Elementary, August 7: Deceived in the Garden

Hi Journey Kids parents!

Even when we mess up big time, God still loves us. Adam and Eve had perhaps the biggest mess-up of all time, and still, God had a plan to make things right. How amazing is that! This week, we’re taking a look at the incredible story of the Garden of Eden, and we’ll discover that even when we make BIG mistakes, God’s love for us is always bigger.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Deceived in the Garden

Big Idea: God’s love is greater than our sin.

Memory Verse: “But here is how God has shown His love for us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

There are times when we all feel like we’ve messed up so badly that things are broken beyond repair, but God’s story is a story of redemption. God will never stop pursuing us. He’ll never give up on us. My hope is that through this story, we’ll remember that even in the darkest moments of our lives, God is with us and He has a plan for us.
