We are continuing our 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 how the disciples experienced the coming of the promised Holy Spirit as we look at the first part of Acts 2. We will see that God kept His promise to send the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit’s help, Jesus’ disciples could begin their work to share the gospel with the entire world. God gives the Holy Spirit to everyone who trusts in Jesus as Lord and Savior. The faithfulness of Christ’s people on the day of Pentecost led thousands to come to faith. May we, too, be just as eager to live on mission and communicate the gospel just as faithfully.
