Children

At Trinity, children and their parents find a place where they can experience the holy, learn the sacred stories, build friendships, and practice spiritual rituals at church that they can replicate at home. Like adults, children need to find words, rituals, stories and silence to experience the world of the Spirit within and around them. Trinity’s Children’s Ministry seeks to offer the kind of spiritual support to children, parents, and families that equips them to recognize and delight in the Spirit both within them and around them.

Enjoy the church service with the peace of mind that your child or children are having fun in the nursery. The nursery is open every Sunday from 9:00 – 11:30 am (during the program year, September – May), and in the summer months 9:00 - 10:30 am.  

Our warm, sunny nursery is staffed by senior high members of our congregation. Each staff member has completed the Episcopal Church’s Safe Church training so they are able to provide a healthy, safe, and nurturing environment for Trinity’s youngest members.  

The nursery has a toy or activity for every child’s interest: from farm animals, to cars, tool benches, books, puzzles, doll houses, and art supplies. Parents are asked to check-in their child when they drop them off.  

At Trinity, children are also welcome in, and invited to attend, Sunday worship.  “Better the sounds of children during the service, than the silence of a dying church!” we like to say. The Trinity community welcomes children to participate in all worship alongside their families, or other members of the congregation.  

In the main Sanctuary to the side of the altar is a large rug for children as an alternative to sitting in the pew. Soft toys and books are available for quiet play. Pews near the rug are meant for parents for close proximity to their children. We also have Children’s Bibles on hand, next to the baptismal font, and children are invited to follow along with the scripture readings using this colorful and engaging book.  Nursery Letter
