The Truth About You…Creation

Day 6 – God created man

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old is gone, the new is here!

2 Corinthians 5:17

So, this week we continue with our study of Day 6. God creates human kind.


Do you remember what God used to create human kind? Genesis 2:7

God said “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” What does that mean? What are the things/traits that God gave us that make us different than God’s other creations?

One of the things we have is the ability to make choices. We have the freedom to choose. We have the freedom to choose whether or not we want to follow or obey the rules. Do you choose to obey the rules? All the time? What did Adam and Eve choose?

When Adam and Eve chose to break the rule it separated them God, this made them very sad, it also made God very sad. But, God had a plan. Do you remember the Secret Rescue Plan?

God’s Secret Rescue Plan was to create another man, a different kind of man, this man would not be created from the earth. Read 1 Corinthians 15:47 Where was this man from? Read Philippians 2:5-11 What was His name? What did He do? Read Hebrews 2:14-15

Jesus died on the cross so that you and I could be connected to God again and the connection lasts forever. Read John 3:16 We call this the gift of Salvation. Have you been given the gift of salvation? Yes you have. We all have. It’s a gift. It is not something that we can earn or need to earn. The better question is, have you accepted God’s gift? Read Romans 10:9 and John 11:25

The Bible tells us that once we accept God’s gift of salvation we are made new. Re-read the verse at the top of this page. You can also read 1 Corinthians 15:42-45

The Truth About You…Creation

Day 6 – God created land animals

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Zechariah 9:9

We have made it to the sixth day of creation. A lot happens on this day, so this week we are focusing on how God created animals to live on the land. This includes creating the donkey. What is your favourite land animal? Why?

On Sunday we heard the story of Palm Sunday, the day where Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Watch this video to review the story. Or read it in Matthew 21:1-11.

Now, is it really possible, that on the sixth day, God already knew he would send His son Jesus to save us? Did he really know that Jesus would ride into Jerusalem on a donkey?

Read Genesis 49:10-11 and Zechariah 9:9.

Who did Jesus send to get the donkeys?

How did the people greet Jesus when he arrived in Jerusalem?

What does Hosanna mean? (save us)

This story reminds us that God sent Jesus to save us. Read John 3:17

This week’s challenge

When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, the people lay coats and branches on the ground to show respect and honour, to worship Jesus. This week, what will you do to worship Jesus?

The Truth About You…Creation

Creatures of the Sea & Air

“Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.”

Colossians 3:2 (the message)


What a fantastic time we had at the KV service! It was such a joy to share what we do every week in Kidventure with everyone last Sunday. Many thanks to all the kids and leaders who made it happen.


On Sunday we spoke about Jesus’ baptism and how the Holy Spirit came down from heaven in the form of a dove and  God spoke to everyone saying, “This is my son whom I love and in whom I am well pleased.” We also talked about John the Baptist. Take a look at this video to remind you who John the Baptist is.

God’s Story: John the Baptist

Remember those locusts? Have you ever eaten anything that’s even slightly gross like locusts dipped in honey? I’ve eaten some stuff that I’ve thought was yucky, but never bugs. It might seem weird to us but in some cultures it’s completely normal to eat certain bugs. They wouldn’t think it was weird at all.

street meat (street bugs really)

Do you think there are things that you consider normal that other people think could be weird or unusual? Does that mean that these things aren’t good?Read Colossians 3:2. In the NIV it says not to focus on “earthly things.” Eating bugs is an “earthly thing.” Does eating bugs or not eating bugs make you a good person or a bad person? No! It doesn’t really make a difference, does it?

What does the verse in Colossians say we should focus on? What does make a difference in our lives? Jesus! When we start to see things from his perspective we start to see ourselves and others differently- how Jesus sees us. And here’s the thing… Jesus thinks you’re amazing. Even with all the weird things we do. Even with the mistakes we make. Jesus loves us. He died so that we wouldn’t have to focus on all the wrong things we’ve done, instead we can focus on all the right things Jesus has done. And then he’ll help us be more like him.

This week, look for things that point to God in your life. Maybe it’s a song, or a book. Maybe it’s a person. Keep a lookout! And don’t forget, God might be using you to point someone to him, too! So look for ways to show love and kindness this week : )

The Truth About You…Creation

Sun, Moon & Stars

“God determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.”

Psalm 147:4

This week in Kidventure we talked about how God created the sun, moon, and stars. We talked about how amazing God is to have created such a big universe and how we enjoy star gazing and moon gazing.

We also heard the story of Abraham and Sarah and how God made them a promise. Do you remember what that promise was? If you need a refresher, watch this video:

God’s Story: Abraham

God’s plan from the beginning of creation was to send Jesus as the rescuer. The good news is that because Jesus came and died so that we could be close to God, we are now part of Abraham’s family, too! Isn’t that cool?

Just like Psalm 174:4 says, God counts all the stars and knows them each by name, God knows you, too, right down to each hair on your head. You are so special to him, he wants to know you and love you well.

