Sojourn Kids on April 18, 2021
Children of God
First off, we will be hosting Sojourn Kids this week. This week Floyd County has returned to yellow per the states color coded map which outlines the severity of a counties COVID-19 outbreak indicating we are in a moderate outbreak. Per our written protocols, this would usually mean that we shut kids down this week. However, the reason that the county went yellow was a 0.4% rise in positivity even though overall case numbers went down. Because of the slow rise and the lower case numbers, we are not shutting down for this week though we will keep on eye on the numbers. Our basic protocols will continue which are masks for 3 and up, social distancing, and limited classrooms sizes. You can see the our full protocols inn our Reopening Plan. While we have enough physical space to host everyone who would want to come, we have several openings for teachers and assistants. If you would like to serve, you can sign up here.
For those who are remaining at home, Chuck Heeke will be going live on Facebook at 10:30 AM Sunday for your kids to watch and engage with. Tune in, ask questions or make comments, and enjoy storytime with your teachers! You can see the videos here on our SojournKids Facebook page.
This week our lesson is about how those who believe in Jesus are Children of God (technical difficulties are occurring right now but the lesson will be uploaded soon).
2's and 3's:
- Retell the story in your own words, acting out key parts with your child's stuffed animals and toys.
- Practice the big picture question together: Who changes us? The Holy Spirit changes us to be like Jesus for God’s glory.
- Volunteer as a family to babysit for a couple in your church with young children.
4's, K, 1st:
- Have them retell the story to you, look up the scripture in the Bible and take turns reading sections.
- As a family, choose a neighbor to show that you care, just like Jesus cares for us.
- Ask “How do we become children of God?"
