Christ’s Crew Youth Group
Christ’s Crew is the middle school (6th-8th) youth group at Trinity. These youth meet weekly for confirmation on Wednesdays, 5:45-7pm, as well as once a month for a fellowship or service event. There’s also a Christ’s Crew hour during Sunday School mornings, at 9:15am during the school year – this time is based on fun interaction versus heavy learning since they get that during Confirmation classes. Additionally, we meet several times during the summer plus go on an annual summer trip called Day Trippers.
Christ’s Crew Typical Yearly Events:
- Junior High Youth Gathering
- 30 Hour Planned Famine
- CU football game
- Halloween Carnival
- Serve Easter Breakfast
- Overnights at Church
Youth are an integral part of the congregation at Trinity. The older members value the youth for their energy and commitment they bring to the Trinity community, and the youth value the older members for their wisdom and support. Trinity youth are not the church of tomorrow; they are the church today!
Trinity’s Youth Ministry is headed up by Chad Nelsen, Director of Youth & Household Ministries.
Upcoming Middle School Youth Events
Mon, July 9, 9:00am – 4:00pm: This year, we are trying something new and Christ’s Crew (6th-8th Grade) & LOFT (9th-12th Grade) are headed to Water World TOGETHER! Cost is $40, not including lunch. Plan to bring either a sack lunch or cash for lunch inside the park. Any drinks must be factory-sealed and not in a glass bottle. If you’d like to come, please let Chad know by July 6! Friends are welcome too!
July 15 – 21: Rainbow Trail Each of you received a letter from Pastor Mark including details for registering for Confirmation Camp. Rainbow Trail is an AMAZING, life changing, and faith filled place. Your week at camp, quite honestly, may be your best week of the year. Please fill out the form that came with the letter and bring in the $100 deposit by Feb. 11 to finalize your registration. Checks can be made out to Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp. *Let the office know ASAP if you plan to use your CU Parking youth account money to cover your deposit.
Summer Mondays: Christ’s Crew will get together on a few summer Monday nights to share a meal, play games and talk about faith at different families’ homes. The next evening will be July 30th at 6 pm at Campbell & Sawyer Smith’s home.
CU PARKING: We will once again be doing parking for CU Home Football games at the Basemar Shopping Center at Broadway & Baseline in Boulder. This fundraiser has helped the youth earn at least $10,000 each year for the past ten years and continues to be successful with your help.
For each game, we need 30 people to help in the parking lot. Please look at the CU home football game schedule below and mark your calendar NOW for a game or two to join them in this fundraiser.
