YOUTH FAITH FORMATION

Child Faith Development

Youth are a Vital Part of the Church Today

Trinity has many Faith Formation programs including fun events that educate kids about God’s love for them and the world. From toddlers to teens, there’s an age-appropriate program for each stage in a child’s faith development.

Currently all meetings and events are online. Please contact the church office for Zoom link info.

Sunday School

Trinity offers Sunday School for all children, ages 3 through middle school on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m., between worship services, from August through May. All kids are welcome to participate, whether they are member of Trinity or a visitor.

Sunday School begins with opening at 9:15 a.m. in Trinity’s Basement Hall where we sing fun songs, pray, celebrate birthdays, and get ready to learn.

Class begins at 9:30 a.m. in classrooms divided by grade. All Sunday School classes have 2 teachers present at all times and classes are held in Trinity’s basement classrooms.  Parent/Guardian pick-up is at the rooms at 10:20 a.m.

Confirmation

Trinity’s Confirmation instruction is a three year learning experience for our middle-school age youth. The primary purpose of Trinity’s Confirmation Ministry is two-fold:

  1. To help our young people prepare themselves for a public affirmation of the faith in which they were baptized (confirmation)
  2. To assist our young people to see that they can be leaders in and for the church

6th Grade classes are an introduction to The Bible, its stories, wisdom, and truths.

The 7th Grade year of Confirmation Class is designed to teach youth about the foundations of the liturgical church and Lutheran identity, studying Luther’s small catechism including the Lord’s Prayer, Apostles’ Creed, 10 Commandments and more. Our hope is that the students begin to plant seeds of their own personal theology, ethics, and morality.

8th Grade is a year where youth make their faith their own, including learning about other religions in the world, issues of peace & justice, and that we are called as Christians to serve others and work to improve our world.

Youth Groups

Trinity’s Youth Ministry is headed up by our Director of Youth & Family Ministries. Our youth groups typically gather for fellowship and fun group activities at least one time a month, but sometimes more often.  The groups include:

LOFT
9th-12th grade

Christ’s Crew
6th-8th grade

Daring Triniators
K-5th grade

Day Camp

An annual day camp (M-F, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., last week in June) that includes trained Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp counselors leading large group singing & games, Bible Study, crafts and fellowship. Each day, the whole group goes on a field trip somewhere in Boulder to sing for the elderly, play at the pool, visit museums, and more! Typically, the youth participate in a service project during the week as well.

Trinity Youth Community Fund

The Trinity Youth Community Fund (TYCF) is an important part of Trinity’s youth ministry.  Each year, Trinity’s 8th-12th graders identify, learn about, serve, and gift over $6,000 annually to area nonprofits, with much of the funds coming from their annual fundraiser of parking cars for University of Colorado football games, and from the church’s operating budget. Started in 2002, the program’s goal is to engage our teens in their community and help them put their faith into action outside the walls of Trinity. Over 60 non-profit organizations throughout Boulder County and the Denver-Metro area have been granted funds from this ministry since 2002, and to date over $105,000 has been awarded.
