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.

Children's Church

Trinity provides two opportunities for Elementary-aged youth and under.  On the 2nd Sunday of the month, during worship, we offer Children’s Church where youth, after the Children’s Sermon, hear the lessons and theme for the day at their level with adult volunteers.  The youth then return to worship at the time of the Offering.  On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we offer LIFT, an Intergenerational Sunday School at 10:45am that includes snack, craft, singing, physical activity, and more.  Its always a fun time.  All kids are welcome to participate, whether they are member of Trinity or a visitor.


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:

High School
9th-12th grade

Middle School
6th-8th grade

K-5th grade

Day Camp

Our annual day camp (last week in June, Monday – Thursday, 9 AM – 3 PM ) 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 or the metro area. Typically, the youth participate in a service project during the week as well.  The 2023 Day Camp dates are June 26-29th.  Register for the 2023 Camp here!

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. 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 $113,000 has been awarded.  The criteria for 2023 has now been set, and the youth are accepting applications through March 29th.
