Let's PRAISE GOD
Today is Pentecost Sunday, we learnt about this last week too but because it’s such a super special day I wanted to do a double. Today we celebrate that when Jesus was taken to heaven he didn’t leave us on our own, but gave us his helper, the Holy Spirit. For our warm-up today I’m going to see how helpful you guys are.
Answer these questions as honestly as you dare ;P
When was the last time you helped someone?
What is your favourite job around the house?
What is your worst job?
Who is the most helpful person you know?
When was the last time you tidied your room?
What’s the best thing about being helpful?
Can you name a character on tv/film who is helpful?
When might we need help?
TIME TO WATCH
Check these videos out!
We can read about Pentecost in Acts 2.
Can you read this together?
What do you think?
What happened to the believers that day?
What did the crowd think when they heard the believers?
What will happen to all those who call on the name of the lord? (v21)
What does the Holy Spirit help us to do?
With an adult can you light a candle (or 2) and pray.
Thank you God that you didn’t leave us on our own but that you gave us the Holy Spirit to live inside of each one of us.
Thank you for filling us with God dreams and helping us each and every day to become more like Jesus. We are sorry when we don’t listen to you and make mistakes, forgive us and help us to let go. Help us to trust you every day, knowing that
you have exciting plans for our lives. Fill us with your power today & change us from the inside out.
Let's get busy
Today we have heard about how the Holy Spirit came down with wind & fire. My challenge is for you to make a kite, paper aeroplane or pinwheel/windmill which can be moved in the wind. Or how about drawing something that gives off fire? A bonfire, fireworks or candle perhaps?
If your adult agrees, how about making a mini campfire in the garden this week and melting marshmallows? As you look at the fire, talk about what difference Jesus makes in your life every day. How can we trust him more?
