TO TEACH children



Sojourn Kids Mission and Goals

Here at Sojourn Church, we are representing the gospel of King Jesus while he renews all things. We are learning to wait patiently for him, while he reminds us again, and again, and again, that he delights in us. The resultant mission of Sojourn Kids is to partner with families in equipping children to know and love King Jesus. In order to carry out that mission, the Sojourn Kids team is committed to:

  • Preparing kids and families to worship together as they grow (we love when kids want to attend Sojourn Kids and we love when they want to attend church with their families instead).

  • Presenting age specific and developmentally appropriate gospel-centered curriculum. Kids will hear the gospel again, and again, and again.

  • Developing more and better strategic patterns of communication with parents and families.

  • Leading the way in demonstrating healthy, vibrant relationships within our volunteer teams, and with families.


bringing your family to sojourn for the first time?

We consider it a huge honor to have your whole family with us for worship. When you decide to leave your kids in our care, it is our top priority to make sure that they are in a safe, welcoming, gospel-rich environment with caring adults who take your children’s well being very seriously.

We offer childcare for babies (age 3ish months - 24 months), and kids ministry for toddlers - 5th grade. For more information on our check-in procedures, safety policies, health and hygiene information, and classrooms offered, click below for a summary of Sojourn Kids policies.


The Gospel Project Curriculum

Sojourn Kids in Traverse City joyfully teaches using The Gospel Project curriculum for our toddlers through 5th grade students. We love how it helps us discuss old and new testament stories chronologically, making much of Jesus every week. For more information about the Gospel Project, click here, or email Melissa,


Volunteering with Sojourn Kids

Let’s face it. Kids ministry is the most fun. At Sojourn, we are committed to wholehearted volunteer care, caring relationships, and the ongoing spiritual growth of anyone who serves here. The Sojourn Kids ministry team is a diverse crew of committed adults and teen leaders who pray, teach, play, and engage in authentic friendship with kids, all while fostering a safe and welcoming environment for learning and worship. If you have a heart for kids to know and love King Jesus, we would love to talk with you more about joining the team.
