2 2. Amazing events had been taking place in the city of Jerusalem! For one thing there was a big Holiday. Thousands of Jewish people from many regions and countries had come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. This was a time when the Jews came to thank God for the food and grain he had provided for them in the harvest. They also thanked God for the Law and the Ten Commandments. 2

3 3. But that wasn t the most important event that took place in Jerusalem at that time. Everyone was talking about something new. Peter and the other apostles were telling everyone about Jesus and how he was the Son of God. They preached about how Jesus had been killed on a cross but had come back alive. Jesus had gone back to heaven but, before he went, he told the apostles to tell everyone the good news about him. 3

4 4. When people heard about Jesus many of them said they wanted to follow him. They said they were sorry for all of their sins and they were baptised. More and more people decided to obey Jesus and become Christians. 4

5 5. Do you know what a person becomes a part of when they become a Christian? He or she becomes part of the church. Being part of the church means that you follow the church s leader, Jesus. Being part of the church also means you are part of a new family. The other people in the church are your brothers and sisters. All of the people in Jerusalem who became Christians were now part of the church. It was a very big church! On the first day there were almost 3,000 people in it. More and more people obeyed the teachings of Jesus and were added to the church every day. 5

6 Church 6. What do you think a church should be like today? Do you think you can be a good example and help your church be like the church in Jerusalem? 6

7 7. The church listened to the apostles teach about Jesus. Before he went back to heaven Jesus said this to the apostles. Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20, NIV). So that is exactly what the apostles did. They taught people about Jesus every day. Sometimes people needed proof to show that the teachings were really true so the apostles would perform miracles to prove it. The church was filled with awe (Acts 2:43). In our time Jesus teachings are written in the Bible. How can you help your church read the Bible and listen to people teach about Jesus? 7

8 8. The church had fellowship with one another. They met together in the temple courts and in their homes. They weren t even worried that they didn t have a big and beautiful church building. If a Christian brother or sister was hungry or needed clothes then another Christian brother or sister would sell something and use the money to buy what was needed. They shared everything. What can you do when someone in the church needs help? 8

9 9. The church shared meals and shared the Lord s Supper together. The church often ate food together. When the first day of the week came around the church drank grape juice or wine and ate unleavened bread together to remember Jesus in the Lord s Supper. They wanted to remember again and again all of the good things that Jesus had done. What can you do to help when your church shares meals together? What do you do when people are remembering Jesus by taking the Lord s Supper? 9

10 10. The church prayed together. God listens when we talk to him. The church in Jerusalem talked to God. Maybe they asked God to help them be good. Maybe they prayed for their Christian brothers and sisters that were sick. Maybe they prayed that more and more people would follow Jesus. Jesus has loved the church since the very beginning. The people in the first church prayed and the people in the church today can pray. Do you talk to God? What can you pray about for your church? Let s bow our heads now and pray for the church. 10
