We are excited to reopen our Sunday morning children’s programming at all services September 6.  The reopening of Sonlight Children’s Ministry at Trinity Evangelical has required much thought, research, and prayer. The safety of our children is of the utmost importance and we want to treat reopening as such. 

Our Ministry’s goal is to help people (no matter how small) follow Jesus and we want to take steps for safety and health. We are honored that you have trusted us with your children, and we want that trust to continue. We want to make children's and families' experience back at church as comfortable and familiar as possible while also keeping everyone safe and healthy.  

We understand there are many different levels of concern, so we encourage everyone to practice consideration and grace.

At this time, we require all families to let us know they are attending by completing sign up HERE so we can set up accordingly and have up to date contact information.
