All Church School age kids and their families are invited to join us for a Halloween Party on Saturday, October 28 from 2 to 3 pm for some fun, games, and treats! Wear your costume and join us!
COMMUNION OPTION FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN
In recent decades, Trinity has reserved communion for children of the age of 5th grade and older. Last year, pastors and church council opened up a way for children younger than 5th grade to receive communion, provided they have parental permission. All children will still be part of our 5th grade class that delves deeper into communion. Our new policy is that parents may decide when the time is right for their child to receive communion, and so whether you decide to commune your child before or after 5th grade, we trust that communion will continue to be a meaningful experience for all. The new class, Preparing your child for First Communion, will be offered on Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 7:15-8:00 p.m. in the Conference Room or Sunday, Nov. 5 from 9:30-10:20 a.m. in the Conference Room. Parents who would like to prepare their younger child to receive first communion are invited to attend a class which will give them guidance on communion basics and how to discuss communion with their children. Families will receive a free copy of “A place for You” a story book that can help your child learn about the story of Jesus and explore the meaning of communion.
