RENEWING OUR PROMISES

Becoming a junior member of The Salvation Army is an important decision.  It’s a decision that is followed up with this promise:

I know that Jesus is my Savior from sin.
I have asked him to forgive my sins, and I will trust him to keep my good.
By his help, I will be his loving and obedient child, and will help others to follow him.
I promise to pray, to read my Bible, and to lead a life that is clean in thought, word and deed.
I will not use anything that may injure my body or my mind, including harmful drugs,
alcohol and tobacco.

Our junior members are often faced with pressure to fill their lives with things that are not pleasing to God, to put other activities first before spending time growing their relationship with God, and to keep His Good News to themselves.  Let’s support their decision to become junior soldiers – let’s have a special Sunday just for them! Host a Junior Soldier Renewal Sunday!
The Canada Bermuda Youth Department has created new downloadable Junior Soldier Renewal Promise Cards, Junior Soldier Day of Renewal Bulletins and Ready to Serve Commitment Cards and Bulletins.

iJS - RTS Renewal Cards

Junior Soldier Promise and Ready to Serve Commitment Cards
These two sided cards encourage your junior members and your RTS squad members to renew their promises and commitment to love, worship and serve God.

JS Renewal Sunday Bulletin

Junior Soldier Day of Renewal Bulletins
Use this colourful bulletin to remind junior members and adults of the promises the young people have made. Encourage everyone to take the bulletin home as a reminder to pray for the young people.

Ready To Serve - Sunday Bulletin

Ready to Serve Sunday Bulletins
This colourful bulletin may be used to highlight your Ready to Serve Recruits. Give your recruits an opportunity to lead worship, read scripture, share prayers and lead the adults in learning about what it means to serve God through The Salvation Army.
