I Believe/I Can

Activity Objective

To encourage the children to think about how their belief in God can motivate them to care for the world

Lesson Outcome

The children will share with one another practical ways they can act on God's invitation to care for his creation.


  • Remind the children that in this session they expressed their belief in God, the Creator of our world and everything in it. Invite them to share with a partner some ways they can be God's helpers because of their belief.
  • Write the phrases "I believe" and "I can" on the board.
  • Have children sit with partners, facing each other. Ask them to take turns sharing practical ideas about their beliefs and actions using these phrases. (Examples: I believe God created the ponds and streams; I can help keep them clean by not littering them with garbage. I believe God created all of us; I can help my elderly neighbor).
  • Conclude the activity when everyone has had a chance to share one or two ideas. Remind the children that these are everyday things they can do now to live their belief in God.
