God in Nature (AY)

Adventist Youth (AY)
Summary
Now that creation is complete, God has finished his work, he did His very best because he declared that it was good. However, now is the time for us to do the work he has left for us to do. We all have been given talents but will we utilize our talents or bury them. Will we serve him half-heartedly or will we give our all, and give our best?
This sabbath school program will show us how to give of our best to the master.
Program Aim
Sometimes we need to pack up our Bibles and Hymnals and take a walk outside of the man-made cathedral and enter into the sanctuary made by God's own hand, that place is nature! This week we will be presenting an AY program that takes your church into nature and reminds them that God is the creator and that he speaks to us not only through the Bible but through his creative works.
Scripture References
Psalm 19:1
Theme Song(s)
#93- All things bright and beautiful
Program Audience
Preparations and resources

Instructions:

Form multiple groups (4 - 6 based on the number of people available).

Allow the groups to take 15 - 20 minutes to walk out in the surrounding nature and observe the environment.

Each group should take note of 10 natural things in the environment.

For each Item list the following:

  1. A Bible verse about the item.
  2. What it tells us about God’s qualities or his character.
  3. How it is beneficial to us or other plants and animals.
  4. How can we protect or conserve it.

 

Each group should present their 10 items at the end of their nature walk. Presentations should be limited to 10-15 minutes based on the number of groups present.

God in Nature!

A.Y. Program

 

Overview: This is an outdoor program. Take your church to a nice open area where they can walk and explore various aspects of nature. A place with a body of water would be great, or anywhere that has a nice diversity of plant and animal life.

 

Opening Prayer

Song Service (sing songs about nature, eg. All things bright and beautiful)

Scripture reading:

Special: song or poem about nature.

 

Psalm 19:1 reminds us that “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”

 

Outside of the Bible, there is another place where God reveals himself. He is written on the leaves of every tree, his glory is etched into every stone and we can hear about him through the preaching of the wind and waves. The birds sing His praises new every morning and the stars display his majesty.

 

Job 12: 7-9 encourages us to ask nature about who God is: “But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?” 

 

Nature knows it’s creator and testifies of His magnificence everyday. Therefore according to Romans 1:20, you have no excuse for not understanding the works of the Lord. “20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

 

Today we will be seeking to find God in nature, we will learn of the creator through all that he has created.
