Children Belong in the Center of Middle

October 22, 2014

On October 19, in honor of National Children’s Sabbath, our first Freedom School monthly event brought some 15 young people, from grades K--12, to Middle Church to work with artist Joachim Marx and psychologist Mayowa Obasaju on identity and self-esteem. “A self portrait is not a picture," Dr. Obasaju said. "It is a reflection of who you are inside.” All day we celebrated God’s special love of children, with special music by our Teen Chorus and our Village Chorus for Children. In sermons at both the 11:15a Celebration and Art & Soul at 6:00p, we heard “Children are not only our future, they are our present.”

Our next Freedom school planning meeting is November 2 at 10:00a. Our next Freedom School event is November 9 from 2:00p-5:00p. For information, email Rachel Hippert at
