We believe that there is a place for everyone here at Trinity. Wherever you are in your journey of life or faith, the Students Ministry at Trinity will always be a welcoming place for you to feel loved, encouraged, and empowered to live an abundant life we are called into by Jesus. A place at the table with Jesus is always set for you, and we will continue to create a safe place for you to explore who Jesus is or for you to dive deeper into a relationship with Him.


Students will follow the same guidelines as adults. Students here at Trinity experience God through worshiping together, growing in our faith with each other, living in community with those around us, and serving the world. Our weekly gatherings consist of worship on Sunday morning at 9:00 or 11:00 AM, Youth Cafe or Confirmation (Seasonal) on Sunday morning at 10:00 AM, and our Sunday fellowship gathering from 5:00-7:00 PM. Every month we have a series of different events like; small group meetings, retreats, lock-ins, bible studies, pastoral-led classes, confirmation, and much more.

Trinity also reaches out to its community and helps build relationships by helping each other. We have monthly trips out to our partners like; Oak Grove–Bellemeade neighborhood and elementary school, Sherbourne UMC Food Pantry, the Tuckahoe area schools, UMFS, Shalom Farms, and CARITAS, and many others. We also offer week-long service experiences here in Richmond, and around the United States.

MFUGE Philadelphia Summer Missions 2022

Trinity Students are headed to Philadelphia on Summer Missions July 5-9, 2022

Deposits due upon registration: $60

Cost : $340*

*includes deposit

At MFuge, Youth are divided into groups for Bible study and ministry based on the type of work they request. Adult leaders from our church accompany Bible study groups to the ministry site. Lunch is provided on campus before groups leave for site.

During the day our youth will be challenged and stretched as individuals; in the evenings, we’ll have an opportunity to build group unity over dinner, worship, fellowship and church group devotions.

MFuge is designed to give youth a mission experience that opens their eyes to similar opportunities they may have to serve in their own communities, learning to live life each day on mission!

No refunds will be granted following June 14, 2022.


Summer Local Serve 2022

Trinity Student Summer Local Serve July 25-29, 2022

Trinity Middle and High School Youth are serving for a special week-long local mission here in Richmond! 

What to expect: We’ll be serving at Trinity’s Kid Camp in the morning and then headed to various service sites in the afternoons also while enjoying some fun evening activities and a time of worship before we spend the night at Trinity! 

Early bird before June 15th: $50
Cost after Jun 15th: $60

Arrive: Monday, July 25th at 8:30 AM
Depart Friday, July 29th at 1:00 PM


Trinity’s Summer Local Serve is a time of fellowship, service, and discipleship. Youth will serve in their communities while growing deeper in faith through worship and group discussions. 

Please note: We understand that it is not always feasible for youth to take off work or forgo every obligation they have during the week of Summer Local Serve. We offer a lot of week-long opportunities in the summer and don’t expect youth to quit all their responsibilities every week! 
That’s why during Local Serve we ask that you come and participate in the majority of the event and that you particularly participate during evening worship and discussion as much as possible. 

If your child isn’t up for staying the night, please indicate that under anything we should know. 

Summer Worship and Games (SWAG)  is coming! 

August 8-11 from 6-9 PM

Students Serve!

Trinity’s students serve in a variety of ways. We have many opportunities to serve our neighbors during the year, we typically spend a week in service each summer, and students are encouraged to serve at church in various ways on Sunday mornings.
