The Trinity children's choir with director Elise!
Trinity takes our commitment to children and families and our youth seriously, and we offer a number of programs to nurture faith development for parents and children as well as offerings that are designed to meet the special needs of teenagers.

These programs include our Godly Play program for children ages 4 through third grade.  The program is based on Montessori principles, and seeks to engage children with key stories of the Bible in a way that honors the child's own relationship with God, imagination and creativity.  The program is intended to meet children where they are and encourage wondering questions and exploration rather than simply providing ready-made answers.  

On the last Sunday of the month (September - May) we offer a children's liturgy at 5:05 pm followed by our Faith Full Families program which includes a potluck dinner and a family activity. 


Children in fourth, fifth and sixth grade are part of our Godly Explorers program, which is currently being redesigned.  We have recognized that at this age, children usually find Godly Play less helpful, and so we are designing a program that will meet their specific needs.  They also begin each Sunday in church with their parents, and then move to their class after the Children's Ritual.

Trinity offers a growing youth program for young people in seventh grade through high school. Currently, the group meets as one at 5:30 on Sunday evenings, sometimes on campus and sometimes in activities away from campus.  The program is growing, and we anticipate separating the middle school and high school groups in two different sessions on Sundays.

In addition, Trinity offers a Faithful Families program to engage parents with their young children once a month at 5:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon, and a number of special outreach and other activities throughout the year.
