Children and Youth
Guided by skillful and loving teachers, children grow in faith hearing the stories of the Bible as presented through lessons prepared by the Episcopal Church. The curriculum is lectionary-based, meaning that children hear the lesson or lessons that are read in worship that Sunday.
Young persons preparing for Confirmation receive instruction around ninth grade. This time of learning focuses on what it means to be a Christian in the Episcopal tradition. We review the Bible, the creeds, and the history of our denomination, and talk about what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. Only a Bishop can confirm, so Confirmation Instruction is scheduled to coincide with a Bishop’s visit to Trinity.
Vacation Bible School
In an intergenerational Trinity treat which occurs every summer, children of the parish join many of our youth and adults for a week of fun and learning. Whatever the theme, whatever the format, VBS is always a joyful endeavor.
