Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today, we are learning about Jesus' promise to us.
Lesson Video: "God is with Us"
Alternate Video: "Lydia"
Ask: Who can tell me what a promise is? (It's when we say we'll do something and really do it). When you make a promise, do you keep it? ... Do you think God keeps all His promises?
Say: Jesus promised that He would send His Holy Spirit to be with us. Did He keep that promise? (Yes). We'll learn more about that next week. But today, we need to remember that the Holy Spirit lives in us to help us be more like Jesus. We can practice listening to the Holy Spirit by listening to what Jesus said and doing what He told us to do.
Song for Kids: Peace Like A River
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.
