The Children/Youth Education Mission of Trinity is to guide Trinity’s children and youth through a reflective and active faith formation experience that provides a solid Christian foundation in the Episcopal tradition and fosters a spiritual reserve that supports them in making informed moral decisions throughout their lives. We do this by developing curriculum that promote our values of theology, Biblical study, spiritual practice, community, and service.

Our Sunday School program is staffed by dedicated, experienced volunteers and provides a progressive curriculum of religious education, designed to encourage children’s active participation in story, ritual and liturgy.
Children can begin the program at age 3, and continue until they are ready for Youth group.
Pre-school and kindergarten children begin their church school experience in “Godly Play” and advance in the curriculum through grade 4.
Children in first through sixth grade, in the Quest program, explore ethics, spirituality, social responsibility and Christian tradition through a Lectionary-based, multi-sensory program called Seasons of the Spirit.
Children in fourth through sixth grade alongside following the lectionary based Seasons of the Spirit, are introduced to topics for three to four weeks at a time through the curriculum, God Talks! from Leader Resources. This multimedia activity compares clips from recent movies and music albums with Bible stories in order to find where God is at work in the world.
