Who created the universe?

Clive and Ian's Wonder-Blimp of KnowledgeThis summer we’re off to the movies, joining Clive and Ian’s Wonder-Blimp of Knowledge as we search for answers to big questions about God.

Buck Denver is interrupted by a special news alertOur video started off with our old friend Buck Denver giving us a news report. But then Buck was interrupted by an emergency video call.
A kid had a question about God!

It was a really big question: Who Created the Universe?

Use the discussion questions below to talk about what your kids learned. Start the conversation in the car on the way home from church, or around the family dinner table, or wherever your family is gathered together. (If you missed the video showing on Sunday, you can watch it below.)

  • So, who made the universe?
  • What is something that God created? (Easy answer: everything!)
  • What did God think of his creation? (Hint: Genesis 1:31)
  • What is one thing in God’s creation that amazes you?
  • What does God’s creation tell us about God?
  • God created and is still creating through the process of evolution. What are some ways we can be more aware of God’s wonderful creation?
  • Bonus question: I wonder if kangaroos like being so bouncy?

This summer, we hope you’ll join us on our movie adventure and also, continue the learning at home.

This summer: How to share your faith with your kids

Summer is here! This means it’s time for sunshine, lazy days, the beach…

Kids in the lake at sun set

And our annual summer movie series at FUMC!

Just like last year, this summer’s film series launches a way for you to share your faith with your kids. How?

By spending time together, wondering about your questions.

Questions are at the forefront of our videos.

A bunch of questions about God

So many good questions!

Each week we’ll address one question with the help of “Clive & Ian’s Wonder-Blimp of Knowledge.” Perhaps you recall Clive and Ian from last year’s series? That’s them on the left below.

This year Clive and Ian go on adventures in search of answers to questions. They soar in a Wonder-Blimp of Knowledge! (Or is it an Airship of Intelligence?) Check out the questions for July and August.

To help you share your faith with your kids, continue the discussion after class!
Each week receive follow-up topic starters for family discussion. Sign up to this blog (up on the right) and receive an email as class lets out. Start your family talk time on the way home from church!

Important Note:
You may be saying: But what if I can’t answer their questions?

It’s okay! Agree as a family, to dig deeper. Are we allowed to wonder at the mystery of what God is up to? You bet! Sometimes we have to live in the mystery!
