The Pumpkins are here!

Help Sell Pumpkins:

Sign up to help sell pumpkins.

Trinity Students Ministry has once again partnered with Pumpkins USA to raise money for its mission and ministry work that will be done in the 2019-2020 school year. Pumpkins USA works in cooperation with the Navajo Nation, they grow 1,200 acres or approximately 2 square miles of pumpkins and employee over 700 Native Americans during our harvest months of September and October. We also have a full time off-season NM staff that is comprised of entirely Native Americans. This has a positive and lasting impact on a region with 42% unemployment.The students will be taking multiple trips this year to serve others who are in need of support. We will be serving in places like Baltimore, North Carolina and here in Richmond. The money raised by the sale of pumpkins will go to help offset the cost for these trips. It helps us use more of our money to affect the most help possible in the communities that we serve. Thank you so much to everyone who has volunteered at the patch by working a shift or helping unload, and a special thank you to everyone who has supported our youth ministry by purchasing pumpkins and gourds.Pumpkin Patch Hours:-Mon.-Sat. 12-7, Sun. 12-4

Vlog placeholder

The high school students from Trinity took a trip to Decatur, Alabama to serve with the students of the Church at Stone River. While we were there, we partnered with the Circle Ranch to help refurbish the gym so that the children that live there will have a place to have fun and grow with each other. The Circle Ranch is a nonprofit that helps support foster families by providing affordable housing with enough space for everyone to have their own room. They currently have three 8-10 bedroom houses for families and are working on more! We worked to refinish the game room and workout room, by framing in a wall, hanging drywall, painting and doing trim work. In the inside of the gym we hung some plywood on the walls behind the basketball goals to provide some more protection for the walls. Outside we did a variety of landscaping jobs, and replaced some siding, as well as painting the exterior walls. Finally, in the back bathrooms, we replaced all of the plumbing and installed new toilets, as well as demoing and refinishing the walls, ceilings, and floors. In the evenings we explored the idea of living in community as on big family. Check out our vlog series created by our students to see some of the ins and outs of our trip to Decatur!

There are six student produced videos–one from each day. Play them all through or use the controls to skip to another day.

2019 confirmation class

We began this intense journey of confirmation back in January and culminated it this past Sunday with the celebration of Pentecost. This years confirmation class was made up of 18 wonderfully bright students. We studied everything from the Bible, church history, the Wesley brothers, to servant leadership modeled by Jesus. Through the leadership of our small group mentors (Suzanne Axtell, Brad Dike, Steve McPhail, and Catherine Taylor), we were able to dive deeper into the topics of our faith and develop a better understanding of what it means to be a follower of Christ. These amazing young people have taken the first steps into a life of walking with God and committing themselves to a journey of continual spiritual growth by walking with us here at Trinity!
