Sunday, March 3 - Image of God


We start the month by looking closely at Genesis 1:26-28. When God created people, He did something special. He created them in His image and gave them the job of taking care of creation.

Bottom Line: God made me in His image. We hope to help kids understand that being made in the image of God means we can love, show kindness, be creative, solve problems, and care for others all because we reflect and respond to God’s character.

Scripture this weekGenesis 1:26-28

So God created human beings in his own likeness.
    He created them to be like himself.
    He created them as male and female.
