God is Keeper

Big Truth:

God is Keeper

Colossians 1:15-17; Isaiah 45:5-8; Job 38; Psalm 135:6-7; 145:14; Acts 17:25; Matthew 6:30; John 10:28; John 17:11

Bible Verse:

And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 

Colossians 1:17

Big Ideas:

  • God keeps everything alive.
  • God keeps His promises.
  • God keeps His people and gives them security.

Bible Passage:

Genesis 6-8; Matthew 6:25-26

Identity:

“God is.” God exists. There is only one God, and He is the only one worthy of our worship and praise. And, by His grace and mercy, He has made Himself known to us. We do not worship one who is distant from us or who is uninvolved with His creation. This series walks through nine attributes– nine realities that unpack who God is. These realities are so foundational that preschoolers can learn them, and yet are so deep that they impact and inform every aspect of our lives throughout our entire lives.

During the summer, elementary through high school are aligned under the same Big Truths, Bible passages, and Big Ideas as we invite families to return to the foundational truths of who God is.
