OLD TAPPAN, N.J. -- Old Tappan's Trinity Reformed Church will be hosting a child-friendly newcomers event on Sunday, Oct. 2.
Members of the community interested in learning more about Trinity are welcome to attend.
"Trinity offers a safe and welcoming environment for all those who desire an engaging worship experience and loving faith community," said Pastor Kirsten Shepler-Ross. "We are especially intentional about welcoming young families and children and recognize what a blessing their presence is in our midst."
"We've been so thrilled to find such a welcoming church where we can grow spiritually as a family," said Anna Lui, of Old Tappan. "Trinity is a hidden gem in the community, supporting not just its members but also local charitable endeavors."
Trinity hosts a Sunday School, a children's sermon every Sunday during worship service and a social setting after services in the Fellowship Hall, with refreshments for the whole family. Each Sunday, the church service begins with a children's sermon, before kids from 3 to 13 go on to their respective classes.
"I came to Trinity in search of a Sunday school program for my children to attend and found so much more," said Maria Passarotti, of Tappan.
"We were welcomed with open hearts and easily found our place within the congregation. The kids look forward to Sunday School and seeing their new friends every week. I look forward to the peace, the message, the community and the feeling of being part of something bigger."
RSVPs are required: do so by contacting Shepler-Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-664-5904, by Sunday, Sept. 25. The event will be from 11 a.m. to noon.
"I'm so happy we found a warm and laid-back church where my children can learn about the Bible, Jesus and how to be a good and kind Christian," said Diana Merida, of River Vale.
The church is on 292 Old Tappan Rd., in Old Tappan. For more information, visit its website.
