Behind all the creation stories there is a basic assumption that God was involved; the “how” of it was
a secondary concern to the original writers.
 
If you’ve used Donald Schmidt’s “for Progressive Christians” study guides with the adults in your congregation and have wanted to include all ages within your church, now you can! Creation: Study and Worship for Progressive Churches makes the vision of whole congregation sharing not only possible, but easy. This all-in-one study and worship resource includes everything a congregation needs to enable children, youth, parents, and grandparents to share together in a five-week study of the biblical stories of creation.
 
In these pages you’ll find:
  • a complete, newly expanded edition of the original adult study guide Creation for Progressive Christians
  • five weeks of learning resources for children, with full lesson outlines and photocopiable resource sheets
  • five weeks of learning resources for youth, with full lesson outlines and photocopiable resource sheets
  • worship resources by Keri Wehlander
 
Donald Schmidt asks, “What did our ancient ancestors want us to understand about the creation of the universe, the divine presence in that creation, and how we might live our lives in response to that?”
 
Now your whole congregation can engage these questions together with this five-week study.
