Dear Families and Friends,
Greetings! As most of you know, the 7:00 pm service has now been moved a bit earlier to 6:00 pm with an addition of childcare. This is really exciting because it will enable some families to join us more regularly, and it will also alleviate some of the busy-ness and crowding in the earlier services. It will be a wonderful addition to have the children in the building at the later service.
In the next few weeks, we are trying to get a feel for which families we can expect in the evenings. I truly appreciate your support and patience as we take note of attendance patterns and adequately assign volunteers as needed. We will be opening our classrooms for all ages, infant through 5th grade, but may combine some rooms as is practical.
Parents of 4th & 5th grade students: In the coming months, we will be adapting and re-imagining our Sunday curriculum to address the growing needs of our older children. Although we will still be operating within the Contemplative Model, we will be offering lessons on topics ranging from Communion to Self Control to The Personhood of Jesus. These topics will be taught in month-long series and it is our hope and prayer that these will provide important knowledge for young people in a very transitional and special time in their lives. I will be collaborating with the ALPHA teachers and Youth volunteers to ensure that upcoming Middle Schoolers will be well equipped for the challenges of their burgeoning independence. More information is forthcoming; thank you for praying for the students and volunteers during this exciting time.
Another wonderful addition to our Trinity family is Christine Cown, who will be working with volunteers and families as she supports Trinity Kids. Christine and her husband Kevin (and now their son, Judah) have been a part of our community for many years and Christine has been instrumental in serving and coordinating volunteers. She is a dedicated part of the Women’s and Moms’ ministries as well. We are beyond thrilled to have her partnership and to enjoy the addition of her skills and experience with the children here at Trinity. Please welcome Christine to our crew! For those of you who don't know Christine already, here is a face to go with a name...
Thanks a million for your support of Trinity Kids! Please let me know if you have any questions or need clarification on anything at all. You can stay abreast of all that is going on through our blog: www.trinitykidsministry.blogspot.com and by joining the trinityKids Facebook page.
May I continue to extend my appreciation for your encouragement and understanding! It is a great privilege to love your children.
All my best,
Julia Guy, Children’s Pastor
