In imitation of our Lord, we value the littlest members of our congregation and consider them no less than adults in God’s kingdom! At Holy Trinity Anglican, we are committed to creating space for your children to meet with God, as well as desire to enthusiastically support and encourage parents as they raise their children to love and honor Christ!

TRINITY KIDS | YOUNG CHILDREN

We offer excellent childcare, Bible lesson and time of worship for Holy Trinity’s youngest at both the 9am and 11am services. We use a combination of staff, volunteers and paid sitters to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our care.

When indoors, all kids’ ministry leaders, including staff, volunteers and babysitters, will follow CDC guidelines regarding mask-wearing. This mask guideline excludes any preschool or nursery-aged children in Holy Trinity’s young children’s wing. However, parents of children entering this wing will be asked to complete a short, health-related intake form. Additionally, children will be given a quick temperature check prior to going into class.

As you enter the church building under the tent and through the courtyard doors, turn left to be welcomed by one of our young children’s greeters. We can’t wait to get to know your family!

TRINITY KIDS | WORSHIP

Trinity Kids, grades K-5th are worshiping under the tent, weather permitting, at both the 9am and 11am services! Children will start their morning in the sanctuary with their families and then are invited, just prior to the sermon, to worship outdoors with a trained and vetted Kids’ Ministry leadership team prepared to open God’s Word and delve into biblical learning designed especially for kids! If a child remains in service, we have a table just for kids located in the lobby that is stocked with Bibles, books and other age- appropriate materials to be used during the service.

When indoors, all kids’ ministry leaders, including staff, volunteers and babysitters, will follow CDC guidelines regarding mask-wearing. Holy Trinity is strongly recommending kids to wear a mask indoors, however, we are not requiring them. This mask guideline excludes any preschool or nursery-aged children in Holy Trinity’s young children’s wing.

TRINITY KIDS | 4|5 KREW

At Holy Trinity we offer something special for kids in either 4th or 5th grades – 4|5 KREW! We recognize these are the in-between years and are intentional about ministering to kids within this age demographic. Additionally, we desire the transition from Kids ministry to Student ministry be as seamless as possible, and we often have our Director of Student Ministries partner with us on 4|5 KREW meet-up days! Your older grade schooler can expect a whole lot of fun, Biblical teaching, games and natural opportunities for connections with peers!

We know your kids won’t want to miss these meet-ups, so make sure to get these fall dates on your calendars and join us for 4|5 KREW!

TRINITY KIDS | SAFETY

We take child safety very seriously at Holy Trinity Anglican. Everyone on our Trinity Kids Team is carefully screened (to include a background and reference check) trained and interviewed before joining the team. Everyone serving in both Kids and Student ministries, as well as Holy Trinity’s staff and Vestry, are required to attend our Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training once every two years. Additionally, Our Young Children’s (nursery and preschool) classrooms are located in a locked wing that is monitored by our trained and vetted team of staff, volunteers, and paid sitters. All our Kids ministry programming, to include activities, are structured to adhere to our Family Ministry safety policies to ensure kids are safe at all times.

TRINITY KIDS | SPECIAL EVENTS

In addition to our Sunday morning programming, Trinity Kids offers many special events throughout the year that give your children, and sometimes their parents, new worship experiences, opportunities to proclaim their faith and just have fun as the body of Christ. Be on the look-out for the following opportunities:

  • Family Lunch – September 12
  • Trunk or Treat – October 30
  • Carols by Glowstick – December 12
  • Christmas Eve Pageant – December 24
  • First Communion Class – During Lent
  • Special Family Services & Events – Throughout the year
  • Trinity Kids on Mission Day Camp – July 25-29, 2022

HOW YOU CAN SERVE

We believe that teaching and walking alongside children is one of the most important jobs in the church. When a child is baptized, we all agree to support the child and their family in their spiritual walk. For some, that means keeping the children within the Church in their prayers, for others it means serving in Kids Ministry in some way. We have an amazing, intergenerational team of godly men and women who invest in the kids they serve on a regular basis. Here are some examples of how you might serve if you feel you are called to join the Trinity Kids Team:

Greeters for God – this extremely important role is one that supports the Young Children’s Wing by helping greet families as they arrive, ensure children are placed in the appropriate classroom, assist parents with the health-screening intake form, take non-contact temperatures of children entering the wing, assist paid sitters with supplies, etc. as needed, monitor the wing to make sure Holy Trinity’s child safety policies and standards are upheld, alerting parents if a child needs to be picked up early for any reason, as well as ensures each child goes home with their parent, or guardian.

This team crosses generations and provides an invaluable layer of safety and relationship-building.

Kids’ Worship Leader – if God has given you a passion for teaching God’s Word, and a love for children, this could be a great fit for you! Most teachers serve once a month, teaching in Children’s Worship (during the sermon & prayers). The curriculum is provided, but teachers have some flexibility and creativity in their choice for activities and discussion questions.

Bible Club Teacher – Bible Club teachers have some of the most fun in the Children’s Ministry! Bible Club is all about playing and competing your way to a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Kids look forward to Bible Club as a time of hanging out with friends, having fun, and trying to see who can win the most tickets!

Preschool Teacher – Preschoolers are already so curious and excited to hear about God and it is so enjoyable to watch them connect with Scripture and God’s Spirit! The Preschool Teachers spend the entire service in the Preschool room, walking the children through a set rhythm with the kids that includes a snack, songs, a Bible story, and an activity that ties in with the story.

Nursery Runner – We want families to feel safe and secure as their little ones get dropped off for Nursery. Our Runners are absolutely indispensable for making sure families are welcomed, and children are gently led or carried  to the correct classroom. Runners generally serve about once a month.

Serving in Trinity Kids

We take the safety of our children very seriously, so the process to join the team is a bit more rigorous than other ministry positions in the church. Here are the steps you’ll need to complete in order to serve:

Step 1: Attend the church for at least 6 months.

Step 2: Email Beth to schedule an in-person interview.

Step 3: Fill out the Trinity Children and Student Application Packet.

Step 4: Complete Holy Trinity Anglican’s training for the prevention of child sexual abuse.

Step 5: Meet with Beth for teacher training.

Please pray about the opportunity to serve in these vital ministries.  We can’t do it without people like you!
