About Youth at Holy Trinity:At Holy Trinity, Confirmation is held on Pentecost Sunday of your 8th Grade year. From then on, you are a fully-adult member of the congregation — although we do offer special “youth only” (except for the chaperones)opportunities.

You will see that our Post-Confirmation (9th – 12th Grade) Youth volunteer right along with other adults as ushers, readers, choir members, Instrumentalists, AIDS Dinner cooks etc.

But we also offer “youth-only” opportunities. Youth have their own Bible Study on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour. They also do fun “youth-only” events like overnight lock-ins, Movie-Nights, and midnight bowling (for example)

Watch the Echos and the bulletin announcements for details.
