Dear Parents,

This Sunday, your kids will be taken back to the garden of Eden.  Before the fall, Adam and Eve enjoyed a loving, two-way relationship with God. The garden was a true paradise. God filled the garden with good gifts so that they might enjoy them and give thanks to God. The Lord gave them only one restriction: “You must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” and the punishment was severe: “You will certainly die” (Gen. 2:17).

Adam and Eve believed the serpent’s lie, and they sinned. Because of their sin, God cast them out of the garden. Though they did not die right away, sin’s effect was immediate and thorough. Their lives and their children’s lives—and the lives of all of mankind—would be forever affected by their choice. As your kids become increasingly aware of the bad news—that we are all sinners from birth—rejoice with them over the good news: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Tim. 1:15).

Bible Passage: Genesis 3:1-24

Key Passage: 1 Corinthians 8:6

yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.

Main Point: Adam and Even sinned.

Big Picture Question: What is sin? Sin is breaking God’s law.

We are very excited to partner with you to provide you the tools and resources to disciple your children into followers of Christ!!  Thank you for continuing this journey with us!!


Looking to find a church in Spruce Pine, NC with a Gospel-Centered Kids and Family Ministry?

Take a look at Seedlings, The Grove Church’s Kids Ministry!  We use The Gospel Project for Kids in order to partner with parents to make disciples and transform the hearts of their children.  Each week, children go chronologically through the Bible learning about Jesus.  When you pick up your children, you’ll receive an Activity Sheet and Card detailing what your child learned and tips and ideas on how to continue the conversation at home.  If you want to visit us with your children, you can go HERE and pre-register to make checking in your children much faster on Sunday.

We meet each Sunday at 9:30am for coffee and worship starts at 10:00am.
