The Bumbershoot
The purpose of children's ministry at TPC is to give specific thought and attention to the way children grow in their understanding of Christ's Kingdom and what membership in that Kingdom entails.


DRAMA CAMP: June 4-9; Registration is now open to the public. Pick up your registration form at church or click here to download the registration from from the website. Also, be sure to pick up flyers to give to friends you'd like to invite.

SERVE MURFREESBORO:  This Saturday, April 14, is an opportunity to serve our community. Join us at 8am for breakfast at Trinity. Then we will head out in groups to Central Magnet School, Doors of Hope, and Murfreesboro Parks to do yard work from 9am - noon. Tasks for every age group will be available. 

T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST: Inspire this year's Drama Camp T-Shirt. Designs can be drama-themed or based on the theme verse of our ministry: 1 Cor. 10:31. Turn in a hard copy at the office, or email your design to by this Sunday, April 15. (Shirts will use only one color)



Do you know Jesus? Sometimes we think if we had lived back when Jesus did we would understand him and be able to follow him better. But what about the disciples? They were with Jesus for 3 years and did not really know him. They completely misunderstood what he was doing. How do you think they could spend all that time with him and not realize who he really was? The story in Luke 24:13-35 helps us understand how people today and, even the disciples who were with Jesus, could misunderstand who He is.

The two disciples in this passage, who had been Jesus' friends, didn't recognize Jesus as He was walking with them on the road. They missed him completely until two things happened: They heard him explain The Story and they watched him break the bread and serve. 

You see, just like the disciples, we can be doing lots of good things - coming to church, following laws, being angry about things that are wrong and wanting to make them right - but until we recognize Jesus IN the Story of Scripture and IN the Meal He gave, all that knowledge will not change our life. Do you know Jesus? Are you listening to Jesus and seeing him in the stories of Scripture? Are you seeing him in the bread and wine at the meal he gave? You will know the answer to these questions if your life and words are telling others the Story of your Servant King.


Pray for our missionaries Pete & Ruth Mitchell who will be visiting Trinity this Sunday.

Children's Questions or prayer requests can be placed in the box on the Children's Table outside the sanctuary.
