CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL – GODLY PLAY

Children’s Sunday School is held during the Sunday 10:30am service each week. The class welcomes children, age 4 through 5th grade, and begins at 10:15 each Sunday. It is alway staffed by 2 SafeGuard trained adults. The children are returned to their family in the Service, at the Peace, in time for Holy Communion. The class is taught using Godly Play ~ a Montessori based approach to teaching the stories of the Bible. The class includes a Lesson, Snack & Craft or Activity. During the Summer we have “Summer Fun Sunday School,” with Bible Stories, singing, and crafts. We offer Vacation Bible School each summer, for a week long fun and fellowship event. It is 9:00am-12:00 Monday through Friday, usually in June. Weekly emails are sent to all families for Children’s Ministries. If you would like to be included, please send a request to Danielle Alvarado, Director of Children’s Ministries.

NURSERY

Our Nursery is staffed each Sunday by 2 SafeGuard trained adults, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We welcome all children for the 8:00 a.m. service in the Nursery. For the 10:30 a.m. Service, we welcome our littlest angels, up to 3 years old. Four and older attend Godly Play. Feel free to use the nursery for changing, feeding, or if you need a quiet space, even if you chose to not have your child in Nursery during the whole Service. When you do bring your children  you also have the option for the staff to bring your child to the Service in time for the Holy Communion, or have your child enjoy the Nursery for the whole Service. At all times, we welcome any child in the Services!

Adult Formation


Saint John the Gospel writer says, “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.” He also says, “But there are also many other things that Jesus did; if every one of them were written down, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.” – John 20:30; 21:22

As Anglicans or Episcopalians, we believe that the revelation of the Living God to humanity did not stop with the written Word, the Bible, so we never stop learning. At Trinity Church we realize this; hence, we continue to listen to God’s Holy Spirit in community, i.e. at play, over meals, in group meetings, and in group studies. We devote considerable attention and resources to educating and forming all generations and age groups. For our adult members, we offer Monday evening Women’s Bible Study, mid-week Adult Bible Study, or Sunday morning Adult Topical/Bible Study.

SUNDAY MORNING – ADULT FORMATION / BIBLE STUDY

Join us each Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. in Eaton Hall (downstairs) for topical discussions (and coffee and doughnuts!).

Join us for a 10-week study beginning September 8th as we study Handel’s Messiah and the biblical passages that form this great work of George Frideric Handel. (1685-1759) The passages were compiled by Handel’s contemporary, Charles Jennens.  Each week we will study the background and context of the scripture, and watch that portion of The Messiah as it was performed and recorded by Collegium 1704 (Conductor Vaclav Lucs) in Prague in 2011.
SAVE THE DATE: On Thursday, December 12, we will ride into Houston together for a live performance of Handel’s Messiah at 8:00 p.m. at the Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church!

MID-WEEK ADULT BIBLE STUDY FOR FALL – A BOLD FAITH

Beginning on Thursday, September 12th in Upstairs Eaton Hall (elevator available), all are welcome as we explore the examples of our ancestors in the Faith who were particularly bold—and lived in particularly challenging times!  Noah and his sons, Moses, Esther, Jeremiah, St. Luke, Mary and Martha, and St. Paul will have a word for us about being bold in our time!  No homework required, and our teaching will be loosely based on “Great Characters of the Bible,” by Dr. Alan B. Stringfellow.
