In The Beginning

Creation and Fall of Man

Life Night Outline

Goal of this Night

The goal for this Life Night is to help the teens recognize God’s plan of salvation from the beginning of creation. This night will also address the issues commonly associated with this Scripture, such as evolution. This Life Night will give the teens practical ways to live in hope of the promise of redemption and the coming of Christ.

About this night

The debate about how the world was created is often a heated one. Creationism, evolutionism (and every theory in between) often pits science and religion against one another. This Life Night starts with the teens breaking open the stories of creation in the Bible with skits. After the skits, they are reminded that the point of the stories is not HOW God created the world, but WHY He created it. The teaching for the night demonstrates how God’s incredible love for us is evident in the biblical stories of creation and is continued through the Incarnation of Christ. The story of creation ends with Adam and Eve ejected from Eden, but our story continues with Jesus offering himself as a sacrifice for those and all future sins. The small group discussion gives the teens a chance to examine the Fall of Adam and Eve and connect this story of original sin with the sin they see in their own lives. Finally, the Send gives teens an opportunity to seek God’s forgiveness for their sins through Christ and invite and accept His love again.

Parental Notice

This Life Night breaks open the stories of creation and reminds teens that the point of the stories isn’t HOW God created the world, but WHY He created it. God’s incredible love for us is evident in the biblical stories of creation and is continued through the Incarnation of Christ. Possible discussion questions for the week:

  1. Why did God create the world? Why did God create us?
  2. Why is Reconciliation important? When can we go together as a family?

Environment

The environment for this night mimics the stories of creation so the environment should take on the feel of Eden. Fill a small kiddy-pool with water and some plastic fish. Birds (paper or stuffed) can be strung from the ceiling. Stuffed animals and hunting decoys can be set among potted trees and bushes. On large pieces of poster board draw a sun and a moon and hang them on opposite sides of the room. At the front of the room, include a large cross to symbolize that Jesus is the bridge between the God’s original creation and our relationship with Him today.
