The Parent Weekly

We believe parents are the primary teachers in a child's life. Because of this, we post a Parent Weekly each Sunday which includes big ideas from that week’s teaching, the memory verse, questions for family discussion, and a look at where we’re headed the following week. Our hope is for this to be a helpful tool as you continue raising your kids to love God and love people.

Welcome, you'll find the most recent lessons below:

 

 

Year 1, Fall: Lesson 2

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God created me

Adam and Eve. Genesis 1v26–31; 2v4–25. God created Adam and Eve to be in perfect relationship with Him.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is redeemer

The Fall and Restoration: Genesis 2—3. Adam and Eve chose to sin by disobeying God and eating forbidden fruit. Though mankind’s relationship with God was severed, we have the promise of redemption and restoration through Jesus Christ.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • God told Adam and Eve they were free to eat the fruit from any tree in the garden except one— the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. 

  • The serpent convinced Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. Adam then followed by eating of the fruit when she offered it to him. 

  • Though Adam and Eve’s sin separated them from a relationship with God, He established the plan for salvation and redemption.

 

Connect as a family

Find a garden setting. Sit under a tree or go to a nearby park. Read Genesis 3v1–13. After you’ve read, ask your children if they understand what sin is. Explain that anytime we choose to disobey God, we’re sinning. Adam and Eve disobeyed God when they ate the fruit He told them not to eat. God doesn’t want us to ever try to hide our sins from Him like Adam and Eve tried to do. He wants us to talk to Him about our sins and ask for forgiveness. He wants to forgive us

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • What did the serpent tell Eve? 

  • What did Adam and Eve do after they ate the fruit? 

  • What happened when Adam and Eve chose to disobey God?

These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God is redeemer into your everyday life as a family.

 

Blessing

 

 

Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.

A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you know that God knows everything about you, and He always loves you. May you know God as your Redeemer.
