Having a Baby?

We are excited about welcoming your new little one into the Trinity family!  We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with your family as you build a closer relationship to Christ.  This section of our website is designed to give you information you may need as we welcome the newest member of your family.  Our goal at Trinity is to provide a clean, caring environment for babies and children to enjoy beginning learning about God which will foster a love of learning about our beliefs throughout their lives.  Here are a few frequently asked questions for new parents at Trinity…

Q: How do I let the church know about my new baby?
A: The first thing to do is to call us and share the good news of the birth of your baby!  (879-1737).  The receptionist will arrange an announcement in Tidings and a flower to be put in the sanctuary announcing the birth.

Q: What should I do with my baby on Sunday mornings?
A: You are welcome to bring your baby with you to worship or Sunday school.  However, we have an excellent nursery program, and we encourage you to take advantage of our professional and caring nursery environment.  The nursery suite is located on the ground level, in the middle of the long hallway.

Q: Who will take care of my child while he or she is in the nursery?
A: We take great pride in the quality of both our nursery staff and facilities, because we understand that providing a safe, pleasant and clean environment is an all-important step in the spiritual development of children. Our nursery rooms are staffed with trained professionals as well as caring volunteers. Our nursery workers are CPR certified, undergo background checks, and are approved by our Child Protection Policy. Our volunteers are church members and parents who have a heart for children.

Q: What do I do with my baby when I arrive in the nursery?
A: When you enter the nursery suite, please sign your child in on the forms provided. Someone will be there to welcome your child into his or her appropriate room. Pagers are available for parents should a child become sick or cannot be comforted after 15 minutes. Identifying numbers are assigned to each child, the diaper bag and the parents. Parents must present this identification when picking up their child(ren).

Q: When is the nursery available?
A: The nursery is open on Sunday mornings from 8:30am-12:15pm and for other church wide events.

Q: Should I volunteer to help?
A: We ask that parents of regularly attending nursery children volunteer once every 6 weeks.

Q: When does my baby go to Sunday school? 
A.  Sunday school begins with children who turn two by September 1.  Classes are formed in September for the year.  Classes meet from 9:45-10:30.
