A Whole Church Ministry Disguised as a Children’s Program
Faith Quest Overview and Theme
Holy Trinity’s Sunday school program is “Faith Quest,” where children will be given the opportunity to explore their faith and the Bible in new and exciting ways. We have chosen the color orange as part of our theme to show that our program embraces the love of the family (red) combined with the Light of the Lord (yellow) to make orange. Working closely with Vibrant Faith, we are a welcoming ministry where all children are accepted and encouraged to participate.
Welcoming and Opening
This year, our Sunday School children will come together for a welcome and opening in the Fellowship hall. Our Welcome Celebration will start at 9:30. During the Welcome Celebration we will sing songs, celebrate birthdays, share joys, and pray together. After our Welcome Celebration, classes will be dismissed with their class “Shepherds” at 9:45. Parents and caregivers are able to volunteer in the classroom, or attend the 9:45 service.
Discovery Center (Nursery – ages 0-3)
Our youngest children have their own special classroom where they have the opportunity to explore their world in a nurturing and supportive environment. Children have the opportunity to play, make friends, sing songs, and learn Bible stories. Parents and Caregivers are encouraged to bring their children to the Welcome Celebration and then take them to the Discovery Nursery.
Explorers (Preschool – age 3-5)
Preschool children participate in the morning opening program and then go to their classroom for a special time to learn, sing songs, play games, and create crafts. Classes are lead by “Shepherds” who lead classroom activities every week.
Adventurers (Kindergarten -5th Grade – Rotation Model)
The Adventures program is divided into three classes: 1) Kindergarten – first grade, 2) Second – third grade, and 3) Fourth-fifth grade. (Sixth graders will join the middle school youth program.)
Children will be brought by their Shepherds to the Sanctuary to join worship at the end of Church. During this time, they may sit with their families. Additionally, at the end of the three week rotation, Adventurers will have the opportunity to share what they have learned and created during the 9:45 worship service.
