Gather Round I and Gather Round II meets every first and third Thursday in the Fellowship Hall and Sunday School classrooms. Gather Round I is for K, 1st and 2nd grades, and Gather Round II is for 3rd and 4th graders.
Last year we played, studied and sang while learning about the Bible and God’s Word. This year we have new materials, films, songs and crafts to help us learn more about Jesus.
As in the past, the children will be able to get off the bus at Trinity and parents will pick them up at 5:00. (Home school parents are responsible for drop-off and pick-up.)
Our goal is to help kids to experience God’s love and to develop a personal relationship with Jesus through Bible stories, crafts, songs and games with adults from our community who love kids. We will send home activities and ideas for you to talk about with your child to follow up on the lessons. As usual we will begin with a snack…. which brings the kids running off the bus and into the church hall. They are hungry after their school day! Looking forward to a meaningful and fun time with your children! Thank you for sharing them with us.
Trinity will have its Annual Meeting immediately following worship on Sunday, January 21st. Reports of 2017 will be read and reviewed, and new council members elected. A vote on accepting the revised by-laws will also be held.
