Here at Trinity, we have an Education Wing with a Nursery for our Pre-Schoolers, a Play Room for older kids, and a large Craft Room. Our roster of talented teachers includes both retired and “active duty” professional educators, as well as a core group of dedicated volunteers. Kids spend each week doing something different:

The core of our children’s Sunday School Program, is the Deep Blue Curriculum of the United Methodist Church. Along with a craft, we are helping our children learn more about the Bible and how to live our faith.
