Welcome to the Trinity Youth Page


The full Youth Ministries calendar for 2018-2019 can be found here.

Trinity offers a thriving youth program for young people in sixth through twelfth grade.  Youth group meets most Sunday evenings from 6-8 p.m. and is led by an adult youth minister.  Our youth program offers a balance of faith, fun, fellowship, and food. Dinner is served at evening youth group meetings.   

In addition to Sunday night youth group, every other Sunday there is a morning offering for middle school age youth.  There are also various opportunities to serve in worship, youth enjoy special trips and activities away from Trinity campus with other local Episcopal youth groups for activities throughout the year.

Sunday Morning for Youth

Every other Sunday, Middle School age youth are invited to join Patrick, our Associate for Youth Ministries for fun, fellowship, service, and discussion.  On off-Sundays, they are invited to be with Patrick or their families during worship.  High School age youth are always invited to fully participate in worship.   

Sunday Evening Youth Group

Youth Group meets most Sunday nights from 6-8 p.m. for food, fun, fellowship, and faith.  We share a meal, play some games, get to know one another, share spiritual reflection, and close with quiet and prayer.

 

Field Trips and Diocesan Youth Events
Trinity youth are part of a larger network of Episcopal Churches in the Diocese of California. We join with other youth groups throughout the year for fun and faith formation everywhere from Disneyland to Diocesan youth camps, to communities inviting service projects. 

Acolyting
Youth are encouraged to train for and take roles during worship as acolytes. Confirmed youth are invited to read scripture during the liturgy of the word at the 10:00 service. 


Mission Trips
Each summer our youth carry out mission work together. Recent mission trips have been to New Orleans, South Carolina, Alaska, and Ferguson/St. Louis, and Los Angeles. In preparation for these trips, youth raise funds to support their costs and learn about the area they will be visiting and the people they will meet. Mission trips are especially formative in young people's understanding of our part in a larger community of faith. Our youth come together as a team on mission trips and have a great time doing it.



Mission Trip 2018

From July 5th-July 12th, 13 members of the Trinity Youth Group traveled to Austin, Texas  While in Austin, youth served at El Beun Samaritano assisting a summer camp.  They also attended the Episcopal Church's General Convention, a triennial event where Episcopalians gather from around the country and the world to participate in the governance of the church as a body.  Trinity youth spent a day chapernoning the children of attendees of General Convention taking them on a field trip to the State Capitol and the Texas History Museum.  Trinity youth also hosted an event at General Convention that invited all youth in the area to come and spend time together and get to know each other.  Over 120 attended this event from over more than half a dozen dioceses, churches and various Episcopal affiliates including the Bishop of California and the Bishop of Texas.  Youth also recieved a great tour of the city which included visiting Graffiti Park and getting to leave their mark on the city with spray paint and eating delicious barbecue.
