Sunday, 5 July – Service Content

After kicking off this week’s service with our church Zoom call (link sent out in the WhatsApp group), we can continue with family worship and learning in our homes.

Kids & Teens

The Unstoppable King

Big idea:
Herod imprisons Peter and plans to execute him, but the Church prays and God rescues Peter miraculously. Herod dies, but the church grows.

Aim:
To teach that God is in control and will always win when we try to tell others about Jesus, even when it’s hard or people try to stop us.

The Bible reading for this week is Acts 12:1-24.

Here’s a video for parents to watch as preparation for teaching the younger members of our church this morning:

You can download the printable worksheets here:

And here’s the extended lesson content, including teaching materials, games, videos, and questions.

These are linked in the PDF, but here are a few videos covering the content and story from today’s lesson – they work best if you play the games first:

Memory verse:

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 1:8 (NIV)

Dear Lord Jesus,

We thank you for the past few weeks we have spent in the book of Acts learning about how the church began. We thank you that we can see how powerful you are and that nothing can stop your church from growing here on earth.

We thank you for our church SCC, that we can meet together freely without fear. We know that right now we are not able to meet in person and this makes us sad and we long for the day we will be able to meet together again, but we think of those Christians who are not able to gather together and are persecuted because they are your followers. Please would you help us to daily be praying for these brothers and sisters in Christ, just like the people in Peters day prayed for Him.

We thank you that one day you will put an end to these people’s suffering and that on that day we will, together with them, be able to freely worship you.

Until then, please help us to be thankful for the freedom we have as your people, help us not to waste that freedom and also help us to pray for Christians around the world who are not as fortunate as us.

Thank you that when we pray, we have the great assurance of knowing that you hear our prayers and that you will answer them according to Your will.

Amen
