INFANTS AND TODDLERS

Holy Trinity offers a nursery on Sunday mornings beginning at 9 a.m. for parents wishing to attend Adult Formation and the 10:30 a.m. service.  The nursery provides care for children up to age 6, although parents are welcome to bring their babies or children to the service, if they prefer.  The nursery provides pagers to communicate with parents.

Children’s Ministry

We have a vibrant and growing community of children at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church with a variety of ways for you and your children to connect to God and one another.

Sunday School: 2016 was our first year implementing Godly Play as our foundational Children’s Ministry for children ages 4 years through 5th grade. Godly Play is a Montessori based Christian Education curriculum and is designed to build upon a child’s innate sense of the Holy. The Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith through story, gives them a foundation for religious language and ‘enhances their spiritual experience through wonder and play.’ One of the beautiful components to this program is that it meets the children where they are and engages them on different and deeper levels as they grow through early, middle, and late childhood. We are so excited to see it continue to blossom in our community!

Children’s Church: Most Sunday mornings, we invite all children ages 4 years through 5th grade to process out of the Sanctuary during the ‘Gloria’ to have their own worship experience. Once we are gathered in our worship space, we start in prayer, sing a song of praise and tell a sacred story. We also incorporate prayers of the people and wrap up our time together by passing the peace. We find that giving the children their own opportunity to worship together makes it possible for them to make the sacred narrative their own and create community among other children in the parish.

Children’s Choir: Children’s Choir meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month and is led by our Music Minister Beth Jordan. The ‘Cherub Choir’ or children aged 4 years old through Kindergarten will rehearse from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.. The ‘Children’s Choir’ or children grades 1 through 6 will rehearse from 4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.. All are welcome any time throughout the year! Please contact Beth Jordan @ musicminister@holytrinityfay.org for more information.

Seasonal Events: We offer a variety of special events throughout the year. Some of those include the All Saints Parade, a St. Nicholas Party, the Christmas Pageant, a Shrove Tuesday Pancake event and Vacation Bible School.

We sincerely hope you join us on this journey!
