Trinity United Methodist Church – working alongside parents – wishes to provide a welcoming and safe environment for the Trinity Kids to learn about God and the love that he has for them. Recognizing that we all learn in different ways, your child will be exposed to music, art, lessons, games, and worship. Each program in the Trinity Children’s program takes a different approach to learning. Through these programs, we hope to provide a strong spiritual foundation that they may build upon as they grow.
The mission of the Children’s Ministries of Trinity is to seek, share and be like God.
