Family

We believe that most parents and guardians desire an active faith for their child. And we have found that the responsibility of a child’s faith formation may be overwhelming. If this describes you, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! God desires to partner with you. Trinity desires to partner with you. We are created for faith-filled community, so we strive to equip parents and bring them together as much as possible.

Research shows that parents and guardians have the greatest influence on the faith of a child. Therefore one of our main goes at Trinity is to equip parents with education, guidance, instruction and resources for nurturing faith at home for all stages of parenting.

Along those lines, we send out a weekly email with updates on what we are talking about at church and include a home devotional sheet to help guide you in starting some regular caring conversations in the home. We also schedule various parenting sessions during the year so you can get together with other parents for practical advice from various professional child development specialists. We also provide special events to come together as a community of faith. We hope that you and your family will join us to find your place at Trinity!

Trinity Lutheran Church is invested in Faith Formation for all ages. We are excited about these family events and opportunities listed below.
