Main Idea

The Bible story of Creation helps us develop a sense of wonder and awe over what God has made and helps us discover our Christian responsibility to take care of our world.


Unit Description

The Creation unit uses the Bible story included in Genesis 1:1 - 2:4. It is the story of the beginning of the universe and this passage tells us:

  • that all of it came into being through God's creative activity;
  • about the six days of creation (light and darkness; sky and water; land, sea, and plants; sun, moon, and stars; fish and birds; animals and humans) and the seventh day, a day of rest;
  • that God "saw that it was good";
  • that humankind was created in God's image and that God blessed them and asked them to take responsibility of the world.

Scripture: Genesis 1:1 - 2:4

  • discover God created the world and everything in it;
  • understand that they are created in the image of God;
