Lesson Plans That Work: Seventh Sunday of Easter

lptwWe are currently in Easter, Year A. For the Easter Season, readings from the Acts of the Apostles take the place of Old Testament Readings.

Gospel Lesson: That We May All Be One
Scripture: John 17:1-11

That we all may be one: Okay, probably not gathered into one agreed-upon building or even one way of worship. We are all one as God’s love flows out over ALL of us. We are all one as each of us sees the face of Jesus in each person we encounter. Love is who God is, and therefore, what God does. Each of us is part of this one.

Acts of the Apostles: Power and Authority
Scripture: Acts 1:6-14

In this reading, Jesus appears to his disciples for forty days after his resurrection. Jesus asks his disciples to prepare for the coming of the Holy Spirit, to be sent during Pentecost, and to also prepare for their mission in the world.

About Lesson Plans that Work

Lesson Plans that Work is a part of the Episcopal Digital Network that hosts free curriculum and resources that are published online by The Episcopal Church.

Each week, you will find lesson plans for young children (non-readers), older children (grade school age children), and adults. Inter-generational lesson plans are available at the beginning of each season and for many major feast days throughout the liturgical year. In addition to these weekly lesson plans, you can find special lesson plans that celebrate saints, events, or commemorations throughout the year.

These lesson plans can be used as written, or they are easy to adapt to reflect the context of your congregation’s children’s program.

To help you use Lesson Plans that work, we have set up various calendars within each season. The Liturgical Calendar shows the current year and the lessons that fall on each Sunday. The Comprehensive Index provides a chart of each Sunday in each liturgical year. Use the “Search this Website” on the top right of the page to search for keywords, seasons, and more.
