Introduction to KIDZ Ministry @ Trinity

This is a resource page for parents, teachers, and other disciple-makers of children connected with Trinity Baptist Church.

The posts are designed to help 
parents in their role as the primary disciple-makers of their children,
teachers in their role as helpers of parents and disciple-makers of children,
the Trinity Baptist Church family disciple the children God brings into our lives whether through formal church ministries or relationships we are given. 

More resources will be coming soon.

Kids and Families 
Our desire is for the Children's ministry of Trinity Baptist Church to help kids and their families joyfully pursue the Living God.

This joyful pursuit begins with a right relationship with God through salvation.  Here is a resource that will help you talk to your child about the gift of salvation.

Our desire is the children's ministry of Trinity Baptist Church is planned and purposeful.   
While we use curriculum and other resources, our plan is to teach and live out the truth of the Bible, glorify God and help others do the same. 
Another part of this intentionality is our Child Protection Policy.  We have background checked workers, a check-in/check-out policy, and other procedures to keep kids and families safe. 

Our desire is for the children's ministry of Trinity Baptist Church to help kids and their families grow in godliness.  The Trellis and The Vine says "Disciples are made by the persevering proclamation of the Word of God by the people of God in prayerful dependence on the Spirit of God."  (emphasis mine) Discipleship is about God and encouraging followers of Christ to be holy as God is holy.  We need to teach BIG truths because we serve a BIG God.


Our desire is for the children's ministry of Trinity Baptist Church to be passionate, steady, and energetic.  "Zeal in scripture is fervor and diligence born out of a passion for God and His glory.  It is the result of a heart on fire for the glory of God that is uncontainable and spills out in zealous evangelism, discipleship, service, and good work."  David Michael.  HERE is a link to a free copy of David Michael's book Zealous:  7 Commitments for the Discipleship of the Next Generation.
