Welcome to Trinity’s Kid Church online!
Happy July 4th weekend to you!
We hope that you and your family are healthy and safe whether you are at home or away on vacation this weekend.
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!

- BIBLE IDEAS
Select a story from the Bible (use the Bible app for kids) to read a portion together and then talk about how it speaks to each person.
Preschool Discussion Ideas: While reading the story aloud, have your little one act it out, then tell the story back to you. Remind them of these truths: Jesus loves me; Jesus sees me; Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
