We want to partner with you in the spiritual growth of your child and believe that children should be a part of all we do at Trinity!
We take security very seriously at our church. All our youth and children workers are background checked and go through a screening process, as well as completing Abuse Awareness Training. Read our Policies and Procedures around the safety of Trinity children and youth. Trinity ECC is a MinistrySafe Member.
Infants & Toddlers
Our littlest ones are loved and nurtured by our wonderful nursery volunteers. They will be cuddled, played with, fed, changed, and prayed over during their time in the nursery. Nursery is offered for all of our services, even our intergenerational ones. However, if you prefer to keep your child with you, your infant and/or toddler is welcome in our worship service. If you need to nurse, we have several, private areas for you to do so.
Pre-K through 6th Grade
We want your child to grow in their relationship with God and with others! For this reason, we begin our worship services with our children so that they can be a part of the rhythm of worship and because their presence is important. After the Scripture readings and before the sermon, children Pre-K through 6th grade depart to Children’s Church where they will dig into God’s Word together with one of our wonderful Children’s Church volunteers. They will examine the same Scriptures as the adults but in an age-appropriate way that speaks to them. They will read a Bible story and have time to imagine what it was like, ask questions, and cultivate the practice of listening as the Holy Spirit illuminates the Word. In Children’s Church, they will also spend time praying together, playing a game, having a snack, and singing together.
Confirmation (7th & 8th Grade)
Our 7th and 8th graders go through a two-year confirmation course that helps them understand and articulate their faith through the Bible and its application to real-life situations. It is our hope and prayer that through confirmation, middle and high school age students will develop a first-hand faith in Jesus Christ, not because their parents do, but because Jesus has become real to them. This two-year process culminates in a Confirmation Worship Service where our Confirmands make a public confession of faith, share their story, and are welcomed into the church as full members. For more information on confirmation, please reach out to Pastor Alicia.
Every fourth Sunday of the month we have an intergenerational worship service in which the children worship with us the entire time and participate in our service through offering prayers, helping to lead liturgy, reading Scripture, ushering, and singing. We believe that children are an integral part of our church and our worship and it’s important that they feel connected to the larger church. Although we set aside one Sunday a month for intergenerational worship, your children are welcome in our services on any Sunday!
Vacation Bible School
