We're excited to CONNECT, LEARN & GROW together!

 We believe in bringing together kids to build the foundations of lasting and deep faith.

Trinity Kids encompasses infants to 5th graders and offers a variety of programs – from traditional Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, to Kids Clubs and summer camps.

Our goal is simple: to help kids meet Jesus, know His love for them, and learn to walk as His disciples.

Sunday School

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Infants - Kindergarten

Our staff of caring and trained caregivers welcome your child to the classroom where they are loved, cared for and accepted. Children age 3 thru kindergarten will enjoy age-appropriate Sunday school lessons, songs, games and crafts that bring the Bible to life!

Sunday School

ELEMENTARY

1st - 5th Grade

Children in Grades 1-4 begin Sunday School in their grade specific classrooms. After time building relationships in a small group, they head to a large group format where they worship, learn important Bible lessons and participate in group games. They end their time back in their Sunday School classroom with their small group.

Children in Grade 5 also begin Sunday School in their classroom where they have a unique opportunity to build a small group community to deepen their faith while preparing for the transition to middle school.

Children in Grades 1-5 sign in at the kiosk outside the Sanctuary and then attend the worship service with their family. Before the sermon, children are released from service and meet their Sunday School teachers who take them to their grade level classrooms where they build small group community and learn through Bible lessons and games.

Curriculum

Trinity Kids (3yrs-4th grade) uses the TRU curriculum. The age-appropriate lessons explore scriptures chronologically. The lessons are God-focused and allow children to experience the Holy Spirit through worship experiences.  “TRU is a spiritually-forming, parent-empowering curriculum that equips children, leaders, and families to know Jesus and live out a vibrant lifetime faith” (TRU curriulum).

Trinity Kids 5th grade uses The New City Catechism by Timothy Keller. “Catechism” means to teach or instruct, and this unique curriculum comprises 52 questions and answers about what we believe. We conclude the year with the memorization of The Apostles’ Creed.

Milestones:

Equipping children and parents on their journey of faith.

Kindergarten is a special year for both children and parents. We want to equip parents and children with tools that are essential to a lifelong relationship with Jesus. During this Milestone, parents will present the Jesus Storybook Bible. This age appropriate Bible and will be used for church, home and daily Bible reading. We encourage children to bring their Bibles to church each Sunday and become active worshippers in Sunday school.

Our first graders discover the importance of prayer. They will learn to memorize the Lord’s Prayer and take time to study the Sermon on the Mount. The first grade leaders will guide the children through opportunities to discover ACTS – adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication.

The second graders receive their very own Adventure Bibles. While preparing for Bible Sunday, the children will gain knowledge of how the Bible was written, how to use the Bible for studying and applying the Scriptures to everyday life.

The third graders will have hands-on time where teachers and parents participate in teaching about baptism and communion. The children will have an opportunity to partake in communion with the greater church community. In spring, they will discover the connection between Communion and Passover.

The fourth grade class will discover what it means to be “Living Biblically.” This Milestone teaches stewardship and the commandments. The stewardship Milestone partners with Thrivent Financial to demonstrate the importance of taking care of the resources God has entrusted to their care.

The fifth grade class will finish the year knowing and memorizing the Apostles’ Creed. This Milestone, in conjunction with their The New City Catechism curriculum, will be foundational in an ever-changing world.
