Sunday School News
Classes Have Begun & Registration Is Still Open
Sunday School began on September 14 with over 90 children in
attendance! We are thankful for the over 50 adults and teens that are
dedicating their time and talents to teach the Gospel to the children of
Trinity.
Children ages 3 to Grade 6 can enroll at anytime. Registration is available online at
tlcs.org (click on the Sunday School slide) as well as paper forms available outside the
Children’s Ministries office. Visiting children are always welcome!
Sunday School classes are from 9:30–10:30 each Sunday. Children in preschool and
kindergarten meet in the Gym, while children in Grades 1–6 meet in the Music Room.
We Need YOU!
We are looking for a few more adult volunteers to dedicate their time and talents as
workshop leaders.
Our workshop leaders prepare only one lesson for the month and
then teach it each week to a different group of children. Leaders
can choose to teach for one month, two months, or every month.
They can choose an area that reflects their talents, whether that’s
crafts, storytelling, acting, cooking, music, computers, etc. This is a
great chance for partners, groups, and individuals to dedicate four
Sundays (or more) out of the year to sharing their time and talents
with the children of Trinity!
Please contact Jayne VanderVelde for more information and to volunteer for
this exciting year of Sunday School!
