Paul Becomes a Missionary — Acts 11, 13-14

Leave a comment

Barnabas was a very accepting person. Of the disciples in Jerusalem, it was he that was the first to believe that Saul had truly changed and had become a Christian. It was he that stood up for Paul, which was Saul’s new name, and helped the other believers in Jerusalem accept Paul, too as a new believer.

When the believers (those who believed in Jesus) heard that many in Cyprus were beginning to believe in Jesus also, they sent Barnabas to help share the good news of the gospel. Barnabas was quick to see the opportunity to get Paul involved and begin his ministry to the Gentiles.

These lessons teach us how we too can tell others the good news of the Gospel. Jesus accepts us. He wants everyone to be in His family of believers!

Paul’s First Missionary Journey

Barnabas and Saul in Antioch — Acts 11

In this presentation our focus is “We work together to serve God.” We see how men from Cyprus, Barnabas, and Saul-Paul worked together to tell the people of Antioch about Jesus. Our object lesson demonstrates the benefit of working together, too. It was here in Antioch that the believers were first called Christians.

Get on board mates! We’re heading to Cyprus and then North across the Mediterranean Sea and inland. Let’s tell others about Jesus! You are God’s workmanship. He created you to do good works which He has prepared for you to do. We’ll play a guessing game and make an origami ship, sing, and learn about Paul’s trip and message along the way. Join in on the fun and action.

Paul and Barnabas continue to Iconium and Lystra — Worship God, the Creator — Acts 14

Paul and Barnabas healed a lame man and the people thought the gods had come down to them. Paul and Barnabas were quick to point out that no, the came to tell them about the true God, our Creator. In this lesson we focus on worshiping God, our Creator and Sustainer. Praise His Holy Name.

I enjoy planning lessons, directing VBS and child care programs. Children's ministry is my passion. God Almighty is my strength and inspiration. For fun I choose hiking, canoeing, camping, cooking, and reading.
