Trinity Sunday

Updated: May 22


The Trinity is a tricky idea to teach. It's one of those ideas that transcends language and thought. We've discussed it a few times in Little Church, and I usually show them a picture I drew of a three leaf clover (thanks St. Patrick). There's a children's book about an Apple (skin, flesh, seeds). A lot of the popular Trinity metaphors break down theologically. Usually they are "good enough" to get the point across (water, ice, steam is another one off the top of my head). Anyway, we'll have fun learning together!

Last week we had a great time and made some Pentecost wall art! It's obvious by the buzz of energy in Little Church that this is the end of the school year. These kinds of activities are great for them to express themselves and don't require a long attention span (God bless school teachers in May, am I right!?).

Anyway, my brain right now is All VBS, All The Time. Don't worry. If your kiddos won't be able to attend, they will still get some of the same lessons on Sundays in the summer! Yay! I love the curriculum so much. Lovingkindness is a Biblical concept and so so so important!

This Sunday we're still on the lectionary (Bible readings for Big Church) plan. Here are some ideas for you throughout the week!

Little Church | May 26, 2024 | Trinity Sunday

Lesson Recap:  Nicodemus wants to understand Jesus, and Jesus says he needs to start over. We learned starting over with water (Baptism) and talked about God’s Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

At home (bedtime, car rides, mealtime etc.):

Pray: Dear God, thank you for being God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for loving us. Amen.

Wonder Together-

·         I wonder why Nicodemus visited Jesus at night time? (I think he just really needed to ask him a question, no matter what time it was!)

·         I wonder how being baptized helps people start over? (Water washes us clean, and it’s almost like being born when we come up out of the water!)

·         I wonder how the Spirit is moving in ways we can’t see? (Think about how the wind blows, we can feel it but we can’t see it.)

·         I wonder if you can teach your family about the Trinity? (Practice the sign of the cross, draw three circles, or use your arms to make interlocking circles)
