Image Of God --- Genesis 1:26-28

In our first week, we start at the beginning—literally.
In Genesis 1:26-28, we read that when God created people, God did something special. We reflect God’s image to the world.

This doesn’t mean that we physically look like God. Instead, we demonstrate what God is like in the way we create and imagine, show love and kindness, seek justice, and offer mercy. We get to fill the earth with God’s goodness, each in our own individual way.

Our Bottom Line This Week Is: You were made in God’s image.
We hope to help kids understand that being made in the image of God means we can love, show kindness, be creative, solve problems, and care for others—all because we reflect and respond to God’s character.
Kids will get to explore how they can reflect God’s image to the people in their world.

Our Memory Verse This Month Is: ... "How You Made Me Is Amazing And Wonderful. I Praise You For That. What You Have Done Is Wonderful. I Know That Very Well."  Psalm 139:14 , NIRV

Remember that Individuality is: Discovering who you’re meant to be so you can make a difference.
=============================================================================THE CONNECTION BETWEEN INITIATIVE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG PICTURE


God is one of a kind, with no beginning and no end. Everything God has created is unique and one of a kind, including people created in God’s image. Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems.
To see how we can do this well, we should look to Jesus. Jesus showed us what it means to be created in God’s image in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value—no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this as we discover who we’re meant to be and live out the individuality God gave us.
