Children are welcome in our worship services. Parents wishing to remove a child from worship for whatever reason will find a space with a rocking chair and some toys and books in the fellowship hall for this purpose. We leave the speakers on in the fellowship hall so you might still hear the service.
Sunday school begins at approximately 9:15 am following the first worship service. There are two classes: Age 3 – Grade 2 and Grade 2 and Up.
Each week, students in both classes explore the same Bible story. Student leaflets are used in teaching and as a take-home piece. These are called Explore More Cards and were created to take the Bible story home. The cards have a picture of the Bible story on one side and a few questions for discussion on the reverse side. This gives parents, guardians and others the opportunity to keep the Bible lesson going throughout the week.
Crafts, music, drama and games are used to help get to the heart of the lesson and to make the experience for the children fun and memorable.
Parents, guardians and other adults are welcome to attend and to learn about the weekly lesson in a separate class for adults.

The Outreach Christian Arts Ministry at Holy Trinity offers children in grades K through 5 the opportunity to participate in our classes and choirs, each offering age-appropriate music and singing curriculum, arts and crafts, Bible lessons, outdoor group activity and performance opportunities. Children’s choirs are K- grade 2 and grades 3 – 5.
Classes are held on Wednesdays from 4:00 pm – 6:45 pm during the school year. Various opportunities to lead worship through song are provided throughout the year, such as on Reformation Sunday and at a special Christmas program.
Children are invited to participate. Transportation may be available for those in need. Snacks and a light supper are provided. Parents and caregivers are invited to share in the meal. No audition or previous experience is required and the program is free of charge.
