The Parent Weekly


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.

Year 2, Fall: Lesson 2


What we learned today

Big Idea: God made our world

Genesis 1v1—2v3 In six days, God created our world. Everything from the heavens and earth to the animals and people who inhabit it—the Lord created them all. On the seventh day He rested. God has entrusted His creation to our care. 


Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God made people (part 1)

Genesis 1v26–31; 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.


Dig into God’s word

  • Read Genesis 2v7; 2v18–23. Remind your children that God made them and loves them.


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.

  • Who made you?

  • God made you!



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.”
