In January of this year we launched our new Kids Church on Sunday mornings.
This week, we introduced prayer stations to help kids spend time with God. At our stations on February 9, kids prayed while eating a candy heart, used pipe cleaners to create the initials of someone to pray for, drew a picture of how we can show love and kindness to others, and created a crossword to spell out names of people to pray for and words that describe God.
Kids Church began on Sunday, January 5. Sunday’s big idea was: We can spend time with God. Each small group pretended to be astronauts (wearing a helmet and gloves) and attempted to put together a puzzle in the midst of many distractions. We then discussed that if we had more time and the ability to practice, we would get better at it. This experience is similar to spending time with God. We can face many distractions and it can feel awkward, but with practice, spending time with God becomes a habit!
Trinity Kids Families began focusing on Advent at last week’s Preparing Your Family for Advent event. Families created gingerbread nativities and left with an Advent To Go box, filled with devotions for the advent season.Advent To Go boxes will be available to pick up at the Welcome Center for the next two Sundays for those who’d like one and were unable to attend.
