Apex Kids @ Home: The Ascension

Hey Families!
We believe that discipleship in the home is such a prominent teaching throughout the Scriptures and the family is central in passing along the faith. Parents are called to impress the hearts of their children with the love for God. This begins with family worship – talking as a family about God and His Word.
This guide is to help do just that. Let me introduce the Apex Kids @ Home: A Lesson Preview This guide provides a simple outline and discussion points for NEXT WEEK’S lesson for 45&K and KidLife (1st-5th grade). Parents, we would like you to be the first to engage your kids in teaching and hearing God’s Word. At Apex, we want to equip with the necessary tools to begin or continue these discussions at home.
For more in depth discussion: The book we use is The Gospel Story Bible. The devotional book for the New Testament section of the GSB is Old Story New.

"The Ascension"

Read Together

Acts 1:1-11 or Story 121 in The Gospel Story Bible

Talk Together

What is the Holy Spirit? (It is the "Helper" that Jesus promised in John 14. It's purpose is to call us to God Himself. It teaches us and helps us remember everything about God. See John 14 or Story 112 to teach this further.)

Where was Jesus going? (He was going home to be with His Father, God.)

What did the two white-robed men tell the disciples about Jesus leaving? (The angels said, "Men of Galilee, why do you look to the sky? Jesus will come back and in the same way He left. He will return.")

Pray Together

Just like the disciples did, take time to pray and worship God together. Help your children by showing them what praising God looks like.
