LifeGroups are smaller groups of people that gather together outside of our regular gatherings for the purpose of prayer, Bible study, true fellowship, and the development of discipleship relationships. We recognize a need for church families to meet in more intimate settings outside of our auditorium or fellowship hall so that we can truly “exhort one another every day” as Scripture commands us to do.

Senior Saints Ministry
Our Senior Saints enjoy luncheons together from September to December, then February to May. They also take day trips to sights around the New England area. There is a Senior Saints Sunday School class at 9:30am in the Activity Room.
Our ministry goal is to bring glory to God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ, and that goal filters into our ministry to children. We desire to partner together with parents in the discipleship of their children.
During our Sunday School hour (9:30 – 10:15am), our infants through one-year-olds will be in safe, clean, and well-staffed nurseries based on their age. Children two-years-old through sixth grade will be in age-specific classes where they are taught a gospel-centered view of the Scriptures using games, crafts, and an age-appropriate lesson from the Bible. Those in seventh through twelfth grades will attend a Bible study together, where our youth staff lead them in an applicable Bible study.
During our Sunday morning worship gathering (10:30-noon), infants through one-year-olds will again be in a safe, age-appropriate environment. Two through four-year-olds will also begin the worship gathering in their own classes, where they will not only have an opportunity to play together but be taught a lesson from the Bible. Children in kindergarten through sixth grade will begin this time with their family in our auditorium and will be dismissed before the sermon to be taught the Bible on their level. When our church family celebrates the Lord’s Table, these students will stay in the main worship gathering for the duration of the service.
On Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:45pm) during the school year, nursery care is again provided for infants through one-year-olds. Two-year-olds will be in a class together to receive age-appropriate care and teaching. Three-year-olds through sixth grade attend Truth Trackers, a curriculum that encourages Scripture memory, weekly Bible study with family, games, crafts, and Bible teaching on their level.
Seventh through twelfth graders attend the CREW ministry led by our Youth Pastor and the youth staff, where they will engage in singing, games, clear and relevant Bible teaching, and small group sessions to help apply Bible truth to their lives. CREW also provides occasional activities, mission trips, and summer camp opportunities.
Men's & Women's Ministries
We desire to see our men and women grow together into greater Christlikeness with the ability to apply the Scriptures to their family, work, and relational roles. At times, we will gather separately as men and women to strengthen our understanding of the Bible and to build relationships.
There is a new ladies’ Bible study beginning on Thursday, January 31st. This is a 10-week study using the book God of Creation by Jen Wilkin. The dates for the study are 1/31, 2/7, 2/21, 3/7-21, 4/4-18, and 5/2.
Our men will enjoy a time of breakfast, Bible study, and fellowship every other month in the Activity Room. The next meeting is January 26 at 7:30 – 9:00 am. This will be the first of six bi-monthly men’s breakfasts. The other dates are March 23, May 25, July 27, September 28, and November 23.
Freedom That Lasts
Every Thursday evening at 7pm on our church campus, a group of discipleship-focused men and women gather together for Bible study that specifically targets areas of our lives that can dominate us and turn our gaze away from our identity in Jesus Christ. This group emphasizes the finished work of Jesus Christ as not only the ground for our salvation, but is also the source of our growth into being more like Jesus. If you are seeking accountability and discipling relationships, you are welcome and encouraged to attend.
LEAP is a nine-month program that typically follows the Trinity Christian School calendar. We provide early care beginning at 7:30am. Our morning program runs from 8:30 to 11:30. We also offer a multi-age enrichment class from 11:30 to 2:45 and extended day care until 5:15. The goal of LEAP Preschool is to provide a positive first educational experience in an environment that is safe, nurturing and fun. Our philosophy is based on 1 John 4:8 … God is love. All children will be loved and cared for in a positively reinforced learning environment that promotes exploration and interaction. Social skills (sharing, getting along with others, respecting others), emotional growth (positive self-concept), intellectual reasoning (think, reason, question, experiment), physical development (gross/fine motor concepts as well as sound health, safety, and nutritional practices) and spiritual growth (God loves and forgives us, believing and receiving Him will give us eternal life) are critical components of our curriculum. Throughout the school year we host several events for our parents, including an ice cream social in August, a Christmas program in December, and our end of the year program, which includes TCS kindergarten graduation, in May.
Trinity Christian School
Since 1984, Trinity Christian School has been an integral ministry of Trinity Baptist Church with the purpose of continuing the mission of our church: “to glorify God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ.” This objective compels TCS to train its students spiritually, academically, and socially for lifelong service to Christ.
Trinity Christian School accomplishes this goal in three ways that parallel Christ’s development in Luke 2:52. First of all, the administration and staff consider themselves not as replacements but as partners with the parents in the spiritual formation process. The school also chooses disciple-oriented discipline techniques in an attempt to reach the heart of the students instead of simply changing an undesirable behavior. Bible doctrine and principles are faithfully presented, but all subject areas are also taught through the lens of a Biblical worldview so that our students can know how they should live and how they can rightly apply God’s Word to the culture and context in which they find themselves today.
Secondly, Trinity develops its students by challenging them to increase in wisdom by means of a regionally accredited academic program that meets and exceeds the requirements of the state of New Hampshire. TCS employs a combination of Christian textbooks from A Beka Books and BJU Press to support its spiritual emphases and to provide a traditional approach to its classroom instruction. Instructors utilize these books and their own experience, not just merely to promote rote memory, but more importantly to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The Lord has blessed TCS with a beautiful facility that includes large classrooms, most of which are outfitted with projection screens for presentations. A science laboratory provides students with hands-on opportunities to put into practice what they learned during lectures. Trinity Christian School is also able to offer dual enrollment courses.
Lastly, TCS provides its students with opportunities for social development as students learn to use their abilities for the Lord in activities such as athletics, music, choir, hand-bells, and art classes. Girls have the opportunity to compete in volleyball and basketball, while guys can engage in soccer and basketball. All middle school and high school students are able each year to compete in a regional fine arts competition, and high school students may also travel to the American Association of Christian Schools’ National Fine Arts Competition each April. Older students also mentor and disciple younger students in our BIG-little discipleship program. TCS students take Dramatic Speech and Public Speaking courses so that they learn to comfortably and accurately communicate their thoughts orally and in writing.
Trinity Christian School hires faculty who embrace faith in Christ and look to nurture students in that faith while teaching our students from a distinctively Christian worldview. All aspects of education at TCS incorporate God’s power displayed in creation, man’s fallen nature as a result of his sin, Christ’s redemption of fallen man through His death on the cross, and God’s power displayed through the resurrection of His Son.
Deuteronomy 6 and Ephesians 6 demonstrate to Christian families that their children are the initial point where the disciple-making process should commence. If you would like to consider partnering with TCS to help train your child(ren) in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, please visit our website (tcsnh.com) for more information or contact us at (603) 225-5410.
