Join the disciples as Jesus ascends to heaven, gives them a promise and a charge. Acts 1:1-11, Luke 24:44-53, Mark 16:9-20
Responses and Activities for Ascension Day:
• plan an outdoor picnic, ideally on a hilltop, and imagine and discuss what it would have been like to be with Jesus when He ascended to heaven.
• cloud gazing – lay in the grass and watch the clouds, wonder what it was like when Jesus ascended and imagine what it could be like when Jesus returns.
• make an Ascension Day cake – lots of meringue or white icing to resemble Jesus ascension into the clouds
• make art-your imagination is the limit -watercolors, chalk, clay, cotton ball cloud creations
• look at a globe or map and at all the places Jesus sends his disciples to be witnesses.
• count to 40
