Learning Focus 1 - Jesus Picks His Twelve Apostles
LEARNING FOCUS 1
Jesus chooses people to work with him.
Jesus proclaimed God the Father’s love by what he said and did. People who followed Jesus Christ in the early Church began to be called Christians. They formed a Christian community called the Church. At the beginning of his ministry on earth, Jesus chose certain people to follow him and share in his work. They were to be apostles and would be sent out to spread the Good News.
Within the final powerpoint you can share with your child the story from God’s Story 3 page 90.
I Have Chosen You, Mark 3: 13-19 – God chooses people to serve him today through their parish communities.
I suggest you watch the short videos first then follow the power-points in order.
The final powerpoint has some interactive activities and a diary task to be completed in your child's workbook.
