Young People

At Trinity we value our young people, we cherish them, and we nurture them.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures.  So, here are five videos of Trinity’s young people in recent years.

ENJOY

We predict that you’ve never seen anything like this in church!

The young people studied the activities of the Apostles following the Resurrection and in the early days of the church.  Here was the video they produced as part of that study.

Christmas Pageants at Trinity date back to 1942 — the dark days of World War II.  This particular pageant was written, directed, and acted entirely by our young people.

The Congregation of Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford traveled by bus to Trinity Lime Rock for a Sunday.  Here are the processional and recessional from that day — and you’ll see Trinity kids as well as young people from the Cathedral in the procession.

Here was one of the earlier video efforts by our young people, superimposing a “60 Minutes” format on two Bible stories.  Enjoy!!

Summer Sports

We have “one room schoolhouse”-style Sunday School for young people each Sunday morning at 10:30 AM.  One Sunday each month our young people take over running the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist and perform all the roles they’re liturgically permitted.  During the summer months, beginning Memorial Day weekend, the class enjoys summer sports in our courtyard and Trinity Field during class time.  The young people now have been presenting Christmas Pageants ever since 1942, and that’s only the beginning of what they do.

By the way, you should know that we take the safety of our young people very seriously, and closely adhere to the Safe Church policies of the Diocese of Connecticut.  Ask to see a copy when you come by, or you can download a copy from the Diocese of Connecticut website!
