God's Supply Chain


Previous Activity Next Activity

Businesses have used the supply chain idea for many years! Let's move it to the Sunday School and apply it to God who is the ultimate supplier of everything!
God's Supply Chain

 

God’s Supply Chain to You
Thank God for all things
How God provides it all

Not all children make the mental bridge that God is the source of all things - even technological things. This activity gets children understanding how it all works and gets to the "roots".
(If you buy something at K-Mart or Wal-Mart, where do you suppose they get it from?)

Here is one of our examples of how God is the source of everything we have:

A turkey or chicken you're going to have for dinner:
GOD > Made the first chicken and turkey (blank link 1) > the farmer provides a place for chickens and turkeys to grow and have families (blank link 2) > the butcher kills and cleans the chicken or turkey and prepares it for the grocery store (blank link 3) > The store sells it to you or your mom
.

Two other examples are provided, PLUS you can come up with several topics or items and re-create their chain. Some chains are longer than others -- the chain back to God for a computer would go all the way back to petroleum to make the plastic case it come in and gold from mines deep in the ground for some of the connectors.

That's why we thank God for EVERYTHING!
No matter what you can think of, it begins with what God created. We can only manipulate it, heat it, cool it, bend it, and change it, combine it, and so on.
