The Day When God Made Church:
A Child's First Book About Pentecost
Children love birthday parties. This is a book - a first if its kind - to help kids understand and celebrate the birthday of the Church.
The Day When God Made Church is the story of Pentecost and how the Holy Spirit shaped, and continues to shape, who we are as God's Church. Children will learn the story of Pentecost: the sights, sounds, and events of that miraculous day described in the Book of Acts. They will also discover who the Holy Spirit is and how God calls each of us to follow Jesus.
At the end, parents, educators, ministers will discover fresh ways to celebrate Pentecost with children in their own churches and families.

"Readers and listeners of all ages will discover much to stimulate their understanding of Pentecost through this theologically grounded book. Its engaging qualities and vivid images rhythmically connects children to the movement of The Holy Spirit, and the birth of the Church. Rebekah seamlessly helps children understand this sometimes difficult celebration in the liturgical year." —Melanie C. Gordon, Director of Ministry with Children, Discipleship Ministries of the United Methodist Church
