Who Were the First People? {The Catechism and Kids}

Who Were the First People? {The Catechism and Kids}

This week, we’re continuing with our modified Catechism questions and answers. We’ve talked briefly about the Scriptures and where they came from and now we turn our attention to the first people on earth.   Here’s a video we used to help recap the Bible lessons from the last few weeks from one of my favorite series, What’s in the Bible with Phil Vischer.

This week’s questions are:

Q16: Who were the first people?

A: Adam and Eve

Who were the first people

Q17: How did God create people?

A: God created them in his own image from the dust of the ground.

How did God create people

Our supporting Scripture is Psalm 100:3a:

Know that the Lord is God.  It is he who made us, and we are His.  

Our Monthly Memory Verse is: 2 Timothy 3:16


For our lesson time, we’ll talk about the Creation account as well as Adam’s responsibilities in the garden.  If you’re looking for coordinating activities, crafts, or games — ideas abound online, but I’ll highlight a few of my favorites below!
