Week 9: Pentecost Sunday | Children@Apostles

Welcome to Virtual Church for Pentecost. This is a really important day for us as we celebrate the church’s birthday. This day is a reminder of the first time that the Holy Spirit came to help us. It’s amazing how He still helps us today, so as we celebrate on zoom, let’s remember that because we have the Holy Spirit to help us, we can still see miracles today. Remember you can get extra points by answering the questions and doing the activities here. Have a good week.

Bible Bit
• Read John 10:1-1 and Acts 2:1-47 in your Bible
or
• Watch this video telling the story:

Practice listening to Jesus this week by praying and reading your Bible so that you can understand what he is likely to be saying to you and then putting that into practice.

3 Questions:
• What sound did the people in the room hear?
• Who stood up to talk to the people?
• How many people were “added to the number that day”?

3 things to think about:
• What does it mean for you when you know that if you call on God you will be saved?
• What can you do to help people to know Jesus?
• Which of the fruits of the Spirit do you want more of?
