Trinity Kids

The mission of Trinity Kids can be summed up in three words: Faith, Families, and Future.  

Faith: We believe that children are gifts from the Lord, that God desires a personal relationship with each one, and that all children are spiritually capable of meeting, knowing, loving, and following Jesus Christ. We want to help strengthen the faith of children with all programs and projects we do in Trinity Kids, recognizing that each child and teen is in a different place in his/her individual walk with God. 

Families: Our vision is to partner with parents to raise up children and teens who love God with all their hearts, minds, and strength; serve others as themselves; and represent Christ in their world. We strive to train, involve, and equip parents to be the primary disciple-makers of their children, and encourage families to "adopt" children who may not have adult Christians in their lives. 

Future: We will encourage children to bring glory to Jesus Christ and represent Him in the world by sharing the Good News and compassionately serving the community and the world as we harness their energy and enthusiasm in special projects and programs. Children are our brothers and sisters in Christ, whom we will help to grow into mature disciples who will impact future generations.

Thinking about visiting Sunday School, or sending your child to the Nursery/Children's or Kids' Message for the first time? Register here!

Welcome! Please send Julia an email at childrensministry@trinityefc.com, so she can tell you more specifics about our check-in procedure, class locations, and introduce you to the teachers/volunteers! We understand that sometimes it is difficult for children to enter a new class, especially for toddlers or preschoolers. Parents of little ones are welcome to stay with their child in the Sunday School class with a Visitor name-tag. However, after a month, we will ask parents who desire to stay in the classroom to fill out a volunteer application and complete a necessary background check to maintain a safe and secure environment for all children. 

Sunday School

9:10 am - 10:15 am  

Toddlers through 8th grade 

Our Sunday School program runs September-June. We organize and prioritize our Sunday School ministry by focusing on HEARTS:

Hearing the good news of Jesus Christ each week

Engaging, age-appropriate Bible lessons and activities

Active worship for children

Relationships fostered with committed adults and peers at church

Training, involving, and equipping parents to disciple their children at home

Serving the community and the world

Birth- PreK classes use the First Look curriculum and Kindergarten - 8th Grade classes use The Gospel Project curriculum

Childcare

10:30 am - 11:35 pm
0-2 yrs: Room 3
3-4 yrs: Room 1

During our worship service, we offer nursery care for newborns - 4 years old in fully-equipped preschool classrooms. It is our joy to provide care for your children! Our electronic check-in system allows for secure drop-off and pick-up of the children, volunteer identification, and attention to allergy/medical alerts. We use a pager system in case parental attention is needed during the service.

Kids Message

Approximately 10:50 am - 11:35 pm, every other week

PreK - K: Room 5
1st-5th Grade: Downstairs classroom

We welcome children of any age in our worship service, and also offer Kids Message (PreK - 5th grade) every other week as an option for families at Trinity Church. On these weeks, the children worship with their families at the beginning of the service, and can meet their teachers in the foyer after the offering. Parents pick up their child(ren) from the classrooms at the end of the worship service.

In the Kids Message, consistent teachers offer age-appropriate lessons and activities to reinforce Biblical knowledge and help children grow in their faith. 

The fall 2017 dates for the Kids Message are: Sept. 17, Oct. 1, Oct. 15, Oct. 29, Nov. 12, Nov. 26 (PreK-K only), Dec. 17, and Dec. 31 (PreK-K only). The dates are also published in the church bulletin, as well as a dismissal reminder.
