Children and Family Ministry
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have decided that it is best to close the nursery.
Children’s Worship has resumed. Families, your safety continues to be our top priority. In order to continue to keep everyone safe, children’s worship will only be available by advanced sign-up. All volunteers will be required to wear masks the entire time. Children are encouraged to wear a mask, but social distancing measures will be in place (because kids are kids)! Children’s worship throughout August went very well, and I feel confident that we can continue to have fun while learning about God and how to love God and others by continuing these safety practices.
Children will begin service in the sanctuary with their families. Miss Melissa will dismiss the kids for children’s worship shortly after the start of worship. Children’s worship takes place in the basement Fellowship Hall. During children’s worship, kids play games, learn a Bible story, and complete other crafts and activities to reinforce our lesson. All families have their own bin of craft supplies that only their children use.
Please sign-up your family to participate in children's worship:
This sign-up will be available for the rest of the year, so you can make changes to your schedule as needed. Melissa will send out regular updates letting you know about additional availability on Sunday mornings. Contact Melissa directly for questions, email@example.com or call/text 248-346-3095.
Children’s Activity Bags During Worship
Trinity has prepared activity bags for children (toddlers-5th grade). If you attend Trinity regularly, your child will have a personalized activity bag with their name (first name only) written on it! This bag will stay at the church during the week. When your family arrives for worship, please pick up the activity bag from the designated table. Your child can enjoy the coloring pages and quiet toys during the service. At the end of worship, you are welcome to take home the coloring pages but please collect all other items and return them to the bag. Seal the bag shut and drop it off at the activity bag table before you leave.
Are you a first-time visitor? We have activity bags (not previously used) ready for your child's name to be added to it! By making individual activity bags available for our children, we hope to keep all of our families safe and healthy while worshiping together.
Children’s Sunday School - currently unavailable
Children are invited to join us every Sunday morning for Sunday school (nursery care is always available during the Sunday school hour and worship service). At the beginning of 2020, we started a series on the fruit of the Spirit. During Sunday school, children have the opportunity to learn about God, prayer, reading the Bible, and they are encouraged to ask tough questions! Sunday school begins at 9:15 am and meets in the Fellowship Hall.
While the church is closed, check out the weekly activities posted in the Trinity Families Facebook group as well as other online offerings posted on Facebook and the home page.
Families at Play
This month’s family fun activity will be held on Sunday, September 27 from 3-5 pm. Join us in the Great Room for a movie! Families, please bring a
blanket or sleeping bag or something soft and comfy to sit on. Families will be spaced out in the Great Room so that groups are at least 6 ft apart. Water bottles and mini popcorn bags will be available. You are welcome to bring your own snacks for your family. However, food sharing between families will not be allowed. Please wear a mask when you are not eating or drinking.
While we cannot publicly advertise the movie title, movie details will be shared with families. Since we do have limited space in the Great Room, RSVP to Melissa to guarantee a spot for your family, (765) 742-1288, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Save the date for our next Families At Play event on Sunday, October 25. This event will likely include pumpkin painting!
Trinity offers a multitude of programs for our youngest members and their friends. We strive to enable the children to learn at their own pace while they participate in a variety of activities while growing in Christ’s name.
Sunday Morning Safety
Trinity’s Children’s Ministry team is always working to ensure a clean and safe environment for all our families. For this reason, we ask that all families who use our nursery and participate in children’s ministry complete an activity release form. This provides our staff with parent/emergency contact information so that we can quickly reach parents in the case of an emergency. If there is ever a change in contact information, please alert Melissa or one of our nursery staff members right away.
Contact Melisssa Kramer, Director of Congregational Ministries at email@example.com for more information and to become involved in this ministry!
