Theme:God is honored when we stand up for Him.
Goal:Children will stand up for God in their worship.
Text:Acts 6:8-7:60
Summary:Stephen did great miracles among the people, but opposition rose against him from the Jews. They persuaded some people to lie and accuse Stephen of blasphemy. He was arrested and taken before the Sanhedrin. After the parade of false witnesses, Stephen was allowed to speak. He summarized the history of Israel: Abraham moving to Canaan, God’s promise to him, the birth of Isaac, Jacob, the twelve patriarchs, Joseph being sold to Egypt, Jacob’s family moving to Egypt to avoid famine, slavery in Egypt, Moses’ birth, life and leading the people from Egypt, idolatry with the golden calf, and the Tabernacle of God. He accused the Jews of being stubborn, always persecuting God’s prophets. They were furious at this, but when Stephen saw a vision of heaven, with Jesus at the right hand of God, they rushed at him and stoned him. Even during this, Stephen prayed for their forgiveness.

Theme:God wants us to love one another.
Goal:Children will show devotion to God by thinking about ways to be instruments of God’s love.
Text:Psalm 23; Acts 2:42-47
Summary:David’s psalm thanked God for leading him, guiding him, and comforting him even with enemies and difficulties around. He could rely on God’s firm protection. God’s provision, even in hard times, was overflowing. David was given goodness and love and knew that he would spend eternity with God. In Acts, the early church devoted themselves to teaching, fellowship and prayer. They sold possessions to help those in need. They met together frequently, in the Temple courts and in homes eating. And the Lord added to their numbers.
Discussion Starters:What can you do to show love to others, like the early church did long ago?
Why does God deserve our whole-hearted devotion?
Why should we express this devotion throughout the week instead of just on Sundays?
