VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
To Mars & Beyond!
June 17-21, 2019; 9:00am-Noon
Vacation Bible School will travel To Mars and Beyond! For all children ages 3 years through completed 5th grade.
Join us for an exciting adventure as we explore where God’s power can take us! Registration opens May 1 at holytrinitymelbourne.org. “Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us!” (Ephesians 3:20)
Classes for children age 3 years through the 6th grade are offered from 10:30 - 11:15am, September through May in upstairs Pearson Hall. The classes are divided by age and the curricula are thoughtfully and prayerfully planned to meet the spiritual developmental needs of each age. We therefore ask that children have reached the designated age for each class by September 1.
3 & 4 year olds: The curriculum used in this class, Spark: Activate Faith, is designed with a liturgical flow, centered around the Bible story. It incorporates play, story, hands on activities, and colorful take home pages for each student.
K - 3rd grades: This class uses Godly Play. In the Godly Play classroom, children enter into the stories of God and his people and of His Son Jesus through the use of wonderful story manipulatives, “wondering questions” and self - directed responses.
4th - 6th grades: This class is designed with the “tween” student in mind. Using Group’s Grapple curriculum, students study the Bible from a life application point of view. This is done with discussion, creative activities, and the occasional walk around the Parish to interact with God’s creation. At an age when children are feeling a little awkward as they begin to transition from childhood to being a teenager, we work diligently to let these children know that they are part of the church family and loved by God.
TREASURE KIDS CLUB (TKC): Wednesdays when school is in session
TKC takes places as part of our Whole Church Family Night. TKC is our midweek program for children in VPK – 6th grade. TKC activities will take place after dinner, from 6:30 - 7:45 pm, and include Bible study, games, crafts and music. TKC is a great opportunity to get your kids involved in a faith community where they can build and strengthen positive relationships with Christ and friends. For more information, e-mail KC Crawley, or call 321-723-5272.
Holy Trinity’s nursery is open from 8:30am to 11:15am on Sundays. Infants and toddlers are welcome to play in the nursery while their families participate in worship and Sunday school. Our nursery is conveniently located just off the Gallery. In the crib room you’ll find a peaceful area for babies to sleep and a calm area for nursing. A long distance baby monitor is available. There is also a special area designed for babies who are crawling plus a toddler room equipped with an art center and imaginative play area. Special “nursery” parking places are available in front of the memorial garden. Nursery care for children is also available during other parish events, if requested in advance. Holy Trinity is committed to providing a safe and loving environment for our littlest members.
Sunday Children’s Chapel continues to take place every Sunday during the 9:00am worship service. Children ages 7 and under are invited to follow the cross to chapel following the New Testament lesson. They’ll go to the Nursery where they experience a more interactive lesson, say a children’s creed, and share their own Prayers of the People. They return to the service at The Peace in time to participate in the Eucharist.
