Teaching young children about Creation is a true delight. As Sunday school teachers describe how God spoke all things into existence, we can watch the awe in kids’ faces. We also might see the wheels in their heads start turning! Kids rightfully ponder: If God made everything, then who made God?
For Christians of all ages, the first two chapters of Genesis spark amazement plus loads of questions. Little learners are especially interested in how God was created (or “invented”), where God came from, who are God’s parents, and how old is God. As kidmin workers recount how God lovingly crafted people in his image and made us who we are, kids are likely to challenge you to explain who made God.
How will you respond when a child asks, “If God made us, who made God?” To help you prepare, check out this wide variety of lessons about Creation for Sunday school
