Ministry with Children
A Service for Families with Young Children is offered Friday evenings about twice a month. The dates for 2016-2017 are as follows: October 28, 2016, November 18, 2016, December 2 and 16, 2016, January 13 and 27, 2017, February 10 and 24, 2017, March 10 and 24, 2017, April 7 and 21, 2017, May 12 and 26, 2017, and June 9, 2017.
On Friday evenings, Children’s Choir begins at 5:30 PM, dinner is at 6:00 PM and worship is at 6:30 PM. Children of all ages are welcomed and expected. A “soft space” in the church has quiet toys for toddlers, who are welcome to come over to join the older children as they feel able. The children enjoy a highly interactive service with songs, movement, drawing and “jobs” for everyone in attendance.
On Sundays at 10:00 AM, the children meet each Sunday in the Upper Varian Hall for Sunday School. The Sunday School Teachers bring the children into the Church to join their parents during The Peace so that they may receive Communion together. Currently, Trinity Sunday School uses a curriculum from The Episcopal Church’s Lesson Plans for Small Congregations and some Godly play lessons as well.
The children enjoy special occasions, like the Easter Egg Hunt, the Christmas Pageant, and a visit from The Three Kings at Epiphany.
