At Holy Trinity, we value the opportunity to form relationships with our young people which serve to both discover and ignite the faith within them! We love the passion and energy that our youth bring to our community, and their willingness to challenge us in our walk with Christ. We seek to support our youth as they ask questions and grow in faith.
Opportunities for youth to get involved at Holy Trinity include...
Students in 7th grade and up can participate in confirmation class with Pastor Katie on Wednesday nights. This class tackles the history of our tradition, deciphers parts of the Bible, and gets youth thinking about the decision to be confirmed and take responsibility for what faith means in their own lives.
Sunday School is an opportunity for children age 3 through 6th grade to form relationships with church mentors and to learn about their faith through Bible stories. Each Sunday starts off with a chance to sing praise together and have fun while sharing God's love with one another. Children love putting quarters in the infamous "quarter tube" to experience the joy of giving as they support Water to Thrive.
Middle School Youth Group
Students in grades 7-8 participate in discussions each Sunday to accompany what they learn in confirmation class. Mentors challenge students to share God's love in their everyday lives, and help address any questions that youth raise as they continue to grow.
High School Youth Group
Our older youth take on challenging topics as they discuss how their faith applies to real world issues such as science & religion, the environment, balancing busy schedules, making decisions, and serving others. These discussions challenge them to take responsibility for making their faith central in their lives. The youth group also builds a strong community through traveling together to youth group retreats and mission trips, volunteering for day camp and other church events, and challenging each other to be people of faith every day.
A mission trip to Chillicothe, Ohio, was held June 24 to July 2. Click here for a news article about the Chillicothe mission trip in which Holy Trinity youth partook.
Thank you to the generous people who lent tools, donated cash, gave us gift cards, and, most importantly, opened their homes and hearts to us as we
assisted them in Chillicothe.
Meals from the Heartland
Meals from the Heartland is ministry that was started by our high school youth group, and has been an exciting outreach opportunity for our community.
