What an amazing summer it has been in Children’s Ministry at Trinity!
From Mega Sports Camp Summer Sunday School to ROAR VBS, we have had wonderful opportunities to grow in our faith while learning that we can live out our faith in everything we do in our daily lives.
Here is what we are up to:
ROAR VBS was a wonderful way for us to share the Gospel with our children and the children of the community. We learned that life can be wild, unfair, scary, full of changes, and sad but through it all God is good!
Shawnee Campus VBS was June 24-28 and we served 150 participants with 55 volunteers.
Mission Campus VBS was July 9-13 and we served 94 participants with 40 volunteers.
“The best way to describe LVR is my home away from home. I can honestly, without a doubt, say LVR has been one of the best and most meaningful experiences of my life. Every year, I am amazed by all the love I am surrounded by up on the mountain and miss it the second I step on the bus to leave.”
“The reason that I go to LVR the past three years is because the things that we talk about when I am up there. This year we talked about “Walk This Way” and how you have to walk with God and Jesus through all the tough times and never lose your faith in him.”
Summer Service for Youth
Vacation Bible School
A large number of Trinity youth served this summer at both the Shawnee and Mission ROAR VBS events. Youth helped with decorating, as crew leaders, station leaders, and station assistants. They also helped with setup and take down.
Kids’ Café Lunch
At the Mission campus, youth also helped serve as part of Kids’ Café summer lunch program with the set up and take down of tables and chairs each day, as well as helpers for our little ones during lunch.
Youth served as camp coaches for our afternoon Kid’s Kamp at the Mission campus. They guided the children in their activities through the camp week.
Youth Group Bible Studies
On Sunday mornings the youth have been watching clips from the movie “The Case For Christ,” which follows the true story of Lee Strobel and how he came to follow Christ. His life story helps us as we wrestle with doubts and uncertainties when it comes to faith and life. Youth and adult leaders have been sharing meaningful Bible verses with the group on Sunday nights. It has been a great way to get to know each other better and hear about how God’s Word impacts our lives.
Thank you for all of the support Trinity gives to youth ministry. Giving regularly to the OneFund and supporting our fundraisers throughout the year make events like LVR possible. It has been awesome to see our congregation respond! Please be praying for the youth ministry as we look ahead to this fall! Volunteers and staff are hard at work preparing curriculum, events, and service projects for our youth and families. Stay tuned for more information to come!
