel.) This garden trowel can be used to dig up land to help flowers and plants grow. All of these things remind me of something that God made.

BIBLE STUDY LEADER (Show Bible Story slide.) Hi there! I m so glad you are here today. In fact, I m so happy to see you that I made you something special. (Hold up play dough creation.) Can you tell what this is? (Allow kids to guess.) Yes! This is a flower. I tried to make the best flower I could out of this play dough. And there are a few more things I could create, such as a raindrop (shape into a raindrop), or a mountain (shape into a mountain). But if you asked me to make almost anything else, I probably can t do it. (Show Bible Story slide.) Today our Bible story is about God and all of the things He made. But, God did not use play dough. God used His voice and His words to make the world. God said the words, and the things were made. (Set down play dough creation.) Let s see what the Bible says about the creation. (Open Bible and read Genesis 1:1,3-5.) In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Then God said, Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light day, and He called the darkness night. God made these things on the first day. Then, on the second day, God made the sky. And on the third day, God made the sea, the dry land, plants, and trees. God made the trees and plants with seeds so that more trees and plants could grow.

What else did we hear that God made? (Encourage kids to name seas, sun, moon, and stars.) (Show Christ Focus slide.) After God finished His work, He told man to take care of the earth and all He had created. God cares about His creation! Many years later, Jesus reminded the people that God cares about the birds and the flowers. Jesus also reminded the people that God cares about us! God cares about us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to the earth for us. If we stopped right now and looked out a window what would we see that we talked about today? (Encourage kids to name the sky, earth, sun, plants, trees.) When you see something that God made, you can thank God for it. Let s pray now and thank God for the sky, the earth, the trees, the sun, and the entire world! Dear God, thank You for making the world. Thank You for the daytime and the nighttime. Thank You for the sky. Thank You for the seas, land, plants, and trees. Thank You for the sun, moon, and stars. Help us to take care of the world You made. We love You and thank You!

Earlier, I had six volunteers who helped discover what the hidden objects were in our pillowcases. Now, I need six new volunteers to help me understand what these objects represent. (Choose six kids to stand in the front. Introduce them to the group.) OK, reach into the pillowcase and pull out one of the objects. First, tell me what it is. And second, tell me what you think it might represent that God created. Yes! This is a flashlight. It reminds me that God made the night. He made nighttime. Let s say that word in our phrase.
