The Gospel Project – Week 1
We are so excited your child was 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 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 to use the cards you were given to review the Big Picture Question and Answer with your kids. These cards are one of my favorite things about The Gospel Project. They will help make remembering their lessons easy, and it will provide the building blocks they need for fully understanding the Bible in its proper context. Also, you should have received a family journal page. The family journal page is just another way to reinforce the lesson.
Finally, I am extremely excited that the kids loved it. I heard several of the kids say they had lots of fun, wanted to stay all the way through big church, and that they can’t wait to come back next week. Invite a friend this week to be a part of The Gospel Project.
