2nd & 3rd Grade Week 1, October 5

He Makes Beautiful Things

Bible Story: He Makes Beautiful Things (Creation Story) • Genesis 1:1–2:1

Bottom Line: You were created, so you can be creative.

Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God

prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10, NIV

Life App: Creativity—using your imagination to do something unique.

Basic Truth: I can trust God no matter what.

Early Arriver Activity (8:45) (10:30) (5:45) What You Need: No supplies needed

What You Do:

Ask, “When someone tells you to be creative what is the first think you think about? Or when someone asks if you are creative, how would you answer that question?” Discuss the kids’ answers to these questions. Guide them to start thinking about creativity as more than just arts and crafts and music.

Plug In (9:00) (10:45) (6:00) Make A List What You Need: white boards, markers

What You Do:

As a group, make a quick list of famous artists/sculptors/paintings or art that they know. If you get stuck before time is up, use your smartphone or tablet and Google “famous artwork” and/or “famous artists” and look at the images that pop up. Let the kids see if they recognize anything.

Note: Depending on the school districts, kids should know about famous artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet, etc. You could even use Dr. Seuss or Walt Disney as well as other children’s illustrators for other artists on your list.

What You Say:

“All these artists are pretty good, huh? I mean, I look at art like this and think, How do they make their paint brush do that? Or, you’re telling me someone just used their hands to sculpt that? It’s unbelievable! [Transition] But I know someone who’s even more creative and amazing than anyone we’ve talked about yet. He has made masterpiece after masterpiece … including you! Let’s go to Large Group and hear all about it.” Lead your group to the Large Group area.

Prayer Time After large group, gather children in their small groups. Lead them in prayer focusing on “The Bottom Line.” Catch On #1 Spell It Out (memory verse activity / great for active learners / optional large-group activity) What You Need: Play dough, “Spell It Out” (Activity Page)

What You Do:

Look up the verse in the Bible and read it together.

nd rd Finding verses with 2 and 3 graders: Guide them to open their Bibles to the front and find the table of contents. (Hold up a Bible opened to the table of contents to show the kids what the page looks like.) When the kids find the table of contents, lead them to find Ephesians in the list under “New Testament.” When the kids find Ephesians, lead them to look at the page number beside the word. Explain that the number tells them on what page they can find Ephesians. Help the kids find the page. When they find Ephesians, explain that the big numbers on the page are the chapter numbers. Help them find chapter 2. Explain that the small numbers are verse numbers. Help them find verse 10 in chapter 2.

Hand out enough play dough for each person in the group. Place the cards from the “Spell It Out” Activity Page on the ground. When you say, “go,” they need to work together to spell out the missing words in the verse, letter by letter, using the clay. As the kids create the missing words using the clay, they should intermingle those with the cards, eventually forming the entire verse.

Optional: Make this a large group competition activity with the first group to finish the whole verse as the winner!

Note: Leave the verse set up for the remainder of Small Group. You will use it in the prayer activity.

What You Say:

“We are created by a creative God who has imparted some of His own creativity into us so that we are a remarkable and creative species. It even says that we are His handiwork. Like, He is the artist and we are His special masterpiece! [Apply] Now, if you are a masterpiece, created by a creative God to do good works, you’ve got to act like it! That may mean using your gifts to honor God, or help others, or figure things out. [Impress] You were created, so you can be creative!” Catch On #2 Stamp On The World (application activity) What You Need: “Stamps” Activity Page, cardstock, construction paper, scissors, masking tape, duct tape, glue, fabric, felt, pipe cleaners, markers

What You Say:

“We were all created with an imagination. We can use that to leave our own unique stamp on the world. This is not just in the area of arts, but in how we approach problem solving, loving others, doing our work, and lots of other things.

(Show kids the Activity Page.) “Look at some of these stamps. (Optional: search for images of actual stamps and pick a few to print.) What do these say to you? Maybe a holiday? A special time of year? A special person in history? There are stamps for the Olympics, stamps of superheroes, and stamps of our flag. There are different stamps for different times of the year, for different countries, and the list goes on and on! All these stamps are unique—so what would a stamp all about you look like? [Apply] I want you to use these supplies to make your own stamp that describes you and the mark you’re making on the world. [Make It Personal] (Tell the group something that would be on your personal stamp.) [Impress] You were created, so you can be creative. And remember: God made you, just as you are, in the image of HIM! No one else is like you! You are His creation!”

What You Do:

Use the supplies provided to make your own stamp that describes you and your mark on the world. When everyone is finished, let anyone who wants to explain their stamp have 30 seconds to tell the group about it.

What is your favorite thing to do in the fall?

Is it something you do with family or friends or by yourself?

What makes it your favorite?

Have you done it yet this fall?

Plug In (9:00) (10:45) (6:00) Puzzled What You Need: 30- to 50-piece puzzle

What You Do:

Dump the puzzle on the floor in the middle of your group. Without them noticing, sneak a piece out of the pile and put it in your pocket. Tell them to “figure it out.” If they ask you any questions, just respond, “You all can figure it out.” If they get really stuck, pull the piece out of your pocket to see if it will help. If they don’t get stuck, see if they can complete the puzzle with the piece missing.

