Check out Faith Alive Resources
Pentecost is on May 23 this year. As a part of celebrating this important holiday, check out God's Big Pentecost Story: A Celebration for Families and consider sending or delivering a copy to each family in your congregation.
This free, downloadable package from Faith Formation Ministries provides families with a simple, meaningful (and fun!) way to celebrate Pentecost at home. It invites families to "breathe, read, wonder, and pray" together as they prepare to celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the church. Download this family devotional guide and discover other great resources at DwellCurriculum.org/Home.
