Ministries

 

Trinity offers many ministries within the church and community.

 

Sunday School - Sunday school is offered for children ages nursery - 6th grade beginning at 10:30 until 11:30 AM. Children's Choir practice is held at the beginning of the Sunday school class. It's not too late to register. Children are welcome to join at any time during the year. Please contact the church office for more information.

 

Catechetical (Confirmation) Class - Confirmation is a two year program for 7th and 8th graders. Students will study passages from scripture and learn how they apply to daily living. The class will participate in service activities such as the Crop Walk, Potato Project and Feed the Need. The highlight is an end of the year weekend retreat to Bluff Island, N.Y. Students will partake in team building and spiritual leadership activities. A favorite is the "Leap of Faith", a 17 foot jump into the fridgid waters of the St. Lawrence River.

 

Social Ministry meets on a regular basis (meeting dates to be announced). Together, they co-ordinate and plan many of the church activites of Trinity.
