Last Sunday: At the Throne

This week in SojournKids, we studied Revelation 7:9-17.  We learned that:

  • God keeps His promises
  • God will save people from every people, language, and nation.
  • All peoples will praise God, because He saves from suffering and sin.

The princess is cursed, with death hanging over her head from the day she’s born. When death finally stings her, a prince must battle against the powers of hell to rescue her.

Last Sunday: Loving One Another

This week in SojournKids, our passage was 1 John 3:11-18.  We learned that:

  • Jesus showed us love by laying down his life.
  • Since God loved us, we ought to love one another.
  • True love changes the way we speak and act toward one another.
