Bible Story: Creation Day 4: Sun, moon, and stars | Genesis 1:14-19
Main Point: God made sun, moon, and stars!
Memory Verse: “You made the world and everything in it.” Psalm 89:11
During Wonder Clubhouse: All Aboard we’re heading to Creation Station to make discoveries and learn about the world around us and that God made everything – the sun, moon, stars, planets, clouds, rain, oceans, animals, flowers, you, me … everything!
We learned on day four of creation:
God made (point up)
sun (hold up left hand)
moon, (hold up right hand)
and stars! (hold up both hands)
God put the sun, moon, and stars in the sky so we can have lots of light in the day and just a little bit of light at night. God is so amazing!
This week, remind your child to thank God for giving us the sun, moon, and stars. Talk about how the sun keeps us warm and shows us light during the day, or maybe see if your child can count the stars in the sky. God made all the stars in the sky and the moon. There are so many reasons we need both day and night, so God created the sun, moon, and stars to help separate them. Thank you God!
Each weekend children visit Quest during this eight week series they can collect main point train cars to add to their All Aboard poster. These train cars will help remind them of all the things God created. Children can collect six train cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.
Memory Verse – Psalm 89:11
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Psalm 89:11. Children can recite this verse every week during the series to earn bonus train cars to put on their All Aboard poster.
You (point up)
made (fist on top of fist)
the world (form a circle with arms over head)
and everything in it. (spread arms wide)
Genesis 89:11 (open hands like a book)
Knowing this verse helps children remember to thank God for what He created! Help your child practice this verse. Then ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.
1 REMEMBER: What did God create in today’s Bible story? (sun, moon, and stars)
2 THINK: Did God create the sun, moon and stars on day TWO or day FOUR? (day four)
3 FOLLOW: What will you thank God for today that he created on day four? (sun, moon, and stars)
