Eutychus Gets Sleepy

Our story today comes from Acts chapter 20.

The apostle Paul loved to travel around teaching people about Jesus. One time Paul was teaching a crowd of people in a third story room.

Paul talked and talked and talked until it was dark outside, for hours and hours. He talked so long that a boy named Eutychus got very very tired.

Do you ever get tired in church?

Well, let’s see what happened to Eutychus when he got tired in church.

Eutychus fell asleep! When he dozed off he fell out the window – three stories down to the ground!


He was dead.

Paul brought Eutychus back to life. But I bet Eutychus never fell asleep in church again. Or sat near the window.
