Nursery: 6 weeks to age 4
We offer nursery care for infants and children through age four. The nursery provides care during Sunday morning activities and other special times. The nursery is open each Sunday from 9:30 am to 11:30 pm or at other designated times for special services. All those in the nursery join the congregation at the peace to participate in Holy Communion.
Children's Chapel: All ages
At the 10:00 am service we offer Children’s Chapel for all who would like to attend. Those who wish attend follow the leader out after the Gospel lesson, and return to the nave at the Peace.
Godly Play: 3 years old - 5th Grade
Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Godly Play classes at Trinity meet Sundays at 10:00 am during the academic school year.
Connect: 6th & 7th Grade
Connect takes tweens on a journey through the Old Testament and into the New Testament, exploring the connections between several stories each week. Connect classes meet Sundays at 10:00 am, in the undercroft, during the academic school year.
Synthesis: 8th & 9th Grade
Synthesis class at Trinity builds on the Bible stories learned in elementary school and prepares youth for Confirmation. Students are active participants and volunteers in worship - they serve in many ways including; lectors, ushers, acolytes, singing in the Youth Choir, and behind the scenes. They explore:
Our Corporate Life in Christ: Baptism, Eucharist, and the Easter Vigil
Our Personal Life in Christ: Daily Office, Reading the Bible, and what it means to live our own personal life as baptized Christians
Confirmation Preparation: Creed, The Lord's Prayer, and Loving our Neighbors
Trinity's Synthesis Curriculum is NOW available as a free resource for use in all Episcopal churches! Synthesis Curriculum Page
