We hope that you and your family are healthy and safe at home enjoying each other’s company and God’s presence. He is always with us as His Word promises.
Please find below three age-specific lessons that our Trinity kids (or your child/children) would have learned during class time on Sunday. We encourage you to read through the appropriate lesson first and then actively help your child read and understand the lesson no matter their age. It is important to keep connected to God and to each other, especially at times like this and we hope that these lessons will help you in planning your own family worship time this week.
Peace and blessings from your Trinity Family!
