Kids love dinosaurs! Sadly, dinosaurs are used extensively as evidence or even “proof” that God’s Word is unreliable and outdated. But dinosaurs are remarkable evidence that God knows everything and we can trust His Word.
Use this lesson to help children understand that they can fully trust God’s Word and respond to His love by believing in His Son as their Savior.
