Youth Activities

Bible Studies, Discussion Time, Engaging Activities

Youth can participate in a myriad of events each month, from Sunday morning youth Sunday School in the youth room at each campus, to Sunday evening Youth Nights at family host locations. Youth meet new friends, strengthen old friendships and have time to talk about real-life issues in a setting with appropriate adult guidance of discussion topics.

Serving Others

Serving others is one of the hallmarks of faith life at Trinity, and youth are no exception. One of the greatest joys in youth ministry is to see the smiles of satisfaction as young adult realize the joy of serving others as the love of Christ flows through them. Service activities include providing childcare for parents’ night out events, serving an Easter breakfast, and setting up garage sales among other things. A servant event trip somewhere within the United States is in the planning stages, too!
