Sermon Title: "The Mystery of the Trinity"

Scripture Reading: John 16:12-15

TRINITY BRACELET – To help the children remember that the trinity is 3 in 1, have them make a bracelet that contains three strands. There are various ways to do this and with various types of material. You can use whatever you have on hand – yarn, ribbon, string, leather strands, elastic, etc. Tie three pieces together at one end; then, if you have any beads or charms you could let them decorate the strands and then tie them together at the other end. Then tie both ends together (or use hooks if you have them). If you have older children that can braid they could also do that. Different ways to make them…


Three in One game: Using the idea of the old game of trying to drop a clothespin in a bottle, give the children three objects (pennies, pebbles, small blocks, etc) and see if they can get all three into a jar or vase. Give them three tries and if they don’t get all three move on to the next person.

The Three Leaf Clover: This is another analogy of the trinity. It is a simple analogy – each leaf is part of the Godhead…Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is the entire clover. Maybe you even have some clovers outside that you could bring in to share!

Snack: Sliced apples will make a good snack for this lesson. Slice the apples leaving the skin and the core intact. This will provide another three in one analogy for the trinity. (The skin, flesh, and the core.)
