This year's Community Vacation Bible School will take place at Lexington United Methodist Church Sunday July 7th- Wednesday, July 10th, with a special family event planned for Thursday, July 11th.
The 2019 curriculum is Cokesbury's To Mars and Beyond: One small step for your kids...one giant leap for God's Kingdom!
Blast off with the first VBS to land on Mars! Cokesbury's To Mars and Beyond will
help kids discover the wonders of God's universe. They'll become
Voyagers on a journey through space, exploring where God's power can
take them. Beginning in your Assembly area-an outpost on Mars-they'll
lift off to distant planets on special missions to collect power
sources. Along the way, they'll learn how God walked with heroes of the
Bible, and that God is always with them, too. Add to the adventure with
out-of-this-world fun, learning, and timeless Bible stories that inspire
kids to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we
could ask or imagine!
VBS PLANNING TEAM MEETING: Wednesday, May 1st at 6:00 p.m. at Lexington United Methodist Church
Camp Mo-Val offers wonderful opportunities to escape from the pressures of daily life, experience God’s natural world, take time for personal reflection, join together as part of a community and grow in one’s faith… as well as laugh, play and have fun.
Camp Mo-Val seeks to provide a “Ministry of Hospitality” through a wide range of camping experiences and retreat possibilities. The camp serves children, youth, families and adults of all ages — regardless of religion, family status, gender, capability, or ethnic origin — who recognize the value of all people and respect our faith tradition. Guests come from a variety of faith-based, educational, not-for-profit, civic and business organizations.
For more specific information, contact the Camp Mo-Val staff at 636-583-2730 or 877-344-2267 (toll free). Or visit the Camp Mo-Val website http://www.campmoval.org/
In 2011 Trinity UCC started a scholarship fund for camp participants. We sent 4 Young Disciples to camp in 2012 and again in 2013! Our scholarship fund is an important ministry to our Young Disciples as it helps them learn, build friendships, experience the presence of the Holy Spirit, and become responsible stewards of God's creation. We are grateful to all of the Camp Mo-Val staff, who help our Young Disciples do just that! Tax-deductible contributions to the scholarship fund are received on an ongoing basis. You may make checks payable to "Trinity UCC" and write "Camp Scholarship Fund" in the "Memo" section of your check. Please send checks to: Trinity UCC c/o Pastor Liz Deveney, 1312 Franklin Avenue, Lexington MO 64067. We thank you for your support!
Children's Sunday School takes place year-round in the Education Building at 9:00 a.m. Our approach is Bible-centered and encourages kids to open the Scriptures and explore God's Word through a variety of age-appropriate activities designed to accommodate all of the different ways children learn. Contemporary songs, with participation from our young disciples, are an integral part of worship. Trinity UCC also offers a "Time For All God's Children" segment of worship.
