Growing up with Trinity Church
Trinity provides a great community that welcomes children and youth of all ages to learn of God and serve others.
*Please note that our Children's Ministry is currently being conducted digitally on Sunday mornings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join our email list for links and information.*
We have Kids Club, a creative, project oriented program using a hands on approach stressing the concepts of love, gratitude, and service. Every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. children from kindergarten through 2nd grade gather to learn about Jesus, His teachings, the Bible, the church, and worship. Together we sing songs, act out Bible stories, create art projects, and play games related to the lesson of the day. Each new Kids Club member receives a copy of the Spark Story Bible.
Junior Youth is for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and also meets Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Junior Youth each receive their own Bible (Spark NRSV) and together we learn about how Bible lessons relate to our lives. We discuss and learn about the church, the Bible, the liturgy, and the church calendar. We learn through games, crafts, discussion, and service projects.
Both Kids Club and Junior Youth read the same Bible stories each week, based on what is assigned for the day from the Revised Common Lectionary. Each week children in the same household, and their adults attending worship, have all heard the same stories and can discuss them at home together. This also is the basis for a rotation of learning that builds on familiar stories as children grow older. The stories that are first introduced in Kids Club are built upon in age-appropriate ways as they hear the same stories again in Junior Youth.
Trinity youth, in grades 6 through 12, gather on Sunday morning to learn and to explore questions of faith in an accepting and friendly environment. On the first Sunday of the month youth gather in our church kitchen to prepare a meal for people experiencing homelessness. Our youth are involved in regular service projects, retreats, and mission trips. Around age 13 they participate in Rite 13, a special coming-of-age ceremony. Eleventh and twelfth grade youth have the opportunity to go on a pilgrimage. Past trips have been to Iona in Scotland or Corrymeela in Northern Ireland.
