September 11th is Rally Day at Trinity! That means a return of many of our regular activities, including Faith Adventures, our Sunday school program.
To help kick things off, this Sunday kids should bring along their school bag for the Blessing of the Backpacks.
Please join us!
As summer draws to a close and the new school year beckons, we look ahead to our own autumn season, beginning with the blessing of the backpacks, the start-up on confirmation classes and opportunities to hear about the amazing youth trip to Detroit! Here’s a calendar of what’s coming up!
Welcome Back and Backpack Sunday – We’ll bless the children’s backpacks as a new school year begins and register children and youth for Faith Adventures, Affirmation and Confirmation.
Youth are invited to a Friday evening bowling event on Sept 18, at 7:00 pm. Another event at a date to be determined will feature a screening of the movie, “Godspell”. At the Confirmation Camp this past week, 17 Trinity youth and Nathan pulled off a wonderful musical presentation of the Parable of the Prodigal Son that came from “Godspell”. Thank you to Lisa Hagen for directing them in rehearsal!
On Saturday, September 19th a new Nith Valley Ministry Area Confirmation program is launching at St. James Lutheran Church in New Dundee on Celebrating Baptism. These monthly Confirmation class gatherings will continue through the school year. Trinity will host the March gathering. A couple of parents of Confirmation students are needed to participate in the first Nith Valley Ministry Area Confirmation class from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at St James Lutheran Church in New Dundee.
Youth and Nathan will help lead worship and after worship will share their experiences at the Detroit Youth Gathering and Confirmation Camp!
The year end Trinity carnival took place on Sunday, June 7th after worship – here are some highlights! They include Youth Minister Nathan Mantey getting dunked! Face painting, games and races, water balloon tosses, ice treats and prizes — it was a great day! Many thanks to Nathan, the youth and children and the Parents Advisory Group! Check out the images at right and on the Image Gallery Page!
Trinity celebrated Pentecost on Sunday, May 24th with a colourful choir singing an anthem! We also gathered for a great “Sparks” discussion of the future of the Faith Adventures and Youth programs in our church. Go to our Image Gallery to see more pictures from the day!
Next week, May 31st, is Music Sunday when the Trinity Choir and Handbell Ensemble will perform a variety of works. After worship, we will gather to hear more about what it means to resettle refugees in our community. Join us! All are welcome.
