The Day of Rest (July 6-7)

The Day of Rest (July 6-7)

We worship the God who creates. In our lesson, we will learn that after God created the world, He rested. God wants us to rest on the Sabbath and remember who He is and what He has done.

When you sit at home: Age 3-Grade 2 read Genesis 2:1-3 and Grades 3-5 read Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:8-11. On the seventh day, God rested. What do you think that means? Why do you think God rested?

   Ages 4-K Whisper Verse: “God rested.”

When you walk along the road: God blessed the seventh day and made it holy. That means to set it apart or make it special for Him. What can you do on the Sabbath to make it a special day for honoring God?

When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “God, thank You for blessing the seventh day and making it holy. Show us how to rest from work and celebrate who You are and what You have done. Amen.”

When you get up: Print the names of several of the things God created on slips of paper and place them in a bowl or bag. Divide into two teams and use them to play Pictionary or Charades.
