Origins: A Series on Genesis 1-3

June 7 to July 5, 2015, we will be looking at the first three chapters of Genesis.

Worship is each Sunday at 10am at 590 University Cres.

June 7 - The Good Creation  Genesis 1:1-25

We need reminding that even apart from human beings God is pleased with creation. God called everything good as it was created. We will also celebrate communion this Sunday.

June 14 - In God’s Image  Genesis 1:26-2:3

What does it mean for human beings to be created in the image of God? Following worship this day is a picnic lunch and games for kids.

June 21 - The Garden   Genesis 2:4-24

The first declaration of something not being good in God's creation is "it is not good that the man should be alone." Genesis 2 describes paradise, which is only complete with animals, Adam and Eve. 

June 28 - The Original Sin  Genesis 3:1-8

Adam and Eve tasted the fruit from the forbidden tree and hid from God in shame. What might this first act of discord teach us about our own lives?

July 5 - Truth and Consequences  Genesis 3:8-24

Adam blames Eve, Eve blames the serpent, and God curses them all. As the truth comes out about Adam and Eve's actions, they must face the consequences. Is this a tragic end to the paradise story, or just the first act of humanity's walk with God. Can our alienation from God ever be fixed? Can we ever return to the garden?
