Engage with the Christmas Joy Offering during COVID-19

Lesson Plan for Younger Children

During this lesson, children grades K-4 will:

  • Be able to place the story of Pentecost in context of the Biblical story (New Testament, after Jesus’ death and resurrection).
  • Learn about the ways that the Pentecost offering supports ministries for young people, and that the Pentecost offering is one of the four Special Offerings of our church.
  • Start to connect God’s teaching and care for us with our call to teach and help care for others.
