Pentecost Ideas for Your Family...
Watch this video together:
Pentecost is a day of celebration. Make a birthday cake complete with candles and celebrate the birth of the church growing throughout the world.
Read the story of the first Pentecost in the Bible in Acts 2:1-47 or in a children's Bible.
On Pentecost we remember the wind of the Holy Spirit entering our hearts. Go outside and fly a kite. We can't see the wind moving the kite, but we can feel it. We can't see the Holy Spirit, but we can feel it in our hearts. And we can see the work that God does through the Holy Spirit.
Red is the color of Pentecost Day. Have a contest to see who can find the most red things around your house. Make a list or draw pictures of what you see.
Green is the color for the rest of the long season of Pentecost throughout the summer. Green is for growth. We grow in Christ by reading stories about Jesus' teaching, preaching, and healing. You can read stories about Jesus all summer long. And look for green, growing things to remind you to grow in your faith.
