Everyday tip for your Sunday school lesson or children’s ministry
# Object lesson on creation
Genesis 1: 1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
What words do children in your Sunday school, children's service, children's work or in the classroom associate with the concept of God?
The fourth word in the Bible is the word 'God'. When you read the Bible for the first time, you have no idea what this word means. We don't know anything about God here yet.
But fortunately we are thousands of years further and we are no longer at the beginning. All children in our Sunday school class also know something about God.
Take a stack of A4 papers and pens.
Write the word 'GOD' on an A4 paper. Put it on the floor in the middle of the room. Ask children to think of as many things about God as possible. Write each word or understanding on a new A4 paper and put it around the word 'GOD'.
How many things do we know about God?
