Children and Youth Formation


Children and Youth Formation

Holy Trinity's Children’s and Family Ministries seek to nurture your child’s relationship with God through opportunities that introduce the life, love, and example of Jesus. Our aim is to partner with families in the parent/child journey of discovery towards a life of discipleship and faith. Holy Trinity offers a full range of Christian Formation opportunities for families. For more information, contact:

Sunday Morning Family Worship Options
Children are always welcome in worship at Holy Trinity. Green worship bags in the Narthex contain a variety of quiet ways to occupy small hands. Please return the bags and their reusable contents to the baskets after the service.

Nursery Care: The nursery for birth through four-year Pre-K is located on the first floor of the Parish House in Room 105 and is open on Sundays 8:45 – 11:15 a.m. (during the 9 a.m. service and the Sunday school hour). During Sunday school, children will sing and listen to a Bible story from the Gospel lesson for that Sunday. Our paid childcare providers, who work as Holy Trinity Day School teachers during the week, are supplemented as needed by volunteers. No pre-registration is required. Enter from the back parking lot by the door under the breezeway, and the nursery is to your left.

Children’s Chapel: Offered Sundays at the 9 a.m. service during the program year for children four-year Pre-K through 3rd grade. Parents may drop their children off 8:45 - 9 a.m. in Room 211 of the Parish House. Children hear a story, sing songs, and pray. They take turns serving as acolytes, crucifer, and ushers. Please have your children bring money for the offering, which is added to the offering in the church. Children attending Children’s Chapel join their parents in the church at the Peace for Eucharist.

Children’s Sunday School Classes: Sunday school classes for kindergarten – fifth grade meet 10:15 - 11 a.m. on the second floor of the Parish House. Both classes will gather to sing with Mr. Riley in Room 211 before moving to their individual classes: kindergarten – 2nd grade in Room 209, and 3rd- 5th grade in Room 211. Each of the classes is led by two adult volunteers and use a combination of “Feasting on the Word,” a lectionary-based curriculum, and Godly Play, a Montessori-based curriculum.

Communion Milestone for K, 1st, and 2nd Graders: On Sunday, Oct. 1, and Sunday, Oct. 8, at 10:15 a.m., the children will have special lessons on the Eucharist during their regular Sunday school class. On Sunday, Oct. 15, at 10:15 a.m., in All Saints Chapel, Fr. David Umphlett and Marjorie Donnelly will lead a family-friendly conversation with the children and their parents about the Eucharist and its symbols. The preparation culminates on Sunday, Oct. 22, at the 9 a.m. service with a Celebration of Communion for the children and their parents followed by a children’s Sunday School party.
