Holy spirit discover children's lessons

Holy Spirit Discovery for Kids is an eight-lesson resource for teaching key concepts about the person and work of the Holy Spirit that was created in 2007 by The Foursquare Church. Several creative teaching methods are included with each lesson to help you plan a teaching session that connects kids ages 9-11 years old with the truth from the Bible.

Before you end your teaching session, be sure to allow time for personal ministry and prayer as you encourage kids to receive more of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Talk to your pastor or children’s leader about how to do this most effectively. It is best to discuss your approach ahead of time so everyone understands how the teaching of this subject will impact the lives of the kids you teach.
