Part 1 of A 2-Month Biblical Study Unit on the Book of Acts
(Part of our Crossroads 7th-12th Grade Curriculum)
Suggested Calendar: July 3-July 31
Pentecost is a feast day in the Church where we remember the Holy Spirit descending on the Apostles as they embarked to spread the word of God from one end of the earth to the other. The verse, however, was not meant to be exclusive – we are also charged with being daily witnesses of our Lord and spreading His good news from one end of the earth to the other. This summer, we will take a closer look at the book of Acts and discover what it means to be a daily missionary for Christ. Each day is an opportunity to be on God’s mission in our deeds, words, and interactions with others. In tracing the journeys of St. Paul, we hope our teens adopt his sense of bravery, boldness, and conviction in our Lord Jesus Christ. Hopefully they will see their lives not as their own, but one…on a mission.
"...and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8b
