Windy, With a Chance of Fire

The Church is Sustained and Guided by the Holy Spirit

Life Night Outline

Goal of this Night

The goal of this night is to show the relationship between the Church and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s role in the Church is irreplaceable, and it is the Holy Spirit that continues to inspire the members of the Church today to proclaim the Gospel message of Jesus.

About this night

This night will begin and end with a similar role-play. There will be a dialogue that will go back and forth between a saint in the early Church and a modern day teenager. The purpose of this is to show how the Holy Spirit is still working in the lives of young people in a similar way that He was working in the Early Church. The night will consist of a teaching and small group discussion to emphasize the main points of this topic. The night will conclude with a commissioning ceremony where the teens will have a chance to personally respond to the call of being a disciple for the Church, led by the Holy Spirit.

Parental Notice

This night will explain the Holy Spirit’s active role in the Church and in the lives of each member of the Church. Your child will have an opportunity to be commissioned as an apostle who will continue the mission of the Church with the help of the Holy Spirit. Here are a few questions to discuss with your teen:

  1. When was the Holy Spirit finally revealed to the whole world?
  2. How do we see the Holy Spirit working in the Church?
  3. Were you moved to do anything different after the “commissioning”?


As the teens enter the room have it as if they are entering through a wind tunnel. Have large fans blowing near the entrance as they walk in. If possible, have fake flames attached to the fans. The front of the room will be split among two scenes or rooms. On the left have an old, rustic looking space with an old desk and feather quill pen. On the right set it as if it is a teenager’s bedroom. You will need a bed or couch for them to sit on with a laptop.
