Amen! Amen is our answer to those promises. Amen is each of us lifting our voice to glorify God. Amen is standing up and saying, “Here I am God! I heard your promise, and I accept it. Thank you for your Yes!” Over the first seven weeks of the school year we are going to focus on our 7 core values here at Trinity. (1) JESUS IS OUR MESSAGE – We are most committed to the preaching of Jesus. (2) PEOPLE ARE OUR HEART – Our heart is for ALL people. All people are loved by Jesus. (3) GENEROSITY IS OUR

KRYSTAL PEREZ

I'VE BEEN SERVING IN TCKIDS ABOUT 2 YEARS. INITIALLY I STRUGGLED WITH THE IDEA OF BEING A PART OF THIS TEAM BECAUSE I WAS VERY COMFORTABLE KEEPING TO MYSELF & STAYING IN MY WELL-DEFINED COMFORT ZONES. BUT I RISKED IT AND THE TEAM WAS SO WARM & WELCOMING THAT I INSTANTLY BECAME PART OF A FAMILY. IN THESE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS GOD HAS USED THIS TEAM – THIS FAMILY – TO PUSH & STRETCH ME IN WAYS I COULDN'T HAVE IMAGINED. I DISCOVERED GIFTS THAT I DIDN'T KNOW I HAD – LIKE A FLAIR FOR ACTING & A LOVE FOR BEHIND THE SCENES ADMINISTRATIVE WORK.

word find.

MY FAVORITE PART OF ANY TCKIDS SERVICE IS WORSHIP. THE KIDS LOVE TO DANCE & RAISE THEIR HANDS & SIMPLY SURRENDER TO GOD – IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING. BEING A PART OF THESE KIDS' LIVES & THEIR FAMILIES' IS AN HONOR & BRINGS ME SO MUCH JOY! I'M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT GOD IS DOING IN TCKIDS IN THE COMING MONTHS!
