Last week was Summer Celebration (morning kid’s camp) here at Covenant Life Church. Mike and Janelle—Mr. and Mrs. B to the kids—and our cousin Brett (aka Douglas Doogleberry) along with countless servants, taught the kids about the fruits of the Spirit in a gospel-saturated program.
They led the kids in worship with brand-new songs from the latest Sovereign Grace kids album. Here’s a description from their website:
To Be Like Jesus contains twelve worship songs that teach the fruit of the Spirit in a creative and memorable way. Through these songs kids will learn that Jesus is our perfect example of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. More than that, they’ll discover that we can’t be like Jesus unless we trust in the power of his cross to forgive us and the power of his Spirit to change us.
My boys walk around the house singing: “I want to be like Jesus.” Words like that (even when they’re sung loudly and off key) are music to a mom’s ears. But I highly recommend that everyone buy this new cd. Even if you don’t have kids, you’ll enjoy the music and be inspired to grow in godliness.
Also, we thought you might be interested in a few pictures from Summer Celebration. Every day, as part of the program, Janelle (Mrs. B) bakes a “Fruit of the Spirit Pie” that gets thrown in Mr. B’s face at the end of the day. It’s the highlight of the morning.
Well, on Tuesday, Brett (Douglas Doogleberry) accidentally gave Mrs. B a face full of “Joy Pie.” Really, this wasn’t part of the script. Neither was Mrs. B’s response. She decided to give Douglas some “Joy” as well and all three had a good laugh. So did the kids.
