Sunday's Video:

Director Gary Crant is interviewing actors for his next Big Bible Blockbuster movie! Who is it this week?
In this Bible Blockbuster lesson, we are learning about the AMAZING promise that God made to Abraham! When many people were doing their own thing, one man, named Abram was living for God. So God chose to do something amazing for him and through him! When we live for God we also make it possible for God to do great things for us and through us as well!

BONUS VIDEO THIS WEEK: Enjoy this object lesson video from Pastor Karl's good friend Nicki as she talks about sticky promises!

Learn it - Live it!

This weeks Blockbuster Lesson:

God told Abraham is descendants (his kids and all their kids for years to come) would number like the grains of sand on the seashore! In fact, eventually, JESUS would come as one of those descendants, how cool is that!?

Imagine a cup of sand. Guess as to how many grains of sand are in a cup of sand. Write down your guess. Want the answer?  Do you think you could count sand? Even a teaspoon full would be hard! Here's the deal - the average grain of sand is between .3 and .45mm in width, but we can make it easy, and call each particle .5mm. The shapes obviously vary, but let’s pretend they are nice little cubes. A litre is a 100mm cube, that would mean 200 x 200 x 200 grains in a litre. That is 8 million grains of sand. A cup is typically thought of as being 250ml. So, that would mean that a cup would have at least 2 million grains. How big is 2 million? If each grain was a mile long, you could go to the moon and back, four times! A gallon is 16 cups, so a gallon of sand would be 32 million. That is the entire population of Peru or Malaysia. Or a trip to the moon and back, 166 times!
Puts a whole new meaning to the promise God made to Abraham that his offspring would be “like the sands on the seashore.”
Let’s learn another ATTRIBUTE OF GOD.
This week we are learning that our GOD is OMNIPRESENT – meaning God is EVERYWHERE, ALWAYS.
Here is a fun experiment you can do!
• Clear Cup
• Big Bowl
• Paper and Pen
• Pitcher of Water
PREPARATION: You’ll need a clear cup, a clear, big bowl taller than the cup, a piece of paper and pen, and a pitcher of water (or the bowl can already be filled with water).
HERE'S WHAT TO DO: Show the empty cup and ask yourself,  "What is inside the cup?" Of course, you'll think “nothing.” Next, take a small piece of paper and write your name on it. Crumble up the paper and place it in the cup. You’ll need the paper to be big enough that it won’t fall out when you turn the cup upside down. Jam it in the bottom of the cup. Next, get your bowl and fill it with water from the pitcher. Don’t go too high so it doesn’t overflow, but it should be filled enough that the cup can go completely underwater when submerged! Next you are going to completely submerge the cup in the water and hope that the paper doesn’t get wet! Then, turn the cup upside down, and slowly lower it into the bowl being careful to keep it level. The air inside the cup will prevent any water from entering the cup! Instead, the water level will rise instead. You can lower the cup until it is completely covered with water, and then lift it slowly back out and then reach up inside and pull out the paper. Your paper will be completely dry!

THE POINT: We can’t SEE God, but He is everywhere, and when we get surrounded by the floods of this world, His presence protects us! He is everywhere, all the time – and that is why He is worthy of following.
READ: Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God who is near,” declares the Lord, “And not a God far off? “Can a man hide himself in hiding places, so I do not see him?” declares the Lord. “Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the Lord.


What props can you name from movie characters? Thor's Hammer? Wonder Woman's Lasso, etc.  
All movies use props. Sometimes they use real objects, sometimes they make replicas or even miniature or giant fake objects, but all of them help to bring the story to life.
“What prop would I need for the story of David and Goliath?” (a slingshot) “Or Noah and the Ark?” (a squirt gun?) “Or Moses?” (a staff?) “Or Rahab?” (a red ribbon) “Or Samson?” (a jawbone) Add your own.
THE POINT:  In life, we have a lot of stuff. Some of it we need, some of it is just for fun. We have toys, tools, games, sports equipment, musical instruments, school supplies, and so much more. Guess what they all have in common? None of them can we take with us to heaven! That is why our treasure must be in heaven!
READ: Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
