Opportunities for children at Trinity encompass a wide variety of offerings, for all age groups. In addition, you’ll find several of our young people serving as acolytes, readers, and ushers during the 10:30 service. You can find a calendar of Sunday school and other children’s offerings at the bottom of this page. Here are some brief descriptions of what we have to offer.
Nursery (Ages: Birth through Age Five)
Our caring staff and volunteers supervise babies and toddlers in an inviting and large room. The nursery is available for parents and young children to use on Sunday mornings, for play, fellowship, or just to take a break, beginning at 9:15 am.
Open from 9am until the end of the 10:30am service and for special events.
Godly Play (Ages: Preschool through Grade 4)
Godly Play is a Montessori-based experience. It uses a storytelling approach to scripture and liturgy with classrooms which emphasize a joy of lifelong learning in an environment that “respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God.” Our leaders, or “storytellers,” are trained and certified Godly Play teachers who bring their experience to our wonderful classrooms.
Juniors (Grades 5-7)
This class uses offerings from the Workshop Rotation curriculum, which includes a number of hands-on activities for students to explore the theme of the day. This year, the group will be studying various themes in the Bible, ranging from God’s covenant with Abraham to the teachings of Jesus.
CAYA: Come As You Are (grades 8-12)
Sometimes quirky, though never dull, this class is designed to help teens discover how faith meets real life. Using a variety of resources, this class will help youth explore God’s place in their lives through discussions, art, prayer, music, videos, and many other activities. Several of our young people also actively participate in Diocesan Youth Council, which meets several times a year to plan events for middle and high school students throughout the Diocese of Bethlehem.
