St. James “Faith & Fun” Program
Now on Wednesdays
Beginning in September, our “SUNDAY” School has been moved to Wednesday night. Confirmation will meet from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and “Faith & Fun” will begin at 5:30 pm. HELPERS of all ages are needed! Please speak with Sheri Sorensen or Amy Kent if you could lend a helping hand – helping kids follow Jesus is a great joy!!
The Children’s Program at St. James Trinity is alive and very well. Children of many ages enjoy learning Bible stories, making crafts, participating in games, playing percussion instruments, and singing for the congregation. Faith & Fun is now on Wednesdays starting at 5:30.

SINGING IS FUN, FUN, FUN!!
Wednesday “Faith and Fun” is loaded with opportunities for children to grow in faith and to have fun at the same time! One part of each Wednesday’s activities includes SINGING! The children, under the musical leadership of Brian Kent and Joan Schiefelbein, play percussion instruments as they sing both children’s songs and old familiar tunes like Amazing Grace and Peace Like a River. They especially enjoy action songs where they can raise their arms and spin about as they sing their praise. “I love it when they know a song, like it, and just sing loudly,” said Joan. “Their favorite song that we did for Christmas was Go Tell It on the Mountain.” The number of children in attendance varies from week to week, but one thing remains constant…. they have FUN as they MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD!
Mother’s Day/Father’s Day Recognition
The children of St. James Trinity offered their voices and talents in thankfulness for loving parents, who care for them and teach them to know Jesus.
On Mother’s Day, the children participated in various parts of the liturgy by reading prayers and Bible verses, helping to collect a noisy “coin” offering, and even assisting in the Benediction. The children sang a song with the adult choir which joyfully expressed their gladness at being with their moms in the house of the Lord.
Children’s Christmas Program
At the Children’s Christmas Program this year, guests included the Holy Family, several sheep, a donkey, angels, a story narrator, three wise men, and others. Children recited verses, the narrator told the nativity story, the angels sang, and there was a joint choir song with both the children and the adult choir. The chancel was glowing with beautiful artwork and wonderful costumes made by the Faith and Fun staff/helpers. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to delight in the joy of the Christmas story as shared by the children. Thank you one and all for sharing your gifts!
A very special visitor, FloyAnn from Hatchville, also comes on a regular basis to help teach the children through her story telling and ability to find humor and meaning in God’s grace. Here she is clucking a story about faith!
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to Sunday School to meet other kids and have a good time while learning about God.
