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. 

Questions? Please contact us!

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.


Confirmation is an opportunity for youth to dig deep and learn what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and part of the United Methodist Church. It is an amazing experience. Youth are often surprised by how much they discover about God and themselves. They also find that they enjoy Confirmation and have fun! At the end of the Confirmation classes youth are presented with the opportunity to decide to confirm their Christian faith and either be baptized or confirm baptismal vows given on their behalf as infants.

Confirmation is open to any 8th-12th grader who has not yet been confirmed. Please download the confirmation packet to find more information about the Confirmation schedule, as well as information about choosing a mentor for the program. It is requested that youth sign up by January 15, 2023. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

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.
