Justice Journey For Kids

Justice Journey for Kids (For Ages 7-11)

With the belief that children are fully a part of the body of Christ, and in the hope that the next generation will celebrate the diversity of God’s kingdom and be empowered by the Spirit and the love of Christ to overcome the injustice inherent in a broken world, Make and Deepen Disciples and Love Mercy Do Justice have partnered to develop this resource.

This resource includes eight modules with three sessions in each module for a total of 24 sessions.
