Hi Journey Kids parents!
Jesus promised to be with us always – to the very end of time. But He ascended into Heaven. He’s no longer physically present on earth. Even though that sounds like bad news, Jesus said it’s actually really good news because He would send His Holy Spirit to comfort us, to guide us, and to gift us for the purpose of His mission. And He sent His Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This weekend we’re diving into that incredible story and what it means for our lives today.
When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.
Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story: The Pentecost
Big Idea: God gives us the Holy Spirit to help us follow Jesus.
Memory Verse: “But the Father will send the Friend in my name to help you. The Friend is the Holy Spirit.” John 14:26 (NIrV)
After the video lesson, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
Jesus still gives His Holy Spirit to everyone who believes in Him. Isn’t that incredible news? The very presence of God is with you wherever you go and whatever you do. He has never been nearer to His people. I pray that this week you would experience that presence.
