LESSON SIXTEEN 12/07/2020
Hi Parents & Carers,
Welcome to Kidzone online. Today’s lesson is called “Cement”. Our church is made up of many different people from many walks of life and different backgrounds. The miracle of the Holy Spirit is how it unites us all, as different as we may be, into the church. When we are united by the Holy Spirit, we can do greater things than we can ever do on our own. Pray that God will unite not only our church, but all churches so we can reach the world for Jesus.
Bottom Line: The Holy Spirit brings God’s people together.
Objective: Kids will learn that God’s Holy Spirit is the cement that holds the Church together, and it is who God put in our hearts to keep us connected to Him.
Memory Verse: “If the Lord doesn’t build a house, the work of the builders is useless.” Psalm 127:1a (NIrV)
Scripture to read: Acts 2:1-14, 38-47, Many Are Saved
Summary: Cement is made from special rock, clay, water and other materials all joined together in a cement mixer. The crowd at Pentecost was filled with many different people from different places. But when Peter shared the good news of Jesus, many of them believed. God mixed them all together to create the first church.
Activity: Have the kids make some paper dolls, then cut the dolls apart to separate them. Cut out a circle labelled “Holy Spirit,” and connect all the dolls to that circle with glue to show how the Holy Spirit connects and unites us! There are quite a few free templates on the internet, just search “Free paper doll template”. Alternatively you can use the one we have provided.
Make this week’s lesson real: Take another walk around the house. Where do you see cement? What other materials do you see holding your home together? Ask your kids how God uses the Holy Spirit to make believers stick together.
Here are some great discussion starters:
- What happened when the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost?
- How did the Holy Spirit bring the early church together?
- How can the Holy Spirit unite our church?
Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse.
Send your Holy Spirit to unite us as a church! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thank you for your support and may God bless you all!
