    Thanking you for this wonderful group of resouses. I was called upon at 9:00 P.M. the evening before to lead the children’s class on Sunday morning. With no material to prepare on such short notice, the availability of this webpage supplied me with a successful lesson plan. Thank you. Caroline

    Hi there,

    These lessons on the Holy Spirit is awesome. At our church we have youth nights on Fridays.

    We have decided to do a separate lesson every time for the Primary School kids.

    I am going to use these lesson for that. I would like to thank you for constructing such well organized lessons and activities.

    I would sure like it if you had lessons constructed like this for older youth between the ages of 14 and 18. If you have something like this for these ages I will really like it if you could inform me.

    Thanks again for your site, it’s really awesome.

    Regards

    Johanna

    This lesson has helped me to teach our children and youth. We have children that have never been to church before that have been coming for about 8 months now and they have been confused. But with this lesson they are understanding more and are excited about learning more now. Thanks

  36. Kathy Nevin says

    Thank you for being here. I went to bed praying for guidance of what to teach in the coming days to my class. Our church has been in financial crises with the economy the way it is, and like many have had to cut corners. This has meant that we have cutout ordering quarterly lesson plans for the past year.

    I wanted something fresh to share the word of God with my students and with my fellow teachers. Thank you for your ministry.
    Kathy
