Youth

Our Vision

Youth Ministry exists to:

1. Make disciples within the youth group.

2. Equip teens to make disciples in their own families, church, school and beyond.

Thursdays: Youth Group is for all 7-12th graders, and meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 PM throughout the school year. (Youth Group Praise Team practices at 5:30 PM.)

Sundays: Join us for Sunday School at 9:10 AM and Worship Service at 10:30 AM. See what's happening this Sunday

The Youth Group participates in Camp Monadnock's winter retreat, The Hartford Project, and an annual “Youth Sunday” service at Trinity. The teens also are involved in service projects to the surrounding communities on a regular basis.

Thursday Night Youth Group Schedule

Youth Group meets every Thursday evening.

  • Games

7:00pm - 8:30pm

  • Worship, Lesson & Small Groups (Teens are divided by age/gender for discussion time with their small group leader.)
Testimony Night 

This is a special monthly event on the First Thursday where the teens enjoy dinner together and have the opportunity to hear from other church members and teens how the Lord is working in and through their lives. We share a family-style meal, which is often prepared by a parent and enjoy worship together by our Youth Group Praise Team.
