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.

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is creator

Creation. Genesis 1—2v3. God created all things by speaking them into existence. All of creation served God and worshipped Him.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • The book of Genesis, which means “origin”, explains how God created      everything in the universe and the world.

  • God ordered, formed, and spoke everything into existence.

  • God gave the first humans beings full responsibility over the earth and animals.

 

Connect as a family

Grab a flashlight and read this part of The Big God Story outside at night. Before reading, take a few moments to look at the heavens. Talk about the differences between day and night, and light and dark. Then read Genesis 1—2v3.

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • If it were possible for you to have been there on one of the days of creation, which day would you choose and why?

  • Parents, be sure to share too!

  • Pray together, thanking God that He created us and made our world. Ask Him to show you ways to take care of the world He created.

These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God is creator 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), God is the Creator and has made you with lots of love and joy. May you grow to know His love more and more. As you do, may you share His love and care with others.
