Children's Sermon for Pentecost
The Power of God Comes to Us | John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15
The Point: God sends us the power of the Holy Spirit that we might live as children of God.

The Lesson:  Welcome, children.  I am thankful that you came up to share with me.

Today is a special Sunday in the life of our church.  We celebrate Jesus sending us the gift of the Holy Spirit.  In the gift of God's Spirit, we have the power to understand and grow as children of God.  God's Spirit helps us to know Jesus and to receive his guidance for our lives.

The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit came like a  great wind that filled the house where the followers of Jesus were.  In the gift of the Spirit they were filled with understanding and began to tell everyone about the good news in Jesus: that Jesus is our Savior and unites us as God's family.... click here for the rest of the children's sermon
