Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Children’s Ministry. We want you and your child to feel welcome from the moment you step through the doors at Trinity Baptist Church.
On Sunday morning, Bible Study (Sunday School) is taught using age-appropriate methods and materials in a safe and nurturing learning environment. All staff, paid and volunteer, have passed an extensive screening process that includes a background check, references, and training. Only those who have completed the process are eligible to work in any area of ministry to children.
Extended Care is available for birth-prekindergarten at the 10:30 am and 6:00 pm Worship Services. (On Sunday morning children stay in their Sunday School class through Extended Care.) This allows for parents to attend worship while their little ones continue to learn and play in a safe supervised environment.

AWANA – (September-May)
AWANA = Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed…
II Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
AWANA meets most Wednesday nights at 6 PM (during the school year) and it’s for boys and girls from 3 years old through 6th grade. The kids start out by playing team games and learning about sportsmanship, fair play, and how to be a team player. This time also helps build their coordination and their confidence as they interact with others. Every kid gets involved and gets a chance to burn as much energy as they wish!
Your child then completes assignments in his/her handbook. Our goal is to help your child memorize helpful Bible verses.
During council time everyone gathers together for singing, award distribution and a practical Bible message. These messages will help your child understand how to love God and begin the habits of an exciting walk with God!
If you’d like to sign your kids up (or get on a waiting list), stop in on Wednesday night (Sept. to May) at 6:00 pm and register with our AWANA Secretary.
AWANA Update: AWANA is Summer Break until September 8, 2017! Traditionally all clubs spaces fill quickly but we welcome new names for the waiting list. Please call the Church Office and let us know which club you are interested in. AWANA Registration is $60. (There is a discount for families with multiple children.)
Kids For Christ – (Wednesdays, June 7-August 30, 2017)
Kids For Christ (KFC) is a summer replacement for AWANA on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm.

Children’s Choir – (September-May)
Through the Children’s Choir Ministry and using a multi-faceted approach to teaching songs, basic music theory, movement, and games children have a great time learning Bible truths as well as music fundamentals.
