Children & Youth at Trinity
Who is the Youth Group?
Our youth group (called EYC, or Episcopal Church Community) is made up of 6th-12th grade students with a desire to participate in many work and play activities. We are on a mission to spread the love of Christ through our actions. Come join us! We also enjoy several outings throughout the year!
Spiritual formation is a large part of what we do in our youth activities. No matter our daily activity, there is a spiritual aspect tied in. Ultimately this will help our youth grow and nurture a spiritual relationship with God that will help them, not just through their time in youth group, but through the entirety of their lives.
What is offered for children at Trinity?
Our children at Trinity are most welcome! From 9:30-10:15am on Sunday mornings, children up to 5th grade are invited to Sunday School. This takes place in the classrooms beneath Cox Hall. They have a great time!
During worship, children are welcome to remain in the church service with their parents. If they wish, during the 10:30 service, there is an opportunity for children to follow the cross out to Children's Chapel. In Children's Chapel, they learn about how to sit in big church, complete with a Gospel reading, Children's sermon, prayers, and music. Many children enjoy this time to move a bit, and all will come back to join their parents at the Passing of the Peace (halfway through the service).
Also, during worship, children's coloring bags are offered when you enter church. Please feel free to take one to use during the service.
Are there opportunities for parents?
Yes! We have several opportunities for parents on Sundays and other days of the week. On Sundays, the Christian Parenting group meets regularly from 9:30am-10:15, while children are in Sunday School. Parents are often asked to help with service activities, trips, Sunday School, and church activities, outside of Sunday morning worship.
