Their work will focus on discipling and equipping our Journey community to engage culture with the truth of Jesus from our neighborhoods to the nations. JOURNEY KIDS PROMOTION SUNDAY This next Sunday, August 12, will be Promotion Sunday. Our toddlers who have turned three and a half and are also potty trained will be moving up to the preschool room, new kindergartners will move to the younger elementary room, and new 3rd graders will be in the older elementary room. We're looking forward to helping your child with the transition to their new rooms! If you have any questions about promotions or which room your child should be in please email Laura Lane. UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum's new cycle starts this September, and we want you to be prepared to work with the upcoming changes and modifications. If you are a current or new Journey Kids elementary volunteer, please attend one of the trainings listed. Child care will be available. REGISTER TODAY MESNIER SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES Mesnier Primary School is located directly across the street from our church, which means it is a great place for us to help out and be involved in our community. Tomorrow, August 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., they'll be packing school backpacks for about 200 children in need who are in grades K-8 in the Affton School District. If you're available to help pack backpacks with supplies, you can go to the school during that time frame. We are also helping the teachers with supplies at Mesnier School and are coordinating with the teachers and administrators on the supplies they need. If you're interested in donating items for the teachers, please contact Laura Lane. THIRD THURSDAY WORSHIP WORKSHOP | BASS Bass guitarists (both future and current), this month’s workshop is for YOU!
