The Story of Creation

  • Genesis 1:1 - 2:3
    Six creative lessons that focus on the joyful and creative character of God revealed in the story, and what it means to be made by God in his joyful and creative character (image). Lessons include a creative art project, a cool special effects-assisted song, use of the book "When God Made the World," and games, a glowing "science" lesson, and free Creation story software.

Adam, Eve, ...and God! God looking for Adam and Eve

  • Genesis 2:4 – 3:24
    This creative set takes a unique look at this story, "beyond the snake and apple" so to speak, and looks at what it reveals about the character of God when confronted with sinful children. The lessons also remind us that God goes with us into difficult lives, and promises us a new paradise one day with him.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

The lesson content in each of our Bible Story Lesson Forums is organized by creative teaching mediums such as art, video, and cooking. In the Rotation Model we teach a major story for several weeks in a row --each week using a different "workshop" (teaching medium). if you're using a traditional "new story each week" model, browse all the workshops for your story and pick one that fits your needs. View a short video about the Model.
