THE CONNECTION BETWEEN INDIVIDUALITY AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
INDIVIDUALITY IS A REFLECTION OF THE CHARACTER OF GOD.
We start the month with our Elementary students by looking closely at Genesis 1:26-28. When God created people, He did something special. He created them in His image and gave them the job of taking care of creation.
Bottom Line: God made me in His image. We hope to help kids understand that being made in the image of God means we can love, show kindness, be creative, solve problems, and care for others all because we reflect and respond to God’s character.
This month, we will begin laying the foundation with our Preschoolers for some important future conversations about taking care of our bodies. Before we ever talk with kids and teens about what to do and not do with their bodies, we need to start with who made their body and why that makes them so valuable.
And a great place to start is now, in the preschool years, with this simple but powerful truth—God made me.
Like the colorful building blocks in our MADE theme art, we want to build the idea that we are all wonderfully made by God in the minds of our preschoolers. The first block of the foundation we hope to build will be laid week one when we talk about how we are wonderfully made by God.
Story Focus: I am wonderfully made. God made each and every one of us and no two of us are the same. We are each unique and special in our own way.
