Use this Holy Spirit Sunday School lesson during the Fall season to show kids that God's Holy Spirit helps us get through anything!
Needed: A yearly calendar with monthly pages.
Show the children your calendar and ask, What month is it?
Do you think this is the time of year when we plant crops or when we harvest crops? Harvesting.
And why do we harvest crops? To eat them!
if we didn't have any crops to harvest? What if bugs came through all
our farm fields and ate all the food before we could harvest it? Then
what would happen to us? We might go hungry!
through the calendar and say, You know, sometimes we have a good harvest
and sometimes something happens to give us a not so good harvest. Just
like in life; sometimes we're having a great time and everything is
going good, and sometimes things don't go very well for us.
But do you know what stays the same no matter what?
love for us. God always loves us, no matter if things are going good or
if they're going bad. And He is always with us. He's given us His Holy
Spirit to live inside of us and to help us in the good times and the bad
(Read Joel 2:23-29.)
matter what is happening in our life, God's Spirit is always with us to
help us. God's Holy Spirit inside of us can make us strong and brave and
ready to face any problems we have and do anything we have to do.
Let's pray about that.
prayer: Father God, we thank You for giving us Your Holy Spirit and for
always being with us, in the good times and in the bad times, to help
us and to make us strong for You. In Jesus' name, and through the power
of the Holy Spirit we pray. Amen.
