Pentecost is one of the lesser celebrated holy days in the Christian year. The average youth group celebrates Christmas and Easter as the main events of the Christian year. Yet Pentecost and Trinity Sunday round out the powerful journey of through the Gospel that the church walks through each year. So we’re giving away these free resources (we’ve thrown in Trinity Sunday as a bonus!) to help youth workers show how important these aspects of the Christian year are in teaching the whole gospel of Jesus Christ to teenagers.
These resources come from The Lectionary small group series. The Lectionary is a series of Bible studies which follow the passages of scripture form the Lectionary calendar. It allows you to teach through the various seasons of the Christian year (Advent, Christmas Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, etc.) in order to lead teenagers into a deep awareness of living out the Gospel story each day. Each lesson in the Lectionary curriculum teaches the theme that arises from all of the Sunday scripture passages from the Revised Common Lectionary. This resource and others are included in the BarefootOnline.com subscription.

The Work of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit has been sent to us to be our present Counselor, encourager, and comforter in the world. The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth, shows us the future, brings glory to Christ Jesus, and helps us in our distress.
Have I received the present help that Jesus sent for us when He returned to heaven? What is the work of the Spirit in our daily lives?
