For Kids: Ascension
Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today, we are learning about Jesus' promise to us.
Lesson Video: "Jesus' Ascension"
Ask: How does it make you feel when you think of Jesus returning to Heaven? Do you miss Him? Do you wish He would come back? Why do you think Jesus left us?
Say: Sometimes, it makes me really sad that I can't see Jesus. But, I remember that He gave us His Holy Spirit to help us do what He did and follow His way. We'll learn more about that next week. This week, let's think of some ways we can be more like Jesus...(talk about ways to love, be thankful, be kind, be helpful)
Song for Kids: Sing for Joy
Activity Sheets or Play
After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play something that fits with the lesson).
End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.
