God’s Promise to Abram

Hi all! Today’s lesson is from Genesis 15 and 18. Last year’s lessons can be found HERE and HERE. (This is a much simpler version of our two stories from last year…so this may be better for smaller toddlers/preschoolers whereas last year could be better for slightly older preschoolers/kids.)

So Abram and Sarai were very very old and wanted to have children…but they thought they were too old. One day God told Abram he WOULD have many many children and grandchildren…as many as the stars in the sky!

Have you ever looked out at night time and tried to count all the stars? It’s a LOT!

Abram believed God and God gave him a new name: Abraham: which means “father to many.” He also gave Sarai a new name: Sarah. Sarai means quarrelsome…like fighting a lot. Sarah means princess.

Sarah laughed when she found out God’s plan. She couldn’t believe that SHE could have a baby being so old?! But NOTHING is too hard for God. You can be sure God DID keep His promise to Abraham and Sarah.

We can always trust God. He can do ANYTHING. Nothing is too hard for God.

For our craft today we cut sponges in star shapes. Then we dipped them in glue and stamped black pieces of paper with the glue and then added glitter to represent the stars in the sky.

Our text reads: Nothing is too hard for God! Genesis 18
