“God’s Rescue Plan: The Birth of the Church” is a 4-week lesson series focusing on the days and weeks following Jesus’ death and resurrection.

"God's Rescue Plan" is a great series to help deepen children's knowledge and understanding of early church history. In these lessons, students will hear Jesus’ final command to His disciples, see Jesus ascending to heaven, feel the coming of the Holy Spirit, and experience the start of the new church.

The primary point we hope children will come to understand through this lesson series is that the church is God’s chosen instrument to take the good news of Jesus around the world. These lessons fall at the end of the gospels and the start of Acts, so work well as a follow up to an Easter series, but are written in such a way that they can be taught at any point of the year.
