At the end of June, it will be one year since my appointment began at Trinity. I’m thankful for all the support and encouragement from staff, leadership and congregation! I look forward to another year of wonderful ministry together. Below are some important dates for Youth and Children’s Ministry.

Please note for Children’s ministry we will hold classes through the summer. All the teachers will be on break from regular teaching while Lauren Michelle and I along with volunteers will continue to hold classes at 9:30 and 10:30. We have not determined the curriculum but we will utilize more storytelling, arts, songs, games, and dancing to move away from a lecture-class format. Many of the teachers have already incorporated these elements into their classes and have shared with me their effectiveness and ability to engage students.

I like to think of the changes as having a ‘summer school’ atmosphere. I remember as an elementary student, regular school hours were filled with homework, tests, and lectures while summer school hours were about art, games and engaging activities. I was looking forward to waking up the next day so that I could go to summer school! Summer children’s ministry might not be that dramatically different but I would like to try something new.

Usually during summer, attendance drops because of travel and vacation plans. However, we will continue vibrant Youth and Children’s Ministries for the summer. Please make plans to join us for an engaging July and August.
