Family Worship

Sin Entered the World:    

The focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach our family that since Adam and Eve, all people have been sinners. God sent Jesus to rescue us from sin.

Learn the Memory Verse together and say it throughout the week to help your family remember and apply what they have learned.


“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Romans 3:23


Use this time to begin Family Worship Night and have fun!

Make a small bowl of ice cream for each person. Instead of sprinkles and chocolate syrup, top your bowl of ice cream with dirt and dish detergent. Ask if your kids would still want to eat the ice cream. Discuss how the ruined ice cream reminds us that God’s perfect creation was broken by sin. Even before the garden, God had a plan to make His creation new again through Jesus Christ.  Prepare a new bowl of ice cream and enjoy it with your family.

Supplies: ice cream, good toppings, bad toppings

(If you are not eating ice cream, you can talk about everyone's favorite ice cream and what they would think about an ice cream with gross toppings.) 


  • Sing and have fun while worshiping then pray. Take a moment here to thank God for your family and your time together!! 


Watch the Bible story video or read all or parts of Genesis 3 from the Bible:


Use these questions and points to have a conversation with your children about the Bible story. 

  • Did you know that it is against the law for anyone to use a fork to eat fried chicken in Gainesville, Georgia? There is also a law in Arkansas that says alligators cannot be kept in your bathtub! Where are we supposed to keep our alligators then? 
  • What are some silly laws you would make up if you could?
  • These are obviously very silly rules that aren’t necessary. What is the rule God gave Adam and Eve?
  • When God gave Adam and Eve the rule not to eat the fruit of one tree, it wasn’t a silly rule though. God gave that rule so that Adam and Eve could continue to enjoy an amazing relationship with Him. 
  • Even though God had provided everything they needed, Adam and Eve believed the lie that maybe there was something better. So, they ate the fruit and disobeyed God. Instead of finding something better, Adam and Eve lost the perfect world God had created for them. They were cast out of the garden and forced to live in a world broken by sin.  
  • When Adam and Eve broke that rule, sin broke their relationship with God. From that moment on, all people became sinners who are separated from God. We live in a world that is noticeably broken by sin. 
  • Like Adam and Eve, are we guilty of choosing our own way instead of God’s way sometimes?
  • But God still loves us! Who did God send to save sinners?
  • The whole Bible points us to Jesus as the promised Savior who would save sinners. Through faith in Jesus, we can once again have an amazing relationship with God that will last forever and ever.
  • Ever since Adam and Eve sinned, all people have been born as sinners. Sin separates us from God, but God still loves us. God promised a Rescuer would come from Eve’s family. God sent His Son, Jesus, to rescue people from sin and bring them back to God. 

STEP 5. Pray!

  • God, help us to see that Your rules are perfect and for our good. We have all sinned and disobeyed You. Sin has broken our relationship with You, but we thank You for sending Jesus as the Savior we need. Help us to trust in Him so that we can experience the relationship we were created to have with You.
