Church takes kids into creation

The kids from Jerusalem Christian Church, a new plant in Lafayette, La., headed out to the zoo to learn about God’s creation work on the sixth day.  Dubbed Day 6 at the Zoo, it was the first of several planned to encourage children to experience creation first hand. 

Kids from the congregation, as well as guests, had lunch at church and then set off for the Zoo of Acadiana. Each child was given a bingo card.  As we explored the zoo and met the animals we crossed off each animal and learned a fun bible fact for each. 

Jerusalem will be hosting future creation day events at the planetarium, the beach, a garden, etc.  in the hope that the events will become a children’s ministry called Creation Kids.
