Sunday School is taking a break in July and August, and we will return in September for the beginning of the program year.
Save the Date! Blessing of the Backpacks and Devices – August 2
Join us virtually on Sunday evening, August 2, at 6:30pm for a back-to-school blessing which will include a blessing of the backpacks and all devices used for eLearning during this time of COVID. Also coming your way from Illustrated Ministry, backpack tags for you to place on your packs, or hang on your bulletin boards at home, as a reminder that God is always with you.
Below is the Zoom Meeting Information. Parents, please note this event will also go live on Trinity’s Facebook Page as well!
Ms. McPherson has also recorded two sets of video lessons: one set for children in PreK-3rd and one for children who are in 4th grade and up. We will walk through a brief morning prayer practice and cover lessons in the workbooks, as well as give you ideas for how to go through the workbook.
Talking to Your Kids About Racism and Current Events
Families, we are going through so much right now, and you may be wondering how to discuss all that is taking place in our country with your kids. It’s a difficult topic for us, made even more difficult when we try to break it down and explain it to our children. For now, here are a couple resources and ideas for you to consider:
This NYT Article has several resources on how to talk about racism and protest with your children. We will be reading some of these books in upcoming Sunday School classes as well. Take a look and see if you find this helpful. Books written on the topic are often the best way to begin the conversation at home.
Look around on social media for local “chalking the streets” events nearby, or just do it yourselves. Walk around your neighborhood and chalk some uplifting and supportive messages as your family’s way of sharing in this movement. Some ideas: “God loves and includes all,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Stop the violence, stop the hate”.
