Peter, John, and the Lame Beggar
In Acts 3:1-19 Peter and John see a lame man by the temple gate when they were on their way to pray. The man asks for money, but Peter heals the man in the name of Jesus. Peter tells the people that they killed Jesus, but God knew all along it would happen. He tells the people to turn from their sins. When you read this story, discuss how we need to turn from our sins and believe and Jesus. And once we have done that, we can tell others about Jesus. You can also discuss how God can do anything. He still heals people and works in our lives, although it usually looks a little different than it did with the disciples.
This is the "reader" version of Peter, John, and the Lame Beggar. It is just right for small hands and for making copies.

On the Peter, John, and the Lame Beggar activity page, children fill in blanks in the Bible story summary and then find those words in a word search. On the other side children decode words and use them in a secret message.
