SojournKids

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Thank you for letting us serve your family by teaching and caring for your children. As a dad of three girls myself, I don’t take it lightly anytime a family entrusts their children into our care. At SojournKids, our goal is simple:

We want to show Jesus to kids and families so they grow to be like him and go to tell others about him.

We believe this will be accomplished when we parents grow in our own love for Jesus and the church partners with us to teach and model the gospel to our kids. To that end, we want to provide you with as many tools and resources as we can. So, explore this website and check out all the tools below. 

Yours in Christ, 

Pastor Jared Kennedy
