† Children’s Lenten Musical, March 24| 1:30 PM 

This year’s Kidz Lenten Musical tells the story of Palm Sunday and Easter in a unique way! Come support the children of the church as they bring this special seasonal message to life and stay after for the Family foodpack at 2PM.* A grab-and-go treat will be available in the narthex at the end of the performance. Please contact Joyce Click for more information.

† Rock Walk

In this activity, you will take a walk/hike/roll/ride/drive together with friends or family or friends who are like family, paying special attention to certain parts of nature that are often overlooked (dirt, rocks, and soil), but which play prominent roles in the stories of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.

† Dinner Stones with Butter Board

Build a Butter Board appetizer for your Easter dinner! While you wait for the yeast in the Trinity Dinner Stones to take action, whip up three flavored butters to serve alongside your fresh rolls. Be sure to allow enough time to thaw the frozen dough the night before you bake, soften the butter before you mix it up into delicious spreads, and chill a serving platter in the refrigerator for one hour before spreading the flavored butters on top.
