Promised Land is an outreach program open to children in the local community held at Trinity most Thursdays from 3:30-5:45 p.m. from September through February. Promised Land focuses on Bible lessons that teach us how to be good citizens and uses drama, music, crafts and games to reinforce those lessons. At Promised Land, children learn how to help others in their community. One way we strive to teach this is by taking the kids out into the community and doing service projects, such as yard cleaning for elders, a Thanksgiving Food Drive, and cleaning up Borough Park to name a few. Another unique experience at Promised Land is the family style meal that is served from 5:15-5:45 p.m. This meal is hand made by loving volunteers and the children sit together with volunteers and share stories about their day…it is truly a “family” experience. Disciples receiving the appropriate clearances have the opportunity to greatly impact students’ lives through Promised Land. The relationships that develop between the children and volunteer disciples are an important part of the program. Children experience the love of God through our caring adult and teen helpers. The program is open to children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Children are met at Nye Elementary School at the close of school and walked to the church. If you have a child that attends morning Kindergarten, or a child that attends another school that would like to attend Promised Land, arrangements can be made for them to join the program. Registration is required for Promised Land and a $20 fee covers the cost of meals for the year. Registration forms may be picked up at the church office.
