Children are a great blessing from God. With these great blessings come greater responsibilities. We believe that we are stewards of the Lord’s children, as parents we are responsible helping our offspring to grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church believes that we have a responsibility towards the children as well. We provide an atmosphere in which the children feel safe and are taught age-appropriate Bible lessons. We encourage our young charges to develop a relationship with Christ Jesus.


The Children’s Ministry of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran exists to glorify the Lord through joyful children, supporting parents and edifying teachers so the Gospel of Jesus Christ may be spread among our community and the church at large may be strengthened.

"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:14-15

Come to Trinity Evangelical Lutheran and discover the wide array of ministries for the children, from infants through 8th grade.

The classes are divided as:

  • 3 and 4 year-olds
