THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY


CHILDREN AND YOUTH EDUCATION FORMATION

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF LEARNING

Empathy for others is born from knowledge and understanding. The more we know and can teach, the better we can serve our community. We challenge ourselves and each other to find new ways to learn, adapt, and share what we know. We integrate children and youth from our congregation to lead and assist in our worship services. Empowering the younger generation to feel heard and to lead instills confidence and pride. They are not just future leaders, but they are the leaders of today. Our teens and youth are encouraged to integrate their faith and their lives as they have opportunities to talk openly about their experiences and how their faith can support them. Learning continues beyond childhood at The Church of the Holy Trinity. Our adult gatherings provide an open and welcoming venue for discussing faith-related topics and questions among like-minded congregants..

CHILDREN, YOUTH AND FAMILIES

At The Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square, we fully embrace children and youth, ages 0 - 18. We believe they are leaders of today and tomorrow. Their voices and contributions are important and critical in the life of our church. We genuinely embrace this and live this out in all of our ministries.

Those who lead and teach our children and youth are equally important at our church. We find just the right leaders to be with our young people and babies, and we invest in their leadership. Following the Safeguarding Our Children standards and protocol is merely the minimum. We go above and beyond to equip our leaders to be role models for our children and youth. They are trained and vetted to be a part of the energetic team.

We are grounded in the desire to care for each other and God’s on-going Creation. During times when there is confusion in the world as we face many unknown


factors, we remain faithful and confident in our ability to follow God’s call. We seek connection with one another and welcome you to our ministries and programs with families. We invite you to discover the opportunities to find spiritual growth and faith formation at our church and participate as you are able and desire.

Our Summer Programming is mid-June through September. Our Program Year is October to mid-June. You will find something for all ages and phases year-round. We carefully consider developmental stages and make the most of synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities, especially during the COVID-19 landscape. Currently, we meet in password protected Zoom Room opportunities to be church together apart. While we have created different groups for different ages, we are also fluid and we understand tweens may be more comfortable in the younger group or the older group. We invite you to contact our leadership team for more details. Please contact Ms. Soozung Sa Rankin at srankin@htrit.org with questions or to get on the family listserve.
