Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of April 25, 2016
Theme: We Live in God’s Creation
God Created Our World
Scripture: “So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so.” (Genesis 1:7).
Play: Describe a number of living things that God has created, and ask your child to tell you whether they belong in the sky, water or land.
Talk: The sky, water and land are full of living things, but this was not always so. Before the earth was ready to support life, God had a lot of preparation to do. This included separating the sky, water and land and placing them in exactly in the right spots (Genesis 1:6-10). God wants us to enjoy and respect the beautiful world He has created. What are some ways that we can care for the earth?
Pray: Thank God for creating the sky, water and land.
