PROMISE: A 5-WEEK SERIES FROM GENESIS ON GOD’S PROMISES
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA:  GOD’S PROMISES ARE FOR NOW AND FOR LATER.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

When God first created the world, it was paradise! But it’s not always easy for us to imagine a perfect world where nothing needs to be fixed — especially when we hear sad or scary news about the world we live in today. But even though the world today isn’t exactly perfect, there’s good news! Even though things sometimes go wrong, God’s promises can always be trusted. As kids learn about famous figures from Genesis in this series, they will be reminded of God’s faithfulness through the promises that were made to them, like God’s promises to fix what was broken and to always show us mercy, and that, even though they might sometimes take time to be fulfilled, God keeps all promises – both the promises God made for now and the promises God made for later.

Do your kids have a lot of questions, sometimes unrelated to the topic at hand? That’s okay! We hope that their natural curiosty helps them go deeper with questions about God and the Bible.
