“He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.'” Matthew 18:2-5

 

Children are loved and welcomed at Trinity Baptist Church!

We seek to provide and minister to children through education, worship, activities, and fellowship. Trinity Baptist Church offers preschoolers and children a loving environment from which to grow in their knowledge of God. We provide opportunities for children to build relationships, learn from the Bible, be creative and play with friends. Our prayer is that each child will grow and respond to a personal relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ when led by the Holy Spirit.
