Creation Curriculum

Creation Curriculum

This series entitled “Creation” is a 7-week study where kids will learn about a day of the creation story each week. Kids will learn about their creative Creator and how God created each of us with a unique purpose. This series shows how the creation story in Genesis connects with the rest of the Bible and what that means for our lives. The weekly curriculum content for this series includes a theme verse, two game options, a takeaway statement, a message/object lesson, a character skit, small group discussion questions, review questions, and a family take-home card. A bumper video and graphic slides for the theme, games, takeaways, and review questions are provided as well.

Creation Verse SongWe love using Jumpstart3 music to teach our kids the theme verses for our series. We used Exodus 20:11 for the Creation Series. You will have to purchase this song to use in your ministry, but it is worth it. Jumpstart3 offers options for hand motions and lyric videos for all their songs as well.

The download below includes everything you need to get started with the Creation Series in your kid's ministry. Stay tuned for an 8-week Disciples Series coming soon. In the Disciples Series, kids will learn about different disciples of Jesus each week and how to become better followers of Jesus. Kids will watch movie clips from Despicable Me movies each week, and learn from the minions about how to be faithful followers.
