You’ll need colored craft sand, funnels, clear plastic bottles with lids, star stickers, and alphabet stickers.
Distribute the bottles and funnels. Say: God promised Abraham something amazing. Read aloud Genesis 22:17-18. Have kids create “generations” by adding layers of colored sand in their bottles with the funnels.
Ask: What do you think God’s promise to Abraham meant? What kind of promise would you like God to give you for your grandchildren?
Have kids each fill a bottle, tightly replace the lid, and place stickers to spell “faith” on the bottle. Say: God kept his promise! Read aloud Hebrews 11:8-12. Ask: Why do you think Abraham’s faith was important for God to keep his promise?
Say: God kept his promise to Abraham, and he’ll keep his promises to you, too.
Read aloud Hebrews 11:1, 6.
