The Faith Chest houses the spiritual treasures, given by church and family to a child, to be used to nurture faith-at-home practices throughout their childhood years. It is a wooden box with a lid, and a tray that fits inside, to hold items of spiritual significance such as, the baptismal candle, devotionals, Bibles, music, Sunday School/VBS projects, etc… The Chest becomes a storehouse of resources that families can use to nurture faith in Jesus Christ!
Faith Chest Assembly Classes are open to all who desire to put a kit together. No specific skills are necessary. There are 5 opportunities to assemble a chest throughout the year. They occur on a Sunday in either January, March, May, September, and November from 11-12p. The materials for the faith chest cost $50. Whatever you are able to donate towards that cost may be paid to Trinity Lutheran. Please don’t allow finances to keep you from making a faith chest for your child. We will cover any amount that is above your ability to pay.
