There is no greater joy, privilege, or responsibility that we have as the family of God than to raise our children with saving faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This faith is given to our children in their baptism and makes them a part of God's family.
Because of Jesus' words in Matthew 28:19-20, we place a high value on Christian Education here at Trinity. We want to ensure that each generation is taught to know God and the wonderful gifts that he gives both for our lives here on earth and for eternity. We offer a vareity of opportunities for Christian education throughout the week as we partner with you as you raise your children in the faith.
A great foundation in God’s Word starts with Sunday School. Make Sunday School part of your family’s weekly routine. Classes start with three year olds in our preschool room and continue through high school
September through May. Sunday School starts at 9:15 a.m. and concludes at 10:15 a.m. – convenient for either worship time! Worship with your child before or after Sunday School.

What happens if the weather is bad?
In the case of inclimate weather information will be posted on our Facebook page. Midweek will follow Algona Public Schools. If school is cancelled then Midweek will be too. Sunday School will usually happen if we are still having church. If we only have one service then we won't have Sunday School. Make sure to sign up for text message updates so you'll never be left wondering.
Can my friend come with me to Sunday School or Midweek?
Yes! Of course! We love having friends with us at Sunday School or Midweek. Please let the teacher know that the friend is visiting. If a friend wants to keep coming, we ask that their parent fill out our online registration form so that we have emergency contact information.
Where do we meet for Sunday School?
Sunday School always starts with a special opening in the church basement at 9:15 on Sunday morning. Stairs to the basement are located in the narthex (entry way) of the church. If you've never been down there before, please ask an Elder or an Usher (both have nametags on) and they will point you in the right direction. After opening, each class will go to their classroom which will either be in the main floor or basement of our education wing. Please ask your child's teacher if you'd like to know where they are meeting.
Where do we meet for Midweek?
Midweek begins with an opening devotion in the Life Center at 6:45 on Wednesday night. We ask that the students be present and ready to start at 6:45 because the devotion is connected to the lesson for that evening. Students typically sit with their classes for opening.
Who can I contact if I have questions?
You can contact the church office during the week (firstname.lastname@example.org or 295-3518) and Bonita or one of the pastors will be able to answer your questions. You can also contact Tami Hankins (Board of Education Chair) or Joy Weier (Sunday School Superintendent) if you would like.
