LIGHT@9 

Trinity’s Church School has a new look and a new name, LIGHT@9 (Learning in God's House Together at 9).  Children ages 4 through grade 5 are meeting together in Vincent Hall where we are using a rotation model curriculum.  They are spending three to four weeks working with each Bible story and learning it through different means each week.  The stories are presented through six possible workshops—games, art, music, drama, science, and video, and cooking.

This model is a wonderful adventure for both teachers and children and has provided the opportunity to try something new and different as we return from being away for so long.

All children ages 4 through grade 5 are invited to join the fun every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. in Vincent Hall.  May 22 is the final session for the spring.  We will be resuming in the fall and invite all children and youth ages 4 through high school to join our church school classes.  Ages 4 through Grade 5 meet in Vincent Hall and middle and high school classes meet on the second floor.  

 

 

LIGHT@9 will be wrapping up for the year with a special event:

Ice Cream for Breakfast

Sunday, May 22, 9-10 a.m.

Come celebrate the end of a great LIGHT@9 year for K-12 Christian education/formation!

Ice cream, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, hula hoops, conversation, and more! 

We invite all children and youth who are connected to Trinity, even if they haven’t yet attended Sunday morning classes  or haven’t this year, to join us out on the lawn at 9:30 on that day.  We’d love to see you!

 

Bible Story Fun

What:  Bible story fun

When: During Sunday worship, from second hymn on, June 5 – August 28

Who:  Ages 4-8

Leaders:  Rob Powell & Leslie Hastings & volunteers

Parents must drop off and pick up their child.  If your child was registered for the 2021-2022 program year, you will just sign your child in.  If participants weren’t registered for LIGHT@9 church school during the 2021-2022 program year, parents will need to register their child the first time they come.  You can do this when you bring your child or you can email Leslie Hastings at leslieahastings@gmail.com.  Then you will just sign in your child each week.

 

Chapel Kids

Chapel Kids is a worship service that we create together, for ages 7 -12.  We meet in our Chapel, and come together with our prayers, our thoughts, our questions and our creativity.  The kids participate in the beginning of the worship service in the sanctuary and then move into the chapel to have time together.  Chapel Kids runs every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month (Communion) and special Sundays.  We hope you join us!
 
During Lent, the Chapel Kids created a Lenten Garden as part of their worship experience.
 

Children's Message

 
Every Sunday there's a special Children's Message during the worship service in the sanctuary.  Rob Powell, the Director of Program Ministries and Connections, shares a message just for children that goes along with the sermon and theme for the day.  All children are invited to join him on the chancel steps and participate.
