Adult Ministry

Trinity members and guests enjoy several opportunities for study, spiritual growth and fellowship. We offer Sunday School classes September through May, discussion groups, social outings, retreats and other events throughout the year.

Our adult Sunday School classes include:

The Well (Heritage Room) – This class begins with fellowship and then discusses scripture relating to that day’s sermon.

ChildREN

Sunday School meets at 9:45 a.m. in the Carson Fellowship Hall.

TK – 5th grade:
Trinity has begun a new Sunday School curriculum designed for COVID safety. The curriculum is organized in biblically themed units. Each unit includes a variety of “stations”. The stations include music, drama, cooking, crafts, and games. Many of our activities will be held outside on our beautiful campus (weather permitting). We will also utilize the Fellowship Hall and Youth Center. The children will be organized by age groups. Each group will attend a different station each week.

Our middle school and high school members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of ways. Photographers, Videographers, Assistant Teachers, and Group Shepherds. They are an integral part of making the bible stories and lessons come alive for our younger children!

We can’t wait to see you! For more information email Jodi Martin at jmartin@trinitypreschurch.org.

Children ages five & up attend Worship. Younger children are always welcome in worship! Childcare for children two-four years is available during Sunday School and Worship.

*All teachers are Covid vaccinated. Teachers and children will wear masks unless outdoors and socially distanced.*

Youth

At Trinity, we help our youth build stronger relationships with God, our church family, and our community. We believe in growing together, welcoming all.

  • Sunday School (Grades 6-12, Youth Center/Fellowship Hall) – This class meets with the children. Youth are invited to be youth leaders who assist the teachers with the stations.
  • Sunday Night Youth Fellowship: During the school year, our 6th-12th graders eat dinner and meet in the Youth Center from 6–7 p.m.

  • We encourage our youth to grow as leaders in Worship. They read scripture on Sunday mornings, participate as acolytes, ushers, and crucifers. Other growth and leadership opportunities include Youth Sunday and serving as elders on our Session. We encourage our youth to attend the summer Montreat and Massanetta Youth Conferences.

  • Trinity’s Youth serve and learn through our partnership with Roof Above, Mission Trips, and Souper Bowl of Caring. Our annual Silent Auction and BBQ help fund our mission travels.

For more information on programs for children and youth, contact Rev. Jodi Martin, Director of Christian Formation and Youth.

CARING FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

There is no shame in needing to strengthen your mental health. Trinity is committed to de-stigmatizing mental health and acknowledging how it affects our day-to-day life. If you are in need of assistance, check out these resources or reach out to a pastor to talk more about what you need.

Montreat Retreat

For more than 40 years, Trinity members and guests have claimed the third weekend in October at Montreat’s Assembly Inn.  Whether it’s climbing to the top of Lookout Mountain, shopping, visiting a microbrewery, singing by the fire, taking a stroll around Lake Susan, watching football together, or napping on Saturday afternoon, there is something for all ages.
