Trinity Welcomes our new Nursery Supervisor:
We are delighted to introduce Trinity’s new Sunday morning nursery care-giver – Ms. Teresa Lonas. Teresa currently cares for nursery and Pre-K children during the week at the Athletic Club of Columbus, our near Broad Street neighbors, and our Rector has known her for more than seven years. She is a delightful, warm person who shows great attention and gentle care for the children in her charge. She will be a wonderful addition to our Sunday morning life at Trinity.
Happily, Teresa’s hours each Sunday will be 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., designed to encourage families with children to participate in adult formation as well as worship.
We hope you will plan to visit the nursery in these weeks leading up to and following Easter so that you can greet Teresa warmly and say hi to our wonderful Trinity children.
Christian Education at Trinity Church
Adult Formation: Gathering Sundays at 9:15 a.m. See the weekly e-Chimes for announcements of upcoming formation events.
Church School: During the academic year, classes are held for all ages of children during the 10:30 a.m. liturgy on Sundays. New students are always welcome to attend.
Trinity offers Sunday School for elementary school children and Nursery Care on a year round basis. While attendance varies, typically 6 -7 children attend each week in the elementary class. The nursery has several babies, toddlers and preschoolers each week. We have welcomed several new families this year. Move-up from the nursery to elementary class occurs throughout the year when the child shows a readiness for the class. We welcome visitors, of any age, at any time. We continue to use the curriculum posted on the Episcopal Church website with the elementary aged children:

We decorate the table with the liturgical color of the season and the children's creative arts. During the summer and early Fall we helped with the collection of items to fill baskets for families who received help from the Community Refugee and Immigration Service. The ‘no rehearsal, no stress’ presentation of the Nativity at the Family Service on Christmas Eve was fun with participants of all ages.
Summer activities are also planned during the combined summer liturgy time.