What You Say:

“Sometimes it’s hard to figure things out, huh? Like with this puzzle—you didn’t know what it was supposed to look like, so what did you do to figure it out? (Pause for responses.) [Transition] Today, we’re going to hear about a young lady who had a really tough problem and had to figure it out. And we’re talking a life or death situation! Let’s go to Large Group and hear more.” Lead your group to the Large Group area.

Prayer Time After large group, gather children in their small groups. Lead them in prayer focusing on “The Bottom Line.” Catch On #1 Figure It Out (application activity / great for active learners) What You Need: “Figure It Out” Activity Page

What You Do:

Divide your group into pairs and let each pair pick one situation card. Encourage them to use their imagination and think of creative ways to solve the problem. Give everyone three to four minutes to come up with a plan and then allow each group to act out or share their situation and their creative solution.

What You Say:

“God created you in His image—so the image of God in us gives us the ability to imagine, and that imagination allows us to solve problems and figure things out! I really love what you all came up with—those were some awesome solutions! [Apply] How can you use your creativity to figure out some problems in your own life? Does anyone have an example? [Make It Personal] (Tell them about a time you had to use your imagination to come up with a creative solution to a problem you were having. How did it turn out?) God wants you to [Impress] use your imagination to figure it out. That’s why He gave you an imagination in the first place!” Catch On #2 Decode the Code (memory verse activity) What You Need: “Decode the Code” Activity Pages, pencils, Bibles

What You Do:

Hand everyone an Activity Page, a Bible, and a pencil. The first step is to decode the code. Some of the code has blanks and they’ll need to fill it in before they can use the code to answer the question. (If some of the kids are having trouble you can give them this hint: The first code has an image of a key, and it’s a “k.” The second code has an image of a yo-yo and it’s a “y.”) Once the code is complete, kids need to use it to fill in the blanks of the memory verse. When they’re finished, encourage them to look up the verse in the Bible to check their work.

What You Say:

“That took some real problem solving to figure that code out! I’m impressed. God made you all so creative and He gave you great imaginations. What did you do that helped you crack the code? [Apply] Did you know that using your mind like that could also help you solve other problems? It can! God created you to do good works but that doesn’t mean that all the things He has for you to do will be easy. Sometimes, you’ll have to get creative and [Impress] use your imagination to figure it out. And do you know what? After seeing all the problems and puzzles you’ve solved today, I know you can do it!”

Early Arriver Activity (8:45) (10:30) (5:45) What You Need: No supplies needed

What You Do:

Ask the following questions and allow everyone in your group a chance to answer and share with the group.

 Who knows what they want to be when they grow up?

 Why do you want to do that?

 Have you always wanted to be that or have you changed your mind a couple times?

 Do you know anyone with that job?

Plug In (9:00) (10:45) (6:00) Role Praying What You Need: “Blank Page Prayer” Activity Page, pencils

What You Do:

Pass out the Activity Pages. In the space next to each day of the week, kids should write down a role that they have in their life. For example, they may choose the role of brother, son, teammate, student, classmate, friend,

and cousin, so their page would read like this:

Monday: brother Tuesday: son Wednesday: teammate Thursday: student Friday: classmate Saturday: friend Sunday: cousin Then explain that this “blank page” will be their prayer plan for the week. Each day, they will pray over this role that God has called them to—how can they be the best brother/son/teammate, etc., that God has made them to be? Encourage them to use their imagination to think of ways they could do this role even better than they’re doing it now.

What You Say:

“Do you see how many important roles you all have in your life? God is already using you to do great things!

Great things that He made you to do! It’s not always easy being all these important things, but if you [Impress] use your imagination to do what you were made to do, you will show others just how awesome, loving, and creative our great God is! [Apply] Make sure you take time each day to pray and ask God to show you creative ways you can do what He has created you to do!” Prayer Time After large group, gather children in their small groups. Lead them in prayer focusing on “The Bottom Line.” Catch On #1 What RU Gonna Do? (application activity) What You Need: “What R U Gonna Do?” Activity Page, scissors, glue, markers

What You Do:

Give everyone an Activity Page and demonstrate how to cut out the inside blank square to make a frame. Then let them use all the art supplies to decorate their frame.

What You Say:

[Apply] “Now, when you get home, use some tape to stick your frame to the mirror so that it is a right around your face when you stand in front of the sink. Then, each time you’re standing in front of your mirror brushing your hair or teeth, YOUR face is framed, reminding you that God created you in His image and you were made for a purpose! Now the question is, what are you going to do about it? Now is the time to [Impress] use your imagination to do what you were made to do.” Catch On #2 All About David (review the Bible story) What You Need: “All About David” Activity Page, Bibles

What You Do:

Ask your group to get into pairs and give each pair a set of the cards and a Bible. Explain that they will be racing the other pairs in the group to see who can look up the six verses on the cards and match them with what happened to David in those verses. Once everyone is ready, tell the kids to begin.

–  –  –

What You Say:

“We can learn a lot from David. He was such a cool guy. He was chosen by God, and even when he made mistakes, he asked for forgiveness. But guess what? You were chosen by God too! And He has great things planned for you to do. So, you’ve got to [Impress] use your imagination to do what you were made to do.

What are some ways you can use your imagination to do what God made you to do? [Make It Personal] (Tell your group about something that God has made you to do and how you do that.) [Apply] And you know, when you do that, you’re showing the world how great and creative and awesome God is! Now that’s another reason to dance!” I
