Ministering to the youth of our congregation and community is a vital part of our focus at Trinity, and we have a number of activities to help in God's work to create, strengthen, and activate the faith of our young people.
Two nights a month the church is full of smiles, laughs and love. In the warmer months the fields behind the church are filled with kids playing dodgeball, capture the flag, manhunt and other fun group games. In cooler months the kids move inside to play more dodgeball, human pin ball, Wii games, crafts, ping pong, and board games. Each night pizza or a specially-prepared meal is served.
We divide the youth into two groups:
Kid Venture 3RD – 5TH
Confirmation is a 2-year program for students beginning in 5th grade. During this time, students are taught the basics of Christianity and the Lutheran Confessions, and how these apply to our lives. At the conclusion of the two years, students are given the opportunity to be "confirmed" in their faith - at which time they are welcomed to participate in Holy Communion. Classes are held on Thursday nights. If you are interested in our Confirmation program, please contact the church office for more information.
