Kids' Ministry Winter Newsletter

Hello Holy Trinity families!

So much fun making gingerbread houses!

So much fun making gingerbread houses!

The new year is off to a roaring start!

We ended 2018 with a gingerbread house-building extravaganza!  The kids had an awesome time crafting some amazing houses and got to show off their creativity, while consuming large amounts of sugar! What could be better?  A huge thank you to our volunteer parents who stuck around and helped out!

We started the new year with a Hawaiian luau in January to bring a little warmth to our cold winter. We brought out decorations from last year’s VBS (I regret that I forgot to take pictures!) and pulled out all the stops! The kids had a blast playing limbo, stomping ‘coconuts’, hula-hooping, painting seashells and eating pizza!

A few kids’ ministry news items of note:

Our new quiet activity bags

Our new quiet activity bags

  • We’ve updated our quiet activity bags!  For any who are unaware, we offer quiet bags for kids to use during service on Sundays that provide fun, calm activities for the kids. We’ve updated the look of them (some liturgical colors never hurt!), and added some new toy items.

  • As you may have heard, our nursery has transitioned away from having two paid staff to only one, with the other spot being filled with a rotation of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for one service every other month, contact me via email or phone. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve the young families at Holy Trinity and get a baby fix at the same time!

  • As is often the case, we also need more volunteers willing to teach in our elementary TCT classes and Children’s Church once a month! This is an amazing ministry to the kids and families in our church body and your consideration is deeply appreciated.

  • On Saturday, February 16th, from 5:30-7:30 the kids will be decorating Valentine’s day cookies at the church! Join us for some smiles and sweet treats! Parents are welcome to stay and participate, but are also totally free to drop the kids off and have a date night!

  • On Saturday, March 30th, from 5:30-7:30 we will be having our second annual kids lenten art party!

    Stay tuned for more details for upcoming events, and of course, feel free to reach out with any questions, or family needs.
