When Trinitas finished its first year in 2006, the school was leasing four classrooms from a small urban church in Grand Rapids. Recess took place in a parking lot and gym in a basement. The office had room enough for a copier and one small table. After the school expanded through 8th grade and enrollment grew, Trinitas moved in to the Sunday School rooms of the church building it now occupies. Classrooms were larger and more numerous, and the campus included a playground and gym. Over time, the congregation’s youth and early childhood ministries have grown, and constraints within the existing space signal that the time has come for a move.
As Trinitas looks to the future, the school is working with St. Mark Lutheran Church to transition in to the classroom wing of its building. St. Mark Lutheran, located in Kentwood, has the space and amenities to accommodate a larger student body and classrooms which will offer students and teachers a dedicated learning environment. Look for an announcement about open houses in the months to come!
