LOFT Youth Ministry
LOFT (Living Our Faith Together) is Trinity’s high school (9th-12th) youth group that meets Sundays at 12 noon to 1:30 pm. This year, we’ll be trying some new things! We’ll have homework help and life skills, guest speakers, great food, and more! Additionally, there’s a monthly special event, see below. The youth grow their faith through Bible study, service, fellowship and leadership. This high school Christian group serve as great role models for the other kids involved in Trinity’s youth ministry.
Hear what our high schoolers shared during their experience at the Senior High Youth Gathering about faith, feeling God’s presence, and sleeping in versus going to church on Sunday in this short video.
Typical LOFT annual events include:
- Epiphany party
- Ski retreat
- Deliver Valentines to the homebound
- Senior High Youth Gathering
- 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 our Director of Youth & Household Ministries, Chad Nelsen.
Upcoming High School Youth Events
Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp High School Retreat: Nov 16-18 Come spend an awesome fall weekend at camp! , just before Thanksgiving break. We’ll meet at Atonement Lutheran at 4pm Friday, and pick up at Atonement at 3:30 pm Sunday. Your cost is $85, and the rest is covered by Trinity.
The theme is “Radically Relevant”: What if we believed that the Church, and we as people of faith, had something radically relevant to offer to the world? What would it look like if we lived our lives believing that?
Rocky Mountain Synod Youth Gathering: Sat-Mon, Jan 19-21 The Rocky Mountain Synod Youth Gathering will be held at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Both middle and high school students are invited. There will be separate, age appropriate tracks for activities all focused around the theme of “Who, Me?”, talking about spiritual gifts and vocation. To register, follow this link. All inclusive cost is $130 per student. Please don’t let cost be the reason you do not attend! Talk to Chad if that is the case.
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.
