Today's Thursday Book Club involves a bit of self-promotion. What is the Church? is Sojourn’s second children’s book, written by Mandy Groce and Bill Bell. What Is The Church? was written to teach preschool children that the church is not a building. It is a people that God has called together and made alive by faith. The book teaches the five Christian identities which every believer should embody. This is the concept behind the second part of our current Faith-Mapping sermon series. And you can see it explained simply in this Sojourn Vision video from last year:
I'm highlighting the book now, because this is a great way to teach the concepts you're learning in Sunday Gatherings to your kids when you are at home. Get the book. Pick up a copy at the book table on Sunday or purchase it online here. Then, talk to your kids over the next few weeks about how you're learning to be a worshiper, family member, servant, learner, and missionary.
