The 1% Solution

#meetthechallenge and join Trinity's stewardship board and LCMS in the quest to spend 1% of each day in Bible reading & prayer plus 1% of each week in worship. #1%solution #lcms #tlcvp # meetthechallenge

We will be letting you know of opportunities to reach this goal.

But for starters, if you are on social media feel free to post a photo of you and/or what you are reading with the hashtag #tlcvp We would love to see what devotionals you are loving right now!

Trinity Christian
Nursery School

The preschool is very quiet these days!  We miss the families and want to keep in touch during the closure.  One small way we are staying connected is by sending out birthday cards and stickers to the students who we don't get to celebrate with in person.

In September we assembled a small packet of learning materials for our preschool and pre-kindergarten families to work on at home.  It was so wonderful to see many of the families who were able to pick up their packets!   Those unable to make the pickup time had the packet delivered to their home.  Our Early Learner families received an email with information on the value of play and some ideas of how they can facilitate learning in their own child's play.

In October we will be collecting small pumpkins (pie pumpkin sized).  We hope to provide each child, early learners through pre-K, with one pumpkin along with some pumpkin exploration ideas.  We will be collecting pumpkins in the Narthex from October 11th-20th.
