Trinity’s Children & Family Ministry Program

Trinity Lutheran Church places a high value on providing resources to build, support and strengthen the lives of families and children. Trinity provides a number of resources, activities and groups to encourage parents as they strive to raise their children in the Christian faith.

Trinity Lutheran School

Since 1860, Trinity Lutheran Church has supported and maintained a Christian day school, with the purpose of providing a Christ-centered education for the Springfield community. provides a safe, healthy and nurturing environment in a Christ-centered atmosphere for children 2 years old through 8th grade. Trinity Lutheran School caring teachers are committed to teaching the skills each child needs to reach their potential in all areas of their development. Trinity Lutheran School has four core values:

  • Sharing Christ’s love with our students and their families.
  • Preparing our students to be successful in their future education and vocation.
  • Supporting the families of our students as they face the challenges of life.
  • Encouraging our students to grow into active and compassionate citizens.

 Sunday School

Trinity Lutheran Church offers Sunday School classes for children 3 years old through high school.

Sunday School takes place at our school campus from 9:35 – 10:15 am each Sunday. Parents are encouraged to attend the Adult Bible Class which takes place at the same time. Childcare for children under 3 years old is offered for parents who would like to attend Adult Bible Class.

Trinity’s Sunday School program uses the Enduring Faith curriculum, which follows a same-age classroom model so students learn and grow in faith alongside their peers. There they explore the Bible and learn more about God’s plan for their earthly and eternal lives.

Each week, every Sunday School grade level studies the same Bible story in age-appropriate ways. This allows families to discuss the Sunday School topic with children of every age. A family page is also sent home each week, giving parents the opportunity to read the lesson as it was presented and talk with their children about what they have learned.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, Trinity Lutheran Church hosts a Vacation Bible School for the children of the congregation, as well as the community. Trinity’s VBS takes place in the evenings and includes dinner, making it easier for the children of working parents to participate. For more information please contact, Melissa Boheme at

Easter Egg Hunt

Each year, Trinity Lutheran Church offers an Easter Egg Hunt for the children of our neighborhood, as well as our church members. In addition to a massive egg hunt with more than 1,000 eggs, the event also includes many fun craft stations, cookie decorating, and the retelling of the Easter story through an engaging object lesson.
