Children's Formation


Children's Formation

Each child at Holy Trinity is encouraged and supported in the exploration of his or her own spirituality in an age-appropriate way. Our warm and welcoming environment creates a safe place for children to come to know God.

Sunday Nursery Care and Children's Chapel

Currently, due to construction, we are not be able to have Nursery Care. Families with young children are invited to worship in All Saints Chapel this summer where children can move around and make noise. We apologize for the inconvenience, but our programs for children and families will be back in the fall in newly updated facilities. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. 

Children in Church

Children are welcome at all services, but parents who would like their children to have more freedom of movement are invited to bring the entire family to All Saints Chapel, which is generally broadcast on a large screen from the main sanctuary. This allows parents to view and hear the service and children to wander and/or vocalize without disturbing adults in the Church. Families can then come into the Church to participate in communion.

Communion Education

Any baptized Christian can receive communion in the Episcopal Church. It is up to parents and their children to decide what age is appropriate. Each January, a member of the clergy and the Christian Education Coordinator lead a two-session, family-friendly conversation about the Eucharist and its symbols. The sessions, held during the Sunday School hour, can serve as an introduction to the Eucharist or as a refresher. Children are invited to attend with one or both parents. Although parents and children are encouraged to attend both sessions, each session will stand alone. For more information contact Marjorie Donnelly at , or 336-272-6149 ext. 221.

Special Events

Throughout the year, Holy Trinity holds special events for children and their families. Events include an All Saints’ Day celebration, Advent wreath making, Los Posadas, a Christmas pageant, Mardi Gras Carnival, preparation of ashes for Ash Wednesday, and an Easter egg hunt. For more information, go to the events calendar.

Vacation Bible School

This summer, due to construction, we willnot be able to have Vacation Bible School.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.
