Family Bible time for the week of April 26-May 2
Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!
Jesus Ascends to Heaven
Have you ever had to say goodbye to a friend or family member because you or they moved away? How did you feel?
Jesus was alive! He had risen from the dead! But now that His work on earth was done, it was time for Him to return to His Father in heaven. Jesus wouldn't leave His disciples alone, however---He would send the Holy Spirit to help them. He promised to always be with His disciples. That promise is for you and me too!
