Young Children and Worship

We provide a fully-staffed nursery near the Sanctuary for infants and toddlers through 2 years old during both worship hours.  Children ages 3 to 5 are invited during both worship hours to join us downstairs in the Sonshine Wing to experience a Bible story, playtime, snack and often a craft.

All of our childcare ministers are carefully screened, qualified and supervised to provide safe care for your children.  Learn more about our Children's Ministry.

Worship Schedule

There are two identical worship services on Sunday mornings from 8:30-9:30am and 10:00-11:00am.  See description under "What to Expect."

Because we believe families that worship together grow together, we strongly encourage you to bring your family into worship.  There are also well-staffed nurseries for younger children throughout the morning.

Sunday School classes for kids pre-k to grade 6 are from 8:30-9:30am.  In addition, there is a Discipleship/Confirmation class for teens in Junior High and another class for those in High School.

During the 10:00am worship we provide Children's Church for children from k through 4th grade.  This fun, lively class is designed to creatively and lovingly teach the message of the Bible. 

There are a number of adult classes to choose from during the school year that are offered at both 8:30 and 10:00am. 

 

 

What to Expect on a Sunday Morning

If you show up at one of our two Sunday worship services you can expect:
  • Services at 8:30 and 10:00am are pretty much identical. 
  • High-quality, high-energy praise and worship; music is mostly on the contemporary side, but we like hymns too!
  • A biblical message from one of Trinity's staff (with occasional guest speakers).
  • Sunday School classes for kids pre-k to grade 6 are held from 8:30-9:45am.  In addition, there is a Discipleship/Confirmation class for teens in Junior High and another class for those in High School.  During the 10:00am worship we provide Children's Church for children from k through 4th grade.  This fun, lively class is designed to creatively and lovingly teach the message of the Bible.  There are a variety of Adult G.R.O.W. Classes to choose from during the school year that are offered at both 8:30 and 10:00.
  • Frequent updates and testimonies concerning what’s going on in the lives of our people, and in our local and worldwide missions.
  • Communion on the first Sunday of every month.  The elements are placed on a table in front of the church and everyone is invited to come forward to partake in the elements.  All believers in Jesus are welcome at communion, (not just Trinity members)!
  • People dressed in everything from traditional go-to-church clothing (shirts, ties, dresses, heels) to jeans and sandals.  Like many congregations, the trend is to the informal.
  • Quality child care for your kids provided by carefully screened caregivers.
  • The service to be between an hour and an hour and fifteen minutes long.
