A 12-week series bringing the children through the Book of Acts (chapters 1-10), with an emphasis on the Holy Spirit working to bring the good news of Jesus to everyone everywhere.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8


GAME: Blanket Name Game
Kids introduce themselves. Divide them into 2 groups and each kid takes turn to represent their group. Hold up a blanket between the 2 representatives. When the blanket drops, the representatives have to shout out each other’s names. Whoever shouts first wins, and the team gets a point.


“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Before Jesus went back to heaven, He told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for God’s gift — the Holy Spirit, which will give the disciples power to be His witness everywhere.

REVIEW LAST LESSON WITH SONG: Peter and John went to pray

STORY (Acts 4)
After the lame man stood up and walked and jumped, everyone was completely amazed and ran to them.

Peter started preaching to them. “Men of Israel, why are you amazed and in wonder? Did you think we did this by our own? It is Jesus — the one you killed when you arrested him and handed over to the Romans. You killed the Author of Life, whom God rose from the dead.

And His name — by faith in His name — has made this man strong and in perfect health! God raised

Jesus up so that He could bless you and turn you from wickedness. So believe in Him!”

Many who heard the word believed!

As Peter and John were speaking to the people, the priests and Sadducees and captain of the temple came to arrest them and put them in prison.

The next day, the rules and elders gathered in Jerusalem and interrogated Peter and John again. “By what power or by what name did you do this?”

Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “This man was healed by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead — by him, this man is standing before you well. This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

The rulers were surprised because they saw how bold Peter and John were. You must remember …

Peter was the coward who ran away when Jesus was arrested and denied him 3 times when someone recognized him. And they were just fishermen, uneducated, common man. The rulers recognized that they had been with Jesus.”

And the man who was lame since birth — he couldn’t walk for more than 40 years! — was standing there beside them, so they couldn’t say anything. They discussed among themselves and decided, “In order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name.”

So they told Peter and John that they could NOT speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot help to speak of what we have seen and heard.”

The rulers couldn’t punish them, so they just threatened them and let them go. Peter and John returned to the disciples, and they all prayed and were filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.


The Name of Jesus gives you the authority and power of Jesus.
It was the name of Jesus — and faith in it — that made the lame man well. It was the name of Jesus and His Holy spirit that gave the disciples boldness.

It was the name of Jesus that they couldn’t stop talking about.

The Name of Jesus is not the ending to your prayer, but the whole reason you can pray!

It is as if Jesus Himself is speaking it.

It is based on His worthiness to receive.

It is like taking from His overflowing account in Heaven (yours is empty).

Do you know Jesus?

Do you believe in Him? Do you have His Holy Spirit in you?

Do you know that if the Holy Spirit is in you, you can use the name of Jesus and speak like Jesus spoke?

Get the kids into small groups to share their prayer needs. Have the children stretch forth their hands to each other and speak Jesus’ name, spirit and life into whatever situation they are facing. Encourage them to believe that Jesus is more powerful than any problem they have.

SONG: No other Name
