We are starting a new unit on the beginnings of the Church. The question for this unit is, “How does the Holy Spirit help Christians? The Holy Spirit comforts us, shows us our sin, and guides us as we live for God’s glory.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be learning about Jesus’ return to heaven and His promised to leave for His followers a special Helper and Guide as we look at Acts 1. We will see that Jesus left earth and returned to heaven, but He did not leave us alone. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with us and help us do God’s work. One day, Jesus will return to make all things new and to rule as Lord over all.
