MASTERPIECE

In this series, we are looking at attributes of God that make God, God! It is important to know the character of the God that we believe in just as how it’s important to know the character of the people around us. As we know God more, it makes it easier for us to love Him and trust in Him and His Power.

Week 1: I Am Created in God’s Image

Week 1: 

The Big Point: I Am Created in God’s Image

Family Conversation

You can choose to have this conversation anytime after the session on Sunday itself, or another day in the week after the session of HopeKids Online!

What will you choose if you were asked to pick out the most glorious part of God’s creation? Many will pick mountain ranges or oceans and rugged shorelines, but not many will pick an answer that the Bible provides us with: you and me. Human beings are really the greatest part, the masterpiece of God’s creation as we show more of God than anything else in Creation. God said all that He created were good, but after Adam and Eve were created, He said that His creation was “very good”! Revel in the fact that men and women, boys and girls, we are all God’s masterpieces!  We are created in God’s image, loved and known by God and accepted through Jesus!

Talk to your child about what they just learnt by asking them these questions:

  1. What does “Masterpiece” mean?
    → An artist’s best and most beautiful piece of work! 

  2. What are you learning in HopeKids these few weeks?
    → Learning that we are all created and loved by God and that people are actually God’s precious masterpiece!

  3. What did you learn in HopeKids today?
    → Big Point: I am created in God’s Image

  4. That sounds really cool, what does it mean to be made in God’s image?
    → To be in God’s image means we are created to be most like God. We show how God is like, to all other living things He created!

  5. Who were the very first people who God created?
    → Adam and Eve 

  6. If all people are created in God’s image, is it ever okay to be unkind to another person?
    → No. We need to learn that all human beings, even those who are different from us are all created by God and created in God’s image.

  7. How should we treat all people who are created in God’s image?
    → We should always be loving and respectful of all types of people because all people are made in the likeness of God.

You may want to discuss the reflection questions that were given to the primary kids. [Activity 7] Hear from the kids what they find difficult to understand. This can be a great opportunity to grow in understanding God along with your kids, as well as sharpening their growing knowledge of God! 

  • What does it mean that we are made “in God’s image”? How does God see us, human beings compared to all other things/living things He created? 
  • If all people are created in God’s image, how should we treat all people, even those who are different from us?

Hey Parents! Read here first!

Through this period of uncertainty, we are praying for you and your family, and we are here to support you in leading your child to learn more about God and cultivate godly character! Each week, you can access the HopeKids Online experience which includes a fun and interactive video, printable colouring and activity pages and a conversation guide to help the children process what they are learning.

Here’s how a Stay Home Sunday could look like:

Look through the HopeKids Service Experience!
Prepare and print out the Kids Activities in the pack.
Prepare writing materials such as pencils, pens and colour pencils.

Invite your child to join in the time of praise and worship together!
After the time of worship, your child can start on the kids activities as you listen to the sermon.

HopeKids Online Service will be streamed on Church Online after the adult service ends.

After service, ask your child what he / she has learnt about God today or even share what you have personally learnt. Take some time to pray together.

We really want to encourage families to leverage this time to be together and focus on things of eternal significance. Daddy and Mummy are the best role models! When kids see how you seek, worship and learn about God on a daily basis, it inspires them to want to believe in God and do their best for God too!

We look forward to hearing stories of this precious time and memories made together with God and each other as the whole family draws closer to God together.

HopeKids Team