Spend some time this week star gazing. As you look at the stars remember how big God is and how little you are. Isn’t it amazing that such a big God cares so much about us?

The Truth About You…Creation

Land and Plants

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

John 15:5

This week in Kidventure we talked about how God created land and plants. Even though God hadn’t created people or animals yet God had set a plan in motion and he knew that we’d all need food to live.


Read Genesis 1:9-13. Why do you think the Bible mentions that all the plants and fruit and trees had seeds in them? Could we grow more plants and fruit and trees without seeds? No! But guess what? God can! Isn’t that amazing? All he had to do was speak and it appeared. God is so powerful.


We also talked about how Jesus described himself in John 15:5 as a vine and we are branches of that vine. What does the verse say about staying connected to Jesus? What are some ways that you can stay connected to Jesus?

God has such a great plan for us. He created food for us because he wanted to nourish us so we would stay healthy and strong. He sent Jesus to us so that we’d have a way to stay connected with him so our hearts would stay healthy and strong. You can think of it as food for our soul!

Do something this week that will help other people be nourished. Maybe you can take food to drop off at a food bank. That will nourish their bodies. Maybe you could remember to pray for someone every day this week. That will nourish their soul. No matter what you decide to do, know that when we help nourish others God feeds us, too. God wants you to stay connected to him, you’re one of his favourite people!

Another way you can stay connected to God is by practicing your memory verse! Our memory verse for this series is Nehemiah 9:6

“You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You made them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.”

And for the younger kids:

“God made the stars, He made the trees, He made the animals, and God made me. From everything big to everything small, We thank you God, you made it all!”

And here is the video of the actions we recorded! Stay posted for the younger group’s action next week.

The Truth About You…Creation

Water Above and Water Below

“The disciples were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Mark 4:41


This week in Kidventure we talked about how on day two of creation God separated the waters below from the waters above. We talked a bit about the plan God has in place to store water and send it on rivers and in clouds when the earth and people need it. Then we talked about Jesus calming a wild storm. Read Mark 4:35-41 for the whole story.

What do you think it was like for the disciples to be in a boat while a storm was raging over the water and the waves were splashing over the boat? Why do you think Jesus was calm while it was storming? (more than calm! what was Jesus doing?) How did Jesus calm the disciples fears?

Now, with your mom and dad’s help, get a few balloons, a marker, and a safety pin. Blow up the balloons and tie them tight.

Do you ever feel afraid? Do you have any fears? Write them, or have your parents write them, on the balloon with the marker.

Then hold up the safety pin. The safety pin is like Jesus and the balloon is like our fears. What do you think would happen if the fears got close to Jesus? Try it and see what happens.

Jesus has the power to destroy our fears just like the pin can pop the balloons. Do you think it would matter if the balloon was bigger or smaller? Are there any fears that are too big for Jesus?  Jesus’ power and love are not limited by the size of our fears. He created us and everything else in the universe. Whenever you start to feel afraid of something remember Jesus calming the storm, and remember the balloons popping. There is nothing too great or too small for him to handle.

Here’s a song to help you remember why you shouldn’t be afraid.

I’m Not Afraid (Stop-motion)

The Truth About You…Creation

Light and Darkness

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

John 8:12

We’ve started a new year in Kidventure and what better place to start than at the beginning of everything! Our first series is about the creation of the world and our universe. Let’s take a look at how God spoke and created everything we can see, feel, hear, taste, and smell.

The first thing God created was… light! Read Genesis 1:3-5. It actually says God separated the light from the darkness. I found a cool picture that represents that. Maybe this is what it looked like to separate light from dark. What do you think it looked like?light

The amazing thing is no one but God knows what it looked like because he was the only one who was there!

Why do you think the first thing God did was create day and night?Have you ever tried to do anything in the dark? What about when the power goes out? We all run for flashlights and candles pretty fast, don’t we? It’s hard to do anything when it’s dark, we bump into things and trip and fall.

God made physical light for our eyes to see by, but he also knew we’d need another kind of light. A light for our hearts to see by. Read John 8:12. What other kind of light do we need to help us live? What would it be like for our hearts to live in darkness?

What an amazing God we have. Not only does he take care of the things our bodies need, he takes care of things our hearts need, too.

The days are getting shorter and shorter now. Sometime this week when it gets dark, but before you go to bed, have your family sit around your table and turn off the lights. Have your mom or dad help you light a candle. As you light the candle remember that God gave us light to help our eyes see and God gave us Jesus to help our hearts see.

Our memory verse for this series is Nehemiah 9:6
“You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You made them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.”

And for the younger kids:                                                                               “God made the stars, He made the trees,                                                       He made the animals, and God made me.                                                 From everything big to everything small,                                                     We thank you God, you made it all!”

And check out this new song we learned in Kidventure today. Keep practicing it at home and remember that God knows and loves all of His creation, and that includes you!
