Adam and Eve's Sin
This week your children will learn about Adam & Eve.....
God created a perfect world, free of sin. After being tempted, both Adam and Eve sinned. This sin changed our world forever. The story of Adam and Eve teaches children that God gives us rules with consequences for disobedience. They also learn he is a loving God who forgives us even when we sin.
Don't forget to reiterate daily, the story’s key concepts.
There are consequences when we do not listen.
God forgives us even when we sin.
We must obey Gods instructions.
God asked Adam and Eve to obey one rule – do not eat from the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden. Eve was tempted by a serpent in the garden which caused both Adam and Eve to sin. We must be careful of what we do because God sees everything.
The song that corresponds with the story of the week is:
"Be Careful Little Eyes What You See"
You can do motions along with the song
to keep the children engaged.
