What were the first Christians like?   

    This series is an in-depth look at the book of Acts. Acts is short for “Acts of the Apostles.” Apostles were those who had witnessed Jesus firsthand and began spreading his word and building the first churches through the Holy Spirit, even though sometimes they faced big challenges.  


    Acts Children's Ministry Curriculum Lesson Overview

    Memory Verse:

    “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you. Then you will tell people about me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria. ” Acts 1:8


    Jesus’ Parting Gift

    Scripture: Acts 2:1-12, 36-40, The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost 

    Jesus had promised that the Holy Spirit would come to be a guide and advocate, but the apostles didn’t know exactly how or when it would happen. When it did, people noticed. 3,000 people were baptized all in one day! 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to guide and encourage us.”

    The First Churches 

    Scripture: Acts 2:42-47, The Believers Share Their Lives Together

    One of the big jobs the apostles had after Jesus left them was to establish the church. The church can mean many things to many people. When Jesus talked about the church, He never meant a building, but a group of people. Even though the early church probably looked a lot different than what we think of as church, there’s still a lot we can learn from it. 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “Church is about the people, not the place.” 

    A Tale of Two Gifts

    Scripture: Acts 4:36-5:4, Ananias and Sapphira

    In these two stories, we see two different kinds of givers. Barnabas sold a field and gave all of the money to the apostles. Ananias and Sapphira, on the other hand, sold some land, but kept some of the money for themselves and lied about it. This sad story illustrates, not that our giving is not about the amount that we give, but the attitude with which we give it.

    Objective: Kids will learn, “God intends for us to give with joy, not out of obligation or to glorify ourselves.”

    The Good News is Official

    Scripture: Acts 8:26-39, Philip and the Man From Ethiopia

    Philip wanted to spread the good news about Jesus wherever he went. The Holy Spirit sent him to an Ethiopian official. Philip answered his question about the Bible and he was baptized right then and there!

    Objective: Kids will learn, “The Holy Spirit can help me share the Good News.”

    Peter’s Wildest Dream

    Scripture: Acts 10:9-19, 34-36, Peter Has a Vision

    Jewish Jesus followers believed that new followers needed to follow Jewish laws to become Christians. God changed Peter’s heart with a vision. Peter understood that Jesus is for everyone. 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “The church is for everyone.”

    Stephen’s Stand

    Scripture: Acts 7:54-60, Stephen Is Killed 

    Stephen was amazing at spreading the good news of Jesus. So good that it made others upset so that they began plotting to get Stephen arrested. Stephen gave a great speech to the Jewish court that made them so angry that they stoned him. 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “the Church is meant to strengthen us to face any persecution.”

    On a Mission

    Scripture: Acts 13:1-5, 49-52 

    The Holy Spirit set apart Barnabas and Saul for a special purpose. Rather than spread the word right where they were, they were sent off to tell others in distant lands. 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “The church is a place to send out missionaries to spread the good news.”

    Tag Team Teaching

    Scripture: Acts 18:1-3, 18-26, Priscilla and Aquila Teach Apollos

    Priscilla and Aquila were a couple that befriended Paul. They worked together making tents. Paul’s influence made them want to share Jesus with others. They befriended Apollos and taught him about Jesus. 

    Objective: Kids will learn, “The church is a place where everyone has a role to play.”


    Each Lesson Includes:

    • Make It Stick! Parent Sheet - so you can let mom and dad know what kids are learning each week and look like a rockstar teacher who's thought of everything.
    • Memory Verse - so that you can make sure kids are getting Scripture in their minds and hearts every single week and you can feel like each lesson was a success even when it seems like 90% of your lesson time is spent saying things like "calm down", "let's be quiet", "hands to yourself!"
    • Skit or Puppet Show - so you have a way to easily connect the lesson with your hands-on and visual learners. No drama team? No problem! Just hand the script to the kids. They'll have a blast and think you're the coolest.
    • Craft Activity - so you can give kids a physical reminder of the Bible lesson (and give yourself an activity to keep them busy until mom and dad come back!)
    • Game - so kids don't leave and say church was BORING! Games are so important to help keep kids engaged. Our large group games always include a "What's The Point" section to help you connect the game to the lesson.
    • Large Group Lesson - so you can present the Bible story in a clear and fun way, which means now you can enjoy Saturday nights instead of stressing over putting a lesson together!
    • Small-Group Discussion - so you can find out who was paying attention and who was talking to their neighbor.  Just kidding, this is a great way for you to build deeper relationships with your kiddos after each lesson, which means you're going to care about them so much you'll cry like a baby when they graduate and go to middle school :(
    • More! - Yes, there is even more than all of that so that you can easily put together the perfect lesson for your ministry each weekend, which means no more agonizing over how to adjust complicated lesson plans.
