Children @ Trinity

Trinity's Kids' Ministry exists to help children to:

                                                       Know God

                                                            Grow Closer to God

                                                            Show God's love

Our Kid's Ministry meets weekly on Sundays for Children's Church
during the 9:15 am service and Sunday School at 10:30am.

We also meet with our community friends for Kids' Club on Tuesdays at 3:45pm.

Throughout the year we hold many family-oriented events to encourage relationships within the community and our church family.  Check out the different on-going ministries below-but also check back often for seasonal events!

We would love to help your children & family get connected to our kids' ministry!  Contact our Family Ministry Director, Ruth To for more information.

Children's Church-Pre-K & Elementary ages

We believe that children are an important part of our church family!  Each Sunday, all children ages 4 and above start in the sanctuary to worship together as a family through music and prayer.  Children are dismissed from the sanctuary before the sermon and then gather together in the Fellowship Hall for a time of age-appropriate learning and growth.  Each week's lesson is full of hands-on activities and adventure!


We provide care for our youngest attenders (ages birth through 3-year-olds) during our 9:15am service.  All of our nursery volunteers are trained and background checked on a regular basis.  This is a safe and fun space for our youngest children to play and be cared for while parents/guardians are in worship.

sunday school

Sunday School for children is offered at 10:30 every Sunday.  

Sunday School is a laid-back time of learning and fun.  Kids' experience a time of learning, art, snack, and play.  

Ages 4 through 4th grade are welcome.

Preteen ministry

Preteen students (3rd-5th graders) gather together every other month (on the odd months) for a time of fun and friendship!

Vacation Bible School

Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip ahead, level up, and play to win! Twists & Turns will be a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives.

Family Fun Nights

Periodically throughout the year, we will organize Family Fun Nights so that families can have a free opportunity to get out of the house and interact with each other.

Some of the things we have done in the past are ice cream socials, movie nights, drive-in movie in the church parking lot, giant board games, and more.  When these events are planned they will be announced at church and published in our newsletter.  They will also be announced on social media. Keep you eye out for our next fun event for your family.

Easter egg hunt

Every Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter), we hold an Easter Egg Hunt for our families and the community.  

It begins with stations with different crafts and activities for the kids to go to.  There are also snacks available for FREE.  It ends with the Egg Hunt where the kids leave with lots of goodies.

This is for all age kids and another way that we show our love to our neighbors.


Trinity loves the community it is in, and wants to provide a fun and safe evening in October for families.  Members of our church bring their cars, get into costume, and pass out candy from their decorated trunks to all of the costumed children who venture out.  In addition to candy, we also provide free hotdogs, beverages, and other snacks.  We also have an animal petting area.  This is one way we love to give to our neighbors and enjoy the company of good friends.

Christmas Program

Children, from PK-5th grade from both Trinity and North Union, present a program portraying the story of the nativity during the 9:15 worship service the Sunday prior to Christmas.  This program is prepared and practiced on Sunday mornings during Advent. This is a long standing tradition that has seen generations of students perform for their families.  The youth and tweens, adult choir, and hand bell choir may also join in on this program, exclaiming the birth of Jesus.  It is a wonderful time of celebration.
