A fun way to serve others less fortunate. Have a favorite recipe you want to make? Let us know so we can get all the ingredients you need. Contact Kevin Fox email@example.com (847) 971-4986.

Stable Tour Volunteering Memorial Day Weekend - Kat Gemmer and her team are hard at work for the Stable Tour planning and there is an important role for the Youth Group. This is your chance to shine and share your gifts with the community as we welcome people from across the region to Trinity.
Other events in the planning: Early Summer Canoe trip on the Shenandoah, Youth group fundraiser/ project, service project, bowling night, Shrinemont camp.
Parents please reach out to Kevin regarding your child’s availability/interest to participate in Youth activities. We are eager to set schedules and plan activities to make it as easy as possible for the most people to participate. Please encourage them to bring along a friend, being a church member is not required.
We are looking forward to a fun and thought-provoking spring and summer!

June 12-16, 2017
9 AM - 12 Noon
A little about this year’s program:
At the Maker Fun Factory, kids explore what it means to be created by God for a purpose. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play team- building games, make and dig into yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of Jesus’ love, and make crafts that represent their uniqueness and creativity. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Maker Fun Factory closing that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
Age Requirement and Placement:
This adventure is available to all children, age 3 through current 5th grade (Children must have turned 3 by June 12, 2017 and be potty-trained). Preschoolers will be placed in separate small groups, and elementary-age children will be placed in small groups of similar age and grade levels.
