Memory Verse: Genesis 1:3; Then God said, “Let there be light” and light appeared!
Genesis 1: 1-5 Let’s close our eyes and cover them with our hands. What can you see? Nothing! No toys, no colors, no people, and it is dark. The Bible tells us that in the very beginning that is what the world was like. It was dark and there was nothing to see! Do you like it when you can’t see anything? No! God didn’t like it either so He said, “Let there be light? Then guess what happened: Light appeared! (Tell children they may open their eyes now.) That is much better isn’t it?
Let’s try that again! Cover your eyes and say with me. God said, “Let there be light” and light appeared. With very young children, this is an opportunity to play “Peek-a-boo.” Each time, repeat the verse.
God saw that the light was good. Then God called the light Day and the darkness Night. That was the very first day. I am glad God made light! Aren’t you? God made light because He loves us. He wants us to see all the wonderful things He made for us. Let’s thank Him for the light He made.
(Lead the children in a prayer.)
Thank you God for light to see.
Thank you for your love for me.
