Today is the day we celebrate Jesus' return to his Father in Heaven. It is called his Ascension Sunday.
Remember, Jesus died on the cross and then rose from the dead. He then lived for 40 days on Earth. The last two stories we looked at were from these 40 days: the 'Road to Emmaus' and 'Doubting Thomas'. Today our story tells us about Jesus' return to his Father in heaven.
The following link shows Jesus' ascension using rocks.
Today's song is also about the ascension of Jesus. Enjoy the sing-along.
Today we begin a new memory verse. It is what Jesus told his disciples to do before he returned to his Father in heaven. Learn it the way you find easiest to remember our memory verses.
"Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples." Matthew 28:19a

Today, Ascension Sunday, and the next two Sundays, Pentecost and Trinity Sunday, are important days in our church calendar which conclude the season of Easter.
On Easter Sunday we heard that Jesus rose from the dead, not as a ghost but as a real person. Jesus revealed his 'risen self' to His disciples and many others for 40 days. He then returned to Jerusalem with His disciples and ascended into Heaven. Let's recap those 40 days with the following story link.
Let's have another look at the Ascension story. The following link will tell the story with sand pictures.
The following hymn,'Go Make Of All Disciples', is often sung at Ascension and Pentecost. It reminds us of Jesus' command to his disciples to teach everyone what he had taught them.
- "You will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world."(Acts 1:8).
- ".... Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptise them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you. ..." (Matthew 28:18-20)
