Trinity Student Ministry currently serves our families with students 6th through 8th grade. It’s our privilege to partner with you in making disciples of Jesus who love God, one another, and our city.
WHEN AND WHERE IS TRINITY STUDENT MINISTRY?
Trinity Jr. High participates in the main service for the first portion, with their families. They will be dismissed after the first few songs to meet their leaders in the back and head to their own youth space.
WHAT WILL MY TEENAGER DO?
Sunday mornings at Trinity Jr. High involve times of teaching, fun activities and small group time. We will be following the Sunday sermon topic and passage with our teaching and small group time. Our goal is to encourage conversations between students and parents throughout the week.
WHO IS LEADING THE JR. HIGH MINISTRY?
We have been blessed with a team of Westminster Seminary students will serve as Student Ministry Interns leading Sunday mornings. In addition, we will recruit, train, and empower additional volunteer leaders. Hint: Parents make great volunteer leaders!
WHAT ABOUT COMMUNION SUNDAY?
With a desire to include our Jr High students in the receiving of communion (those that have made a profession of faith in Jesus) there will be no Jr. High on the 1st Sunday of each month. They will sit with their families and be able to participate in communion that morning. The other 3-4 Sundays of the month they will break out as normal to their own room (after worship). Note – children’s ministry will keep their normal programming and will not remain in the worship service during communion.
IS THERE CURRENTLY A MIDWEEK PROGRAM?
At this point we only offer Jr. High on Sunday mornings though our hope and prayer is to start a midweek group sometime this fall.
WHAT ABOUT A HIGH SCHOOL MINISTRY?
At this point we only offer Jr. High on Sunday mornings though our hope and prayer is to start a midweek High School group sometime this fall. In regard to Sundays, we value High School students as a part of our main worship service.
TRINITY STUDENT MINISTRY VALUES
Gospel-centered: We believe Jesus is the “clue” to understanding Christianity and the “glue” that keeps us passionate rather than passive in our faith.
Relationally-rich: Discipleship must be anchored upon loving and trusting relationships.
Discipleship-focused: We intend to inspire our students with a vision for following Jesus, making disciples, serving their neighbors, and engaging the world. In order to accomplish this, the Trinity Student Ministry will focus more on heart transformation than simply upon information transfer.
Missionally-Sensitive: We desire to create an environment where students from various backgrounds and perspectives are welcomed to find friendship and explore faith. We also intend to equip our students to actively share their faith with their friends.
Experientially-fun: Jr. / Sr. High students want to have a lot of fun. We desire the Trinity Student Ministry to be a compelling, attractive, safe, and fun experience.
