Sunday School typically runs from September through June. Check the calendar for more details.
Sunday School is dedicated to teaching children from 3 years old to grade 6 about the love of Jesus. This is accomplished through teaching Bible stories, singing songs, playing games, and other activities. There are opportunities for worshiping together as a whole group, as well as splitting into age groups for more in-depth Bible study. The goal is to foster each child’s relationship with Jesus Christ in a meaningful way during their formative years. Join them on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in the school gym during the school year!
Our Children’s Church program is offered during the Sunday morning 10:30 AM service (9:30 AM during the summer worship schedule). This program is an adjunct to other service opportunities for our children at Trinity, beginning at age 4. It is distinct in its emphasis by providing teachings during the sermon which are Scripture based and specifically related to church on an age appropriate level. Children will learn how and why we worship in particular ways as they follow each Sunday’s service in the bulletin. The day’s lesson is then connected to what we as a church hope to do for each other as a body and beacon of Christ.
Each week children are given assignments to familiarize them with the church, the bulletin, the building, the congregation and those who serve us during the services such as musicians and ushers. During craft time the children often have a lesson from God’s Word or have a chance to express something related to the lesson given in Children’s Church in art form.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
The VBS summer vacation program is for children Pre-K through 6th grade. It is a FREE week long program that runs from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and is all about sharing the love of Jesus with children. Bible lessons & related crafts are completed with the children in an age appropriate manner along with snack time and physical activity sessions.

Confirmation begins with a short course (a couple of weeks) in Holy Communion, beginning in 6th grade. From there, with a combined class, 7th and 8th graders work through the school year studying Luther’s Small Catechism and Lutheran doctrine. Students are then confirmed following completion of the 2nd year. Classes currently meet from 9:15-10:15 AM on Sunday mornings in the school, typically during the school year from September through May.
The youth ministry helps bring Jesus onto a personal level with youth and teens. Our high school group gathers every Sunday morning 9:15 AM -10:15 AM in the church basement youth room, typically meeting during the school year from September through June. In addition to bible studies, they do a variety of recreational, mission and service based projects throughout the year. Even if you are not a teen, you can be involved by leading a study or planning an event.
