Update on Junior Church:

Junior church is returning on May 1st to June 5th for six Sundays. Families have the option of attending in person or participate at home. Children that want to join us in person will begin in the sanctuary seated with the grown up they came with and then head as a group to the auditorium during the Children’s hymn.
If lifestyle makes it easier to follow along at home as a family sign up by April 27th with Rev Rachel (rachel@trinitysummerside.ca) in time to receive your at home package.
 
With the return of Junior Church the CLG Team is looking for volunteers to assist in hosting the school aged children, aged 5-11. If you have six, two, or even one Sunday morning to spare, we would love the help. Anyone 15 and older that is interested speak to Sandee or Rev Rachel.
