Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For September 25th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-God Made People (Adam & Eve)
On the sixth day God made people. God did not use His words to make a man; He used his breath to give him life. God named this man Adam. The Lord saw that it was not good for man to be alone. So while Adam slept, God took one of Adam’s rib bones and made Eve. She was Adam’s helper. They lived in a beautiful garden where they would walk and talk with God. God made them to love Him and each other.
Blessing: Children, may you remember that God made each of us and He loves us so much.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade) and Illuminate Spiritual Formation
The Big God Story this Sunday – God is Provider (Abraham and Isaac)
Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his only son, the son whom he loved, gives us a picture of another part of The Big God Story that would happen many, many years later. God would send His only Son Jesus, the Son whom He loved, to earth to die on a cross as a sacrifice for our sin—maybe on the very same spot where Abraham and Isaac sacrificed the ram. God provided Jesus as our perfect Lamb. He fulfills God’s covenant promise. He saves us from our sin and allows us to be in perfect relationship with God forever.
Blessing: (Child’s name), our God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). May you know that God is your Provider. May you trust in His provision and follow Him wherever He leads you.
