In Acts 6 & 7, we learn about Stephen and his service in the early church. Stephen was one of the first deacons (servants) and was the first martyr. His story will help kids understand that faith has a cost but the presence of Jesus always gives courage.
Stephen was a leader in the early church. We read about him in the Book of Acts. He was a servant and witness to Jesus, but when the Jewish leadership became angry with him, they stoned him. Paul was among those who wanted him dead.
