A super cool Magic Trick / Object Lesson that illustrates why sometimes God says no to our plans. He has a bigger plan! THE EFFECT: You show a piece of paper that says MY PLAN on it and describe how sometimes you go to God with YOUR PLAN and God rejects it! You then RIP UP THE PAPER in front of the kids. But as you talk about how sometimes God rejects our plan because He has a bigger better plan, you slowly unfold the ripped up paper to reveal a completely restored LARGER paper with no tears any more that says GOD’S PLAN! It is the classic Torn and Restored Paper illusion with a new application! PRESENTATION VIDEO: Watch the explanation video and download templates to do the illusion at: Kidology.org/myplangodsplan
Introducing Pastor Karl’s Bedtime Stories – A NEW podcast for kids from Pastor Karl Bastian! Kids can’t come to church? No worries! Now Pastor Karl brings his stories to them in his new podcast created just for kids! Pastor Karl loves to tell stories. Sometimes they are a story from the Bible. Sometimes they are a parable that teaches something from the Bible. Often he shares a true story from his own life or tells a story he heard and wants to pass along. He might even invite some of his silly friends on to the show to tell one of their stories. You never know what kind of story it will be, but you can know it will be wholesome, fun, and educational. Pastor Karl’s Bedtime Stories are available on Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts, or just ask Alexa to play it for you!
