The Episcopal Youth Group has some exciting activities planned in the coming months. There are opportunities for fellowship, service and of course fun. Please join us and bring a friend to any of the events.

March 3- Ski Trip to Liberty Mountain. 8am at Trinity parking lot. There is a chance the mountain will not be open but we have a fun “plan B” if not, a trip to the water park in Massanutten. Contact Lisa White to sign up. Parent volunteers/ skiers also welcome. We will provide updates based on the weather late in the week.

March 11—Activity planning and SOME cookie bake - Following the 10:30 service we’ll meet to discuss your ideas and hopes for Youth Group and then bake cookies in the church kitchen for the church’s ministry to So Others Might Eat soup kitchen in Washington DC. 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 (847) 971-4986.

Youth Sunday Service- Mother’s Day, May 13. We will discuss and help plan the service during Sunday youth meetings in April. Save the date.

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!

Big Things for Sunday School

Big things are happening at Sunday School and we need your help!

The Christian Education of our children is one of the most important ministries in our church and for those of us who are parents of school age children. We are seeking your support and involvement to make our programs as successful and enjoyable as possible. We are looking for people interested to serve on the Christian Education Committee. We will meet monthly to discuss our programs and events and how best to meet the needs of our community. Please contact Kevin Fox (847) 971-4986, or the Church Office if you’re interested in learning more.

On December 17th at 9:30 we will be meeting in the Choir room in the basement of Cox Hall to discuss our Youth programs (grades 7-12). We would love to see parents, parishioners, young people in grades 7-12, and any of our recent members home from college to share breakfast and ideas on how to build on the recent success of our youth programs. We want to start 2018 running with activities and opportunities to help our youth grow in their faith and fellowship!

Please consider joining in and rallying others to participate in this important aspect in the life of our church and our families.

Vacation Bible School

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.
