Memory Verse Text: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Attention Getter: Guess what I made this week? (For example... cookies, bird feeder, model, etc.)

Activity #1

Meal, cookies to share, etc.  Make something together as a group or have individual students bring in something they have made.  Put the items on display or present briefly them in front of whole sunday school or another class. The point is that everything made has a designer and maker to fulfill a purpose.

Activity #2

What happened to our world? Creation was perfect, but something came in and ruined it all. See the Power Point

Activity #4

Although the story of Creation is a standard subject in Sunday school classes it is difficult to remember for students to remember what God created on each day. The following drawings will help show that in the first three days, God created space, water and land. In the second three days, God filled them.
