We love you and are praying that God brings comfort and peace during this time. Below you will find this week’s resources. You can also find this content on our Heights App – found in the Apple App or Google Play stores.

The green represents the land, and the blue represents the water. (Pause.) Great! Now take these wedges We will color pictures of the things that God made on this circle. (Point.)

Okay! On day three, God made land, plants, and sea. Next is day four. God made the sun, moon, and stars on day four. God made the birds and fish on day five. Do you see the picture of birds and fish? (Pause.) Great! Then on day six, God made animals and people. Fantastic! This wedge with the writing says, ‘God looked at everything he had made, and it was very good.’ After that, He rested. (Stack and align child’s papers and Add the brad to secure.) We’ll use these as we review our story one more time.”
We know that God made the whole world and everything in it. In the very beginning, there was nothing—no people, no animals, no land, no ocean, no sun, just nothing. But there was God. And God was about to do something amazing.
On the first day, God said ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light, and it was good. Then God decided to separate the light from the dark. He called the light ‘day’ and the dark ‘night.’ Find the picture of light and dark. (Pause.) On the second day, God made the water and the sky up above. Find the picture of the sky and water. (Pause.) On the third day, God made the land, sea, plants, and trees. Can you find the picture of day three? (Pause.) Nice!
On the fourth day, God made the sun, moon, and lots of tiny lights in the night sky called stars. Move to that picture. (Pause.) Great! On the fifth day, God made everything that swims in the sea and flies in the sky. God made fish and birds with their wonderful colors and shapes! Find that picture. (Pause.) Super! On the sixth day, God made all the animals, big and small. But that wasn’t all God made on day six. He made His most special creation—people! God made the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve. He told Adam and Ever to eat the fruit from the trees in the garden and watch over all the animals.After God made the people, He looked over everything He had made and said, ‘That’s very good.’ On the seventh day, God looked at all the good things He had made and rested. God made the whole world and everything in it, and it was good. Who made everything? [Bottom Line] God made everything."
