Investing God's Word Into Our Children

Firm Foundations 1:1 – God Created August 9, 2010

Scripture: “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth…” (Col. 1:16) – Memorize this verse to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. Create your own actions to accompany the verse or use ours:
“For by Him” – Point up
“All things were created” – Pretend to hammer, making one hand a fist and banging it on the open palm of the other hand.
“Things in heaven and things on earth” – Hold hands up high, then shake them arcing downwards as though drawing a circle.

Catechism: Who made you? God.  What else did God make? God made all things.
Explain to your children that you are embarking on a project to memorize a list of questions and answers about God. If you want a progress chart,  Then practice this week’s Q&As together.
