Past Events

Nursery

A nursery is provided for all worship services. Nursery is also available for most church sponsored events throughout the week upon request. Please call the church office at least 24 hours prior to an event to request nursery space. The nursery is located in Room 18, close to the South East entrance.


Weekly Sunday School

We are looking forward to the day we can all be together.  In the absence of face to face Sunday School, you are invited to the facebook page Trinity United Methodist Church–Not Your Ordinary Church.  By 9:30am each Sunday you will find music videos and Cokesbury Kids Sunday School.  A bible storyteller and the Deep Blue kids help children consider how they can know God better and serve Jesus in their everyday lives.  You are invited to download and print activities for children or simply view the story online and be done.  Your choice.


When we return to Sunday School inside Trinity, face to face we will begin with Celebrate Wonder!  Come every Sunday, come any Sunday you can.  Everyone welcome!

Sundays, 9:45-10:45am.

Preschool and Elementary Children:

LEARNING THROUGH A LENS OF WONDER

Celebrate Wonder is a Sunday school curriculum that engages children’s natural sense of curiosity to help them understand God’s love. It creates a safe environment for kids to ask big questions — helping them explore the Bible in ways that feed their imagination and encourages creativity. Through carefully-selected Bible stories, songs, videos, and hands-on activities, Celebrate Wonder gives children the tools to explore their faith while incorporating it into their daily lives. A short bible story and scripture is experienced each week.  Each of these bible stories combine throughout the year to paint a larger picture of our faith story from both the Old and New Testaments.


4th & 5th grade Sunday School:  Less pencil and paper, more hands on….

4th & 5th grade Sunday School uses all types of learning styles to help the meaning of the bible come alive:  Art, Cooking, Games, Music/Movement, Science, Storytelling, Video, Drama.

Imagine a Sunday school classroom where children examine Van Gogh’s Starry Night and paint their own version while discussing God’s promise to Abram when God said, “Look at the sky and try to count the stars; you will have as many descendants as that.” (Genesis 15:5, Good News)

Or enter a room where children are playing the “Laughing Game.”  The teacher reminds the children how elderly Abraham and Sarah laughed when God told them they would have a baby named Isaac or laughter.

And can you imagine visiting the church kitchen for Sunday school class? That’s where some children are making the kinds of food that might have been served when Abraham held a feast when Isaac was weaned (Genesis 21:8).


Backpack Connection

Currently unavailable.  When we are able to meet in the building again face to face, your child will find an opportunity to participate in this free after school program for 1st – 5th grade children.  Homework session, games, crafts, science, cooking, music, bible stories, field trips, service projects and more.  Thursday afternoons after school.


Acolytes

Acolytes lead us in worship by lighting the candles at the beginning of worship to remind us of God’s presence and then to lead us out into the world at the end of the service to remind us that God goes with us. The acolytes are in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. Training is available throughout the year for anyone interested. For more information contact the church office at 825-5270.
