Beginning February 2018, Youth Group will meet every second and fourth Sunday from 5:00pm to 6:30pm. Our group is engaging and Christ-centered, focused on imparting the love and knowledge of God.
We use games and discussion-based teaching to serve our students. Our prayerful desire is for our students to then take the Good News of the Gospel and introduce it to their communities.
We welcome all middle and high school youth, from those who are merely curious about God to those who have a full-fledged desire to follow Him.
If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Josh Gritter in the parish office at 772-567-1146 or via email at email@example.com.
Where children of all ages are welcome!
Our programs offer many options for kids. If you have any questions regarding any of our programs or events, please contact
Kathy Rodriguez, Parish Life Director.
For the little ones, Trinity has a
nursery for children up to age 5. Located in the Youth Building, it is staffed with
loving, nurturing, and highly qualified caregivers. Caregivers are available
beginning at 9:00 a.m. (for parents who want to attend Adult Forum) through
12:00 p.m. (so parents can attend Coffee Hour). The Nursery is optional,
as children are always welcome in the sanctuary.
Trinity Church also has a “Quiet Room”
located in the back of the sanctuary that welcomes parents with small children.
The room is soundproof and equipped with a bathroom, changing table and comfortable
chairs. A large glass window allows parents to view the altar and participate
in the service while caring for their young children.

Our Sunday School
program is designed for kids ages Pre-school through 5th grade. From 9:45 a.m. to
10:45 a.m. children meet in the Youth Building for the Sunday School lesson.
Afterwards, they are brought to the church by the teachers to meet up
with their parents, usually around the time of the “Announcements.”
Sunday School is taught year-round. Children are welcome to join at
Trinity offers events
for kids throughout the year. Vacation Bible School (VBS) for kids ages 3 to 10
each summer, a summertime Mission Trip for the Youth Group, a St. Nicholas
Party and Advent Pageant in December, and an Easter Egg Hunt in spring are just
a few examples of our fun, annual events. Check our calendar for more details.
When kids are able to
carry the crucifix and candles, process through the church to the altar, and
sit through the service, they are able to become acolytes. An acolyte assists
the priest and deacon in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting
candles, holding the Gospel book, carrying candles or "torches,"
assisting the deacon or priest with altar preparations, carrying the incense
boat and many other tasks as deemed appropriate by the priest. Being an acolyte
is a ministry that we and our youth take very seriously at Trinity.
Trinity’s Junior Choir (Grades K-3) is taught by Mrs. Darlene Rodgers and not only teaches children about singing, but also gives them instruction in key musical skills. The Junior choir relies on using Christian hymns and prayers to teach children how music can be an offering to God in our liturgy. The Junior Choir will begin to rehearse at Trinity on Sunday mornings after the 10:00 a.m. service. Parents and children should meet in the Parish Hall after the service and the children will be brought back to the Sunday School room for rehearsal. Parents can enjoy a cup of coffee and fellowship at Coffee Hour while their children attend rehearsal. The children will be returned to their parents in the Parish Hall around 12:00 noon. To learn more about the Junior Choir please contact Mrs. Darlene Rodgers at 941-539-8468.
Boys and Girls Choir
Trinity’s Boys and Girls Choir (Grades 4-8) is directed by Mr. Anthony Baron, Trinity’s Associate Director of Music and Choirmaster. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings at Trinity from 6:15 to 7:00 p.m. Beyond singing, this group teaches the children what it means to be a chorister in the Anglican tradition. They rely on using Christian hymns and prayers to teach children how music can be an offering to God in our liturgy. To learn more about the Boys and Girls Choir please contact Anthony Baron at 772-567-1146 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
