EC September 2019: Count With Me

Early Childhood Ministry Lessons for the Month of September.


When was the last time you really looked at everything God made? Taking a moment to walk outside or search for the wonders of the world online will totally change the way you share this month’s Bible stories with preschoolers. We need that WONDER dial turned way up! ALL the way up! And the best way to do that is to experience some of that wonder! When we take the time to look at this amazing world God made, we are filled with awe and wonder. It’s that feeling of wonder we want our preschoolers to have as they learn about God’s creation.


WEEK 1 | SEPTEMBER 1, 2019

We will introduce our preschoolers to the idea of creation and that God made everything. We will then review days one and two of creation. Story Focus: On days one and two, God made the light and dark and sky and water. God made the light and the dark so we could have day and night. Then, He created the beautiful sky and the waters below.


WEEK 2 | SEPTEMBER 8, 2019

We continue with creation in week two and introduce what God made on day three of creation.

Story Focus: On day three, God made the land, plants, and sea. God created land to separate the waters. On the land, He created beautiful plants—some we even eat!


WEEK 3 | SEPTEMBER 15, 2019

During week three, preschoolers will hear about day four of creation.

Story Focus: On day four, God made the sun, moon, and stars. God created the sun to keep us warm during the day and the moon that we can see at night. He created every twinkling star in the sky


WEEK 4 | SEPTEMBER 22, 2019

Week four will be our preschoolers’ favorite as they learn that God made the birds, fish, and animals on days five and six of creation.

Story Focus: On days five and six, God made the birds, fish, and animals. God didn’t just create just one kind of fish or bird. He created so many different kinds of fish and birds. And, He made so many amazing animals too. But, that’s not all God made on day six. He made people too.





WEEK 5 | SEPTEMBER 28, 2019

We’ll talk more about God’s most special creation, people, in week five.

Story Focus: On day six, God made the most special thing: people. Then He rested. God created each and every one of us, and it was VERY good. Then, on day seven of creation, God rested
