2017-18 Faith Formation for Pre K – Grade 2
Pre K – Grade 2 will meet on Sundays from 9-10am in the Trinity Garden Room. The first session is October 1st.
2nd Grade – Whenever possible, these older students will move to another room after music and their lesson and craft/activity will honor their advanced maturity.
NOTE ABOUT OFFERINGS IN SUNDAY FAITH FORMATION
We encourage children to begin learning how to share their resources by bringing an offering each Sunday morning. Even at this young age, we believe they will find joy and purpose in being part of something bigger than themselves. Half of this offering is given to Trinity “because we are grateful for our church and want to help support it” and the other half to the Food Shelf of Valley Outreach “because our tummies have enough food and feel full and happy but some people’s tummies feel hungry and sad, so we share what we have.” Make opportunities to visit with your child about giving from their allowances and/or gifts of money rather than always pulling it out of your pocket/purse. “When you share with others, you still have enough for yourself. That’s how faith and God work. Give it a try and see for yourself.” (Giving is faith forming.)
Other faith-forming stewardship is through our time and talents. See the “Family Volunteer Opportunities” tab.
