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 3

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God made people Part 1

Genesis 1-26–31; 2v4–25 On the sixth day, God gave the first man the breath of life. God named him Adam. The Lord saw that it was not good for man to be alone, so He created Eve. Adam and Eve lived in a beautiful garden where they walked and talked with God.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God made people Part 2

Genesis 1-26–31; 2v4–25 On the sixth day, God gave the first man the breath of life. God named him Adam. The Lord saw that it was not good for man to be alone, so He created Eve. Adam and Eve lived in a beautiful garden where they walked and talked with God.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • God created man and woman in His own image.

  • When Adam and Eve were created, they walked and talked with God in perfect relationship.

 

Connect as a family

Your child may enjoy gazing at his own reflection. As he does so, remind him that God made him and all of the people in the world. Read Genesis 2v7; 2v18–23. Remind your children that God made them and loves them.

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • Who made you? God made you!

  • What would you say to God if you could walk with and talk to Him like Adam and Eve did?

These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God made people 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.

Open a Bible and read Psalm 139v14a

“I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made.”

A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you always remember that you are special, made by God too.
