Youth can get involved in many ways: youth Sunday when the youth lead the service, small groups for connections within your grade, mission projects locally like CROP walk/Rebuilding Together/Shoebox Project, mission trips in the summer, Living Nativity, music in worship, weekend retreats for high school and middle schoolers in the fall, youth group on Sunday nights to connect and play games, confirmation, 30 Hour Fast, and so much more. 

Spiritual

Formation

 
10:10
A youth Sunday school style class is for 6th-12th graders each Sunday morning at 10:10. During the pandemic, we met outside while the weather was favorable. During Lent 2021 we will have a Zoom Bible Study.
 
Confirmation
A 9 month course, open to those in 8th Grade and older. The course meets on the third Tuesday of the month from 5-7pm.  
The course discusses Presbyterianism and Faith. The class is serious, but they do have creative moments as evidenced by the Welcome To Trinity video made by one of the classes.
 
Youth Sunday
Each year the youth lead a worship service including all aspects: ushers, singing, scripture, sermon, and prayers.
 

Youth

Programs

 
Youth Group
Meets on Sundays from 7-8:30pm and is for youth in 6th grade through 12th grade.  While the weather, light, and pandemic requirements are favorable, we meet in person outside at the church. In February we will be on Zoom until the size of the gathering is in line with the health restrictions.  Youth Group activities vary from serious questions, silly contests, games, and more.  We invite you to come and try it out as this is the main gathering of the youth.
 
Small Groups
meet each third Sunday of the month in person and is a chance for the youth to connect in a smaller setting. The groups are divided by gender and middle school or high school.  Lead by two church volunteers, the groups have a topic each month for discussion.
 
Retreats/Special Events
The youth aim to have two weekend retreats (one for middle school and one for high school) each fall. In addition the youth often do day events.

Youth

Mission

 
Mission Trips
The youth plan for a mission trip each summer.  Typically they head to a nearby state to spend a week working for a community. Some past examples include: flood clean up, landscaping, dry wall, sorting clothes/food, painting, and more. 
 
Thirty Hour Fast
Each winter the youth do a mission focused event at Trinity. In the past, they have raised money for different charities by fasting for thirty hours.
 
Special Events
The youth as a whole take part in the CROP walk, Shoebox Project, VBS, and other mission events at the church.
