Term 3 – Week 1
Big Idea – Jesus ascends to heaven – to the place of rule. (God is now seated at the right hand of the Father and is boss over everything)
Luke 24:44-53, Acts 1:1-11
- The children will know that after the resurrection Jesus ascended to heaven where he is now ruling the world but before left, he promised the Holy Spirit would come to take his place.
- The children will understand that the role of the Spirit was to turn people to Jesus for salvation (i.e. to bring people to faith) and then to enable these believers to tell others about Jesus.
- The children will appreciate that the good news of Jesus is now for all the nations (Acts 1:8. Throughout this series the kids will watch Acts 1:8 unfold)
- Encourage and reassure the children that although it may not sometimes look like it, God is in control because Christ is ruling from heaven.
- Challenge to children to think about whether the have made Jesus their Lord and Saviour.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”Acts 1v8
