Trussville Methodist Kids Ministry

Week of 2.12.2018


Genesis: God Promises Sarah a Son

Genesis 18:1-15; 21:1-6

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1)

Sarah hears God promise she’ll have a son within the next year. Sarah is very old, so she laughs at the idea. But by the next year, she has a son. She names him Isaac, which means laughter, because God brought her laughter. God brings us laughter, too.

Family Together Time

God brings us laughter, so have some fun with your family.

  • Get a roll of transparent tape.
  • Have each person stick long pieces to his or her face so it pulls the skin in different directions. (You can get ideas by doing an Internet search for “Scotch tape faces.”)
  • When you look at each other, you’re sure to laugh.
  • Look in the mirror, too, and laugh at yourself.
  • Share funny things that have happened to you recently, and thank God for laughter.

Talk About This…What’s the funniest YouTube video you’ve seen?

Ash Wednesday 2.14.18

We will not be having our regular Wednesday Kid's activities this week. We encourage our kids to participate with their families in our special Ash Wednesday service at 6:30pm. Childcare will be available for Preschoolers and under.

Pancake supper prepared by our Methodist men begins at 5:15pm in the CLC.

Can't make the evening service? We also have a 6:30am service for you early risers.

Sunday, February 18th is CARE & SHARE

This Sunday, all 5k-5th graders will gather together during the Sunday school hour to fill Care Packages for the children of TEAM. We are still in need of a few items:

25 toothbrushes

38 toothpastes (need sizes larger that dentist samples)

If you can donate any of these please me know at

Preschool Easter Egg Hunt!

We are hosting an Easter Egg Hunt for our preschoolers on Sunday, March 18 during the Sunday school hour. More information coming soon. Interested in helping? Contact Debby Pearson at

Peanut Butter & Jelly Time

On your marks, get set, go!

Children's Ministry is holding a competition for ALL children in Preschool - 5th grade!! We are collecting Peanut Butter & Jelly for TEAM (Trussville Ecumenical Assistive Ministry) through the end of February.

Each Sunday and Wednesday children are asked to bring Peanut Butter & Jelly to their classroom. The group that brings the most by February 25th will have Pizza Party!!

The 3 children that bring in the most will be recognized in a special awards ceremony on Sunday, March 4th during the 8:30 a.m. service!



Because of the three day Presidents Day holiday weekend there are NO children's activities or childcare. See you the 25th! Elementary agers will take a field trip. More details next week!
