...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
ISAIAH 40:31

This is a journey through God's word. The Bible is so amazing! There are a lot of great stories. Some that we know well and some will surprise us. We will have a lot of fun as we color, watch short cartoons and tell funny stories.

Adam Gets a Job

In the beginning God created the earth. Then he put a man named Adam on the earth. Did you know that Adam means "man"? Do you know anyone named Adam? You can tell them what their name means.
God didn't want Adam to be lazy so he put him in charge of the garden. Have you ever worked in a garden? It is fun!
Then God gave Adam another job. He told Adam to start naming all the animals. God had created the animals but he let Adam name them. Wow! There are a lot of animals in the world! That must have taken a long time! Adam probably had fun naming the animals. He gave some of them short names like--- cow, pig, dog and cat. He gave some of them long names like--- elephant, hippopotamus and rhinoceros. Some he gave funny names like walrus, ostrich and aardvark!
Here is a contest for you. Let's see who can come up with the funniest name for this animal I made up. He has the ears of a bunny, the tail of a cat, the body and legs of a bird and the nose of a pig. He is also a coloring page. Have your mom or dad print out the animal and you can color him.
The story about Adam naming the animals is in the first book of the bible called Genesis. It is in the second chapter. Next week, Adam gets so tired after naming all the animals that he falls into a deep sleep and God does something amazing while Adam is asleep!

  3. This is a great idea Jack. Good to fit in the teaching with entertaining. I vote for the "Stickleggedribatoink" or "Stoink" for short :)

  7. After great consideration and playing around with using portions of each animal for a name, Faith decided to call this critter "Flopus."

    We had fun reading the story about Adam and the animals. We didn't realize until we played this fun game just how difficult it can be to name an animal!

    We'll be back for next week's lesson!
