Family Ministries

These are activities for the entire Trinity family of faith!  One of the goals of the Children, Youth & Family Committee is to connect youth with adults from their immediate families and their congregational family through opportunities to create and foster relationships. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are a family and we have much to offer each other.  Young & old, single & married, these activities are for ALL.

Family & Intergenerational Events 

These events are designed for the Trinity family of faith (and friends) to come together. All ages are welcome to attend.
