Worship at 8:30 or 10:30 am
Children, youth and families are always welcome and encouraged to attend worship at both services. At both entrances to the sanctuary, Worship Activity Folders are available for children. In the summertime, children may especially enjoy the 8:30 am service outside in the beautiful garden courtyard. At other times of the year, children and youth participate in worship for special Sundays and holy days in a variety of ways. A Children's Message is shared for young children during both services.
Faith Formation happens in a variety of exciting ways on Sundays including meaningful worship.
After the 8:30 worship, Sunday School starts at 9:30 am from September through early June. Sunday School is offered in a more traditional classroom with many creative twists. Children and youth, ages preschool through 8th grade, study the Bible, develop Christian friendships, engage in activities that help make connections from every day life to our Christian faith and United Methodist heritage. Special themes bring the Bible to life throughout the year. Youth explore the Bible through movies and special projects. Trinity has wonderful, caring, Christian adults who serve by teaching the children and youth and sharing their faith in vibrant, life-giving ways.
During the 10:30 am worship, young children preschool through 3rd grade are invited to attend Godly Play, which teaches the Bible using an interactive approach encouraging listening, praying, playing and singing. The Godly Play classroom is located on the 2nd floor in room 211 (up the stairs to the right of the coat racks and past the mural tree). Parents or other designated adults pick up their child following worship. During the 10:30 worship, youth 4th through 7th grade are invited to Faith in 30! which offers short lessons on faith in a fun and engaging classroom setting. Youth re-enter worship in time for the Passing of the Peace.
On Communion Sundays, children and youth return to the sanctuary during the Doxology to participate in Communion with their families.
