Bonnie Deroski, Sally Jacober-Brown and Lorraine Carroll covet your prayers for the upcoming ZBS which meets one day a week starting on June 29th. Including GraceKids regulars, 54 children from eleven US states and two Canadian provinces have registered for this hybrid program that Bonnie is calling a ZBS (Zoom Bible School). Bonnie says, “I really wanted Grace kids to develop a sense of their place and purpose in the world. One of the ways for them to do that is to meet kids from all over. I’m thrilled that families will be participating from wherever they are.”
The global citizenship themes (“So you are no longer outsiders and strangers. You are citizens together with God’s people. You are also members of God’s family.” Ephesians 2:19) will be introduced thru video, music, scripture reading, interactive prayer, bible superheroes and discussion.The principles of global citizenship are identity, diversity, interdependence, justice, and environmental responsibility. And central to the ZBS will be a Soles4Souls Shoe Drive where families will be able to put to practice and see lived out the values of the ZBS. (stay tuned for more info about how you can participate!)
Please pray for the leaders, the children and their families to grow closer to God and each other and to understand their place and purpose in our global community.
