Midtown VBS Day 2: Firecracker the Parrot!

Congratulations to the 3rd grade class who named our mascot parrot Firecracker today!  We’re having a really great week so far!

On Friday of this week, we want to invite all of our parents back in the afternoon from 11:45 until 12:30. for our closing ceremony. The kids will be singing all of the music they have learned this week, and preschool classrooms will be open for parents to come and pick up all of the crafts and artwork that the kids made this week. We hope to see you then!

Last Sunday: Jesus Promises

This week, Sojourn’s kids studied studied John 14: 15-31. We learned that:

  • Jesus promised to give the Holy Spirit to his followers as a helper.
  • The Holy Spirit would comfort them and give them peace after Jesus left.
  • The Holy Spirit would remind them about everything Jesus said.

Midtown VBS Day 1: Helping the Homeless

Did you know that over 9,000 people in Louisville are homeless each year–including children? This week, SojournKids will be partnering with the Jeff Street Baptist Homeless Center to help those who are homeless in our community. We will be collecting a missions offering each day, and we will be taking the following donations.

  • Deoderant
  • Lotion
  • Razors (multi-blade, please)
  • Toilet Paper
  • Washcloths
  • Brushes and Combs
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Creamer
  • Laundry Detergent

Because Jesus loves us perfectly when we hurt, we help other people who hurt. Take some time this week to gather a few of these items and place them in the collection bins during morning registration.

Dads and Disabilities

Here are some super encouraging resources from Justin Taylor about being a father of children with disabilities. He includes links to resources from Desiring God ministries and others. Whether or not this is your situation, these are encouraging are good reflections for Father’s Day.
