Say Yes to TGC kids:
babies team

TGC Kids guides children in their relationship with Christ by providing a loving atmosphere where they can be fully accepted as children created in the image of God. We support parents as primary disciple makers and invite each family at Trinity Grace into the wonder of God's story. Our Babies Team provide comfort and play opportunities to the youngest members of our church family, and invite nursing mothers into a peaceful environment to connect with their infant or toddler.

our team goals

The spiritual, physical and emotional health of our families is our priority. We see each child as an individual that is made in the image of God, with spiritual gifts to be encouraged.

Each Sunday at Trinity Grace, we provide an safe and engaging environment of loving consistency so that children can build community with their peers and grow in their relationship with God.
