WierdAnimals VBS

Sign Up Today for Vacation Bible School 2014 ~ July 21 – 25

Consider being a VBS volunteer! VBS registration forms are available.

HMMM . . . WEIRD ANIMALS? What an interesting VBS theme.  Want to know more about it?

VBS will be from July 21-25, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and is open to children who will be four before October 1, 2014 (and who are potty trained) through those who will be entering grade 5 in the fall.  There is a $20.00 registration fee per child, with a maximum fee of $40.00 per family.  If needed, a limited number of scholarships are available.

Our VBS theme this year is Group’s “Weird Animals:  Where Jesus’ Love is One-of-a-Kind.” During our exciting, action-packed week together, the children, through daily sessions of worship, Bible adventure, music, craft activities, mission projects, recreation, Kid Vids and snack time, will learn that...

  • Even when you’re left out . . . Jesus loves you!
  • Even when you’re different . . . Jesus loves you!
  • Even when you don’t understand . . .  Jesus loves you!
  • Even though you do wrong . . . Jesus loves you!
  • Even when you’re afraid . . . Jesus loves you!

We have once again tailored a program specifically to meet the needs of our Pre-K children.  They will meet jointly with the older children during our opening worship, then proceed to the lower level of the main building where they will enjoy activities especially planned for them.  They will also join the older children for the daily closing worship.

We’d like to invite all parents to attend the closing worship that is scheduled to take place daily in the sanctuary at 11:40 a.m. in order to catch a glimpse of what your child has learned that day! Interested in volunteering? Click here to register as a volunteer online - it is quick and easy!

Be sure to click over to our special VBS page that offers information on the logistics of each day - timing, entrance areas, snacks to send, dress suggestions, fun songs that will be learned, and more. In addition, read about the 2014 VBS t-shirts that are provided, the certified therapy dogs that will visit as an example of "unconditional love" and find out about the VBS community fun fair that occurs on Wednesday night for your entire family. Lastly, read the background information on our wierd animals theme and what our VBS program strives to offer for our children attending this year. There is a great deal to be excited about for VBS this summer at Trinity Church. Do join us!

Please be sure to register your child early since we must end registration on Sunday, July 13.  We will not be able to accept registrations at the door on Monday, July 21.

Parent's Group Offerings

Sacred Parenting

Parenting a child is an in-depth course on spiritual formation, expressly designed by God to shape your soul in ways you cannot imagine.  What if one of God's primary intentions for you as a parent isn't about successfully raising perfect chldren, but about you becoming more holy?  Sacred Parenting helps you look at parenting from a different perspective. With the help of a video featuring author Gary Thomas, we'll explore a roadmap of spiritual growth through the children that God has given us to parent. Sacred Parenting will help you learn how God can transform dirty diapers, a toddler's tantrums, and a teenager's silence, in order to transform you into a person who reflects the image of Christ.


Dates: 1st Thursday of the month

Time: 9:45 - 11:30 a.m.

Location: Chancel Choir Room (Room 108)

Led by: Donna Torkos (908) 684-8284 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
