I’m Catching the Wave!

Hi to all the kids of Trinity Church! I am so happy it’s July. I hope your summer is going well.

How do you like my picture? That’s me at Dog Beach in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. I love the surf and the sand. It’s fun to make sandcastles. Have you ever made a sand angel? It’s like a snow angel except you make it in the sand instead.

I’m super excited that the theme of this year’s Vacation Bible School is Surf Shack Catch the Wave of God’s Amazing Love. It’s a beach theme! In case you’ve never been to Vacation Bible School, let me tell you about it. It’s cool! We get to make fun crafts, sing great songs, and have yummy snacks. Our VBS leaders even have fun science projects. Best of all, we get to learn all about God’s amazing love for us.

Tell your parents to mark their calendar. VBS is August 15-19. There’s more information about it on the church website, so check it out. If you are between the age of three and fourth grade, be sure to join us. For those older than that, Trinity would love to have you as a volunteer. If your parents or grandparents have questions, they can contact Jen Calsyn (jenfuqua@gmail.com) or Marci Thomas (lovemarci@hotmail.com).

I hope you can come to Surf Shack. I’m stoked about it! Now, where did I put those boardshorts?

Always remember my motto: Paws for Jesus!
