Come join the fun as we see how board games can teach lessons from the Bible.  Just like there are rules for playing each of these games, God has given us specific rules for how we are to live. We will explore “Games You Should Play” and “Games You Shouldn’t Play.” We have already begun to brainstorm ways to engage the kids, but we want your ideas, too.  Please contact Leila Denton ldenton@trinityumc.net if you wish to be a part of the summer planning fun.  Sign up now for all the times you can help on Sundays throughout the summer at http://bit.ly/BoardGames930SummerSS .
