Elementary Sunday School Lesson: God Can Do All Things

Use this free elementary Sunday school lesson to help third  and fourth graders learn that God can do all things! Find more great Sunday school lessons to help kids grow in their faith.

 1. Mix It Up

In a large bowl, pour 1 quart of half-and-half and a dash of salt. Mix it up, then ask:

  • Does this look like butter to you? Why or why not?
  • Do you believe you can make this into butter? Why or why not?

Give each child a clean baby food jar and lid. Fill each child’s jar half-full with the mixture. Have children each tightly close their lid on their jar and shake the mixture. Tell kids to keep shaking throughout the lesson until their mixture becomes butter.

Say: Some of you may think it’s impossible for this mixture to become butter. But you’re going to see the mixture change. God can do the impossible too. Every day, God is working miracles and doing the impossible to change things.


  • Do you know of any miracles God has done? Explain.

2. Tiny Faith

Say: Today’s lesson is about faith and what it means. What does “faith” mean to you? How much faith does it take to do the impossible?

Display a basketball, a baseball, a ping-pong ball, and a mustard seed on a table. Ask:

  • If your faith was as big as one of these balls, which size ball would you want your faith to be?

Have kids stand by the ball they’d most want their faith to be like.

Then read aloud Matthew 17:14-20. Ask:

  • How much faith does it take to do the impossible?
  • What’s an impossible thing in your life that you need God’s help with?

Have children each write that situation on a 3X5 card and then use transparent tape to tape a mustard seed to their card. Say: It doesn’t take much faith to believe God can do the impossible. Let’s ask God to do the impossible in our impossible situations.

Form groups of three. Have children pray for one another’s situations.

3. Faith Mural

Tape large pieces of butcher paper to the wall. Form groups of three, then give groups markers and a Bible. Have groups each read Hebrews 11 and draw a different faith story depicted in this chapter.

4. Bread of Life

Bring out a loaf of French bread. Break the loaf into pieces. Say: Just as it took time for you to make your butter, sometimes it takes time to see God work miracles in our lives. Don’t give up believing. Keep believing, just as you kept shaking your jar. And you’ll enjoy the results of your faith just as we’re going to enjoy the results of your perseverance.

Give kids blunt knives to spread their butter on the bread and let them enjoy their snacks.
