God Created the World and People

Dear UCC Parents,

We are so excited so many children were able to join us this week for the kickoff of The Gospel Project for Kids! This week began a three-year chronological study of Scripture. Each week’s study will build upon the previous week, and we can’t wait to help boys and girls to discover the big picture of God’s story.

God’s story begins with creation. This week we learned what God made during the six days of creation—from light and stars to birds and people! Everything God made is good. Have you ever wondered why butterflies exist or why the sky explodes with vivid color when the sun sets? The Bible says that all things were created for Jesus (Colossians 1:16-17).

We also found out that God didn’t just create people for no reason. He created people with a purpose: to know, love and glorify Him. Colossians 1:15-22 reveals that Christ is ruler over all of God’s creation. All of creation was created by Him, through Him, and for Him. It’s all about Jesus! Everything was created to give glory to God, but people would choose not to give Him glory. The rest of the Bible reveals how Jesus would restore the relationship between God and man.

REMEMBER: You have resources available to continue the conversation about these wonderful truths with your kids; The family journal page your child received after class and the App (The Gospel Project for Kids-Family App) available for iOS and Android. Feel free to comment here as you make the journey as a family.

Have a blessed week!
