Family of Origin: From Adam to Noah
Genesis 1:1-3, 5:1-2, 6:8-9
1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
1This is the written account of Adamʼs family line.When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God. 2He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.
8But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. 9This is the account of Noah and his family.Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

1. What’s happening in this time period?
2. What’s God’s story?
3. What does the story say to us or for us?
