Children’s Message: The Comforter
Jesus sends the Holy Spirit
Main Objective: In times of difficulty and trouble, it is a blessing to recognize that God loves us and cares about us no matter what. The goal of this message is to remind children that we can feel comforted by the presence of God. We can’t always hear or see Jesus in our midst, but He has given us the Holy Spirit, who helps and comforts us. We can rejoice in that, and we can also demonstrate Christ’s work in us by loving one another.

Law/Gospel Theme: Jesus not only promises us to be always with us, but He reminds us that His love should be appreciated and shared. We know that we cannot see God with our eyes, but through the comfort of the Holy Spirit we are given a way to have His presence near.
