Sunday School

Trinity offers Sunday School for preschoolers through adults on Sunday mornings, between the worship services.   Classes are divided into preschoolers, elementary, confirmation class, high school youth, and adults.  Preschoolers and elementary students learn about the basics of the Bible and the Lutheran faith.  Confirmation class prepares middle-schoolers to publicly declare their intention to embrace the Lutheran faith through the rite of confirmation.  High school and adult classes vary in the topics they cover, depending upon the interests of the participants, but all are grounded in scripture and how faith relates to our daily lives.  See the church calendar for class times.


Confirmation Class

Confirmation class prepares middle-schoolers to publicly declare their intention to embrace the Lutheran faith through the rite of confirmation.  Confirmation preparation requires a thorough grounding in knowledge of the Bible and the beliefs and practices of the Lutheran church as practiced in the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).  In the rite of Confirmation, the young person, who has completed these studies (usually over a period of 2-3 school years) and been approved by the pastor and church council, publicly affirms before the congregation that she/he has studied the tenets of the faith and wishes to remain committed to practicing the faith.  This is a required step for membership in the congregation.  Confirmation class is taught on Sunday mornings during the Sunday school time. 


High School Sunday School

High school Sunday school is available for young adults in 9th grade and older.   Classes vary in the topics they cover, depending upon the interests of the participants, but all are grounded in scripture and how faith relates to our daily lives.  In addition, young adults are encouraged to participate in the life of the congregation with leadership roles in worship and other congregational events and ministries.  Classes meet during the Sunday school time between the worship services.
