Christian Education

We offer a variety of classes, small groups, and worship experiences for all ages that are designed to bring the gospel to you and to bring you to the gospel.

Sunday School Classes for Adults, Youth, and Children

9 am

  • Godly Play | Pre-School through Elementary School Ages | Lower Level
    The Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith through stories from Scripture and our liturgical tradition. The program follows a Montessori based story-wondering-response model, followed by prayers and a feast that connect children to the Episcopal worship tradition.
  • A Trinity Forum | Adults | Dorothy Conroy Parish Hall
    All are invited to join us for “A Trinity Forum” Sundays, 9:00 am, in Dorothy Conroy Hall. Chris Smith & Mark Hunter presents and leads a discussion on current events. For more information on current topics refer to the weekly email newsletter, Talk of Trinity, distributed every Friday.

  • Children’s Chapel | Age 3 through Elementary School Ages | Lower Level
    Children’s Chapel is provided for children three years of age and older. Children’s Chapel, located near the nursery on the lower level of the parish house, includes age-appropriate songs, prayers, and lessons. The children are escorted back to the worship area in time to share Holy Communion with their family and the rest of the adult congregation.

11:30 am (Immediately following the 10 am service)

  • Bible Study | Upper Level Conference Room | 11:30 am | Dr. Richard Gildrie
    Join us as we discuss John’s Gospel, considering the prophetic tradition from the Bible into modern instances.
  • Youth Sunday School | Grades 6 through 12 | Lower Level Youth Group Room | Lunch provided
    6th – 12th graders come together after the 10 am service on Sundays for lunch, fellowship, and fun. Occasionally, the Sunday morning time will morph into field trips and service projects. Spearheaded by our Christian Formation chair, Dr. Virginia Boaz, and co-led by other fantastic adult leaders, Trinity looks forward to a new chapter in youth ministry!

EfM (Education for Ministry)
Tuesday Mornings – 10 am

EfM is a four-year theological education program offered “at a distance” by the School of Theology at the University of the South at Sewanee.
