And now for this week's lesson... 

God Created People!

This upcoming Sunday your child will learn about:  God Created People!
Story Point:  Bible scholars have long debated what is meant by this word, but here are two of the most common explanations. The first is that this word is affirming the doctrine known as the Trinity—that God is one in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Our in this verse is drawing from that important aspect of who God is. This would make sense here because a common, but wrong, belief of why God created people was because He was lonely. But God as three Persons in one is never alone. He has always enjoyed a perfect relationship of love within who He is. It would make sense that God wants to make that clear here.
Family Bible Reading: Psalms 19:1
Big Picture Question:  Why did God create everything?
Big Picture Answer:  God created everything for His glory!

Gospel Gems to Discuss at Home

Gospel Tots (ages 1-3)
  • We can know and love God.
Gospel Tykes & Kids (ages 4-8)
  • People are special because God made us to know and love Him. Through Jesus, we can know and love God.
  •  Jesus is Lord over everything. The Bible says everything was created by Him and for Him. Jesus holds everything together and everything brings God glory.
Gospel Students (ages 9-11)
  • God created people in His own image and provides for everything He made. People are special because God made people to live forever in a relationship with Him. Through His Son, Jesus, we can have eternal life with God just as He planned.
