Youth Group

Youth Group

The centerpiece of Trinity UMC Student Ministry is Sunday Night Youth Group which runs during the school year.

Typically, our Youth Group starts with dinner and then follows will follow a Large Group/Small Group model.

During Youth Group, the youth will be in a larger group setting for forty-five minutes while they participate in a few games, hear a message and have some worship music; they also spend thirty to forty-five in small groups where they will do group activities and have a group discussion about what was shared in large group. Small group time is when youth will be in peer groups of their own age and have the opportunity to make friends and grow in faith in a more intimate environment.

This Fall as we adjust by catering dinner for youth, please bring $3 each week for Student Dinner.

We have registration for Youth Group that we can form Youth Small Groups during Youth Group.

**Please note that we have temporarily moved Youth Group to 4:30-6:00 PM
