Sunday School Ministry
THEME: “GOD’S World and GOD’S People”
MEMORY VERSE: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years”. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” –Genesis 1:1-2; 1:14; 1:27 (NIV).
