Children of all ages are invited to fully participate in our worship services; however we understand that parents may prefer their littlest ones join our professional and loving childcare staff in the Nursery, which is open from 9:00 am until the conclusion of the 10:30am service. Parents are encouraged to pick up their child(ren) from the Nursery after the Prayers of the People so they can join the congregation for communion. 

Hours: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (September - May)
Hours: 10:00 - 11:30 am (June-August)

The nursery and Big-Kid Care is also available for special church events as needed for parents who participate adult formation classes. To inquire if childcare is available for a particular event, please contact Ashley Bond at .

Trinity Episcopal Church invites children PK3-5th grade to enter into a deeper and more playful relationship with God every Sunday during the 10:30 am service. After class, children are led by their Godly Play mentors into the church to join their families for communion. Sometimes we're a little late. 

The Godly Play method is an imaginative way of telling the stories of the Bible using multisensory materials. The stories and lessons are presented "chronologically" and in sync with the liturgical year, within a routine that mirrors the pattern of Christian worship.

The curriculum offers a religious language that deepens a child's knowledge of God through the stories of scripture, lessons about liturgy, and theological reflection called "wondering."

In a setting that surrounds children with stories of faith made visible, each class focuses on one story and the opportunity to wonder aloud about its connection with the child's own life. Children work hands-on with the stories of their choice, learning and reflecting - individually or in small groups - using art materials such as watercolor, collage, or clay. We often close with a "feast" where the children learn how to serve and how to be served. 

As with any spiritual practice, consistency is key. 

When and where do the children gather for Godly Play?

The children are welcomed into the classroom beginning at 10:25 am and class begins at 10:30 am. Please walk your child directly to their respective classroom. A Godly Play mentor will be standing outside of the classroom to greet you, welcome your child, and help them "get ready". Doors open at 10:25 am. Please be on time. 

Godly Play classrooms are divided into three developmentally appropriate age groups:

  • GP1 is our Primary Community: PK3 - K
  • GP2 is our Elementary Community: 1st - 2nd Grade
  • GP3 is our Advanced Elementary Community: 3rd - 5th Grade

The Acolyte Ministry at Trinity Episcopal Church is a vibrant ministry for rising 5th-12th grade youth. Acolytes recognize their service as an offering to God by assisting the clergy and making a contribution to the spiritual life of the congregation. This ministry serves as a youth formation opportunity where students learn and grow together in service to the community. Youth can receive service hours. Contact Ashley Bond if you or a young person you know is looking to serve. As part of our Youth Confirmation Program, all candidates will serve on an Acolyte Team for one year leading up to confirmation.

Support for your Growing Family

Trinity's Guild of the Christ Child (GOTCC) is a ministry that supports growing families with prayers and personal communications prior to a new child’s arrival. We hope to help each family and young child find their place within the Trinity church family.

Do you long to conceive or adopt?

The journey to parenthood can be long and challenging. Let us pray for you. Email Ashley Bond to be added to an internal and private prayer list. 

Are you expecting?

The arrival of a new baby is a joyous and hectic time in each family’s life. As your church family, we share your joy and excitement. We also know that this can be an exhausting, worrisome and confusing time. Please let us know when your family is growing by emailing Ashley Bond, so that we can connect with you, hold you in prayer, and celebrate your child’s arrival.

Your Child's Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is a special time for each family. To have your child baptized at Trinity, one parent should be an active parishioner participating in worship, service, formation, and stewardship at Trinity. It is recommended that the family meet with a member of Trinity's clergy in the months preceding the baptism to prepare as a family. Visit Becoming a Member for more information.

The Nursery: A Place for Our Smallest Members

As parents of small children, whether you are long-time members or visiting with us, you want to have peace of mind that your children are safe and well-cared for while you worship and learn. The nursery serves our youngest members (infant - 3 years) and is located across from Trinity Treasures Gift Shop in the church undercroft. We welcome children every Sunday from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. During the summer months of June, July, and August, the nursery is open for the 10:30 am Sunday service. The nursery is also available for special church events, adult formation classes, and as needed. To inquire if childcare is available for a particular event, please contact Ashley Bond at .
