God Saves His People, the First Edition of SojournKids Magazine (Summer/Fall 2015)

Jared KennedyComment

Dear Parent,

Can you imagine what it would have been like to walk through the Red Sea on dry land? Imagine standing on the far side of the sea and watching the walls of water crash down on the Egyptians—your enemies who had enslaved you. It’s an epic scene. God saves his people. 

In August, Sojourn will begin a new sermon series on the book of Exodus. And we’ll be exploring it with the kids as well. We will learn how when we were enslaved to sin, God rescued us by his grace. He leads us like a shepherd through the wilderness and takes us to the promise land. You can join us by teaching your kids about Exodus at home. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Fill a brownie pan with a half-inch of water. Bring it to the table. Challenge your kids to see if they can use their hands to separate the water by putting their hands together in a praying position then slowly separating them to the sides of the pan. They’ll see the water soon comes rushing back. We can’t even part an inch of water, bu God parted the whole red sea to save his people.
  • Follow the provided Exodus reading plan on page 6. This plan gives you the weekly Bible passage we’re studying in SojournKids and points you to the same stories in two popular Bible storybooks. 
  • Play the “Escape from Egypt” board game you’ll find at the center of this magazine. After playing a few times, see if your kids can remember the 10 plagues in order.
