Youth Ministries

The General Conference of The United Methodist Church states that the primary task of youth ministry is to:

  • Love youth where they are
  • Encourage them in developing their relationship with God
  • Provide them with opportunities for nurture and growth
  • Challenge them to respond to God’s call to serve in their communities

Our programs are designed to meet the spiritual, social, and emotional needs of our children and youth in grades 6 - 12.

 

Church School

Classes meet every Sunday 9 to 10 a.m. from September to May. The classes offer Christian formation opportunities under the direction of adult volunteer teachers. Registration is open all year and youth can join the classes at any time.

Students in the middle school class explore the Bible, Christian themes, and the intersection of faith and life through discussions, activities and resources from Youth Ministry Partners.

Students in the high school class also explore the Bible, Christian themes, and the intersection of faith and life. This class has also been known to make Play-Doh sculptures and to cover a wall in sticky notes.

 

Confirmation 

All students in 9th grade (or above) are invited to participate in Trinity’s confirmation program. This one-year-long program prepares youth to confirm their baptism, to explore their identity within the community of faith, and to become official members of Trinity United Methodist Church. This program consists of special Sunday morning classes once a month during the church school hour. It also includes special sessions once a month after church. Mark your calendars! There will be a Confirmation 101 session for students and their parents/guardians on September 29th after church in the Primary Room.

 

Junior & Senior High Youth Fellowship

YF is open to all youth in grades 6 to 12. We welcome new members at any time.

We meet weekly on Sunday evenings from September through May, share a meal together, play games, and participate in a variety of projects, mission initiatives, and events.
