We as Trinity Episcopal Church Family Ministries aspire to build relationships in order to create a faith community that is welcoming and engaging to the Trinity Family at all stages of life.
Trinity welcomes all children and youth to participate in Trinity's Sunday School program. Nursery care is available during 10:00 am Sunday Services and select church events. (Parents receive a pager in case the Nursery Care Supervisor needs to contact them during the service.) Our Sunday School format follows the Discovering God/Eye on God Curriculum.
Sunday School begins with Music/Art/Games. Children's Formation starts with 20 to 30 minutes of singing and games. A portion of this time will be used to practice music that will be shared as a musical offering on occasion. Around 10:00 am, children will then transition into their respective Sunday School Rooms.
After Music/Art/Games, children will divide into classes based on their ages. This year we will be having two classes: Discovering God for three years through second graders and Eye on God for third graders through sixth graders. Students in seventh grade and above are invited to join in worship with the congregation or to volunteer as classroom aides in our Sunday School classes.
The “soft space” at the front of the sanctuary makes it easier for children in worship to be involved in what is happening by making it easier for them to see and participate. In this space we also provide age-appropriate materials for children to use during worship. We developed this space over the summer and will continue to make it available to our children.
Kids Helping Others
PADS is an organization which set up temporary homeless shelters through Chicagoland. We support this ministry by offering our building as a site on Monday evenings. Our children support this work by decorating bags used to distribute lunches to our guests. Once a month we begin the process of making those lunches by putting chips and cookies into the decorated bags.
