LOFT Youth Ministry

LOFT (Living Our Faith Together) is Trinity’s high school (9th-12th) youth group. The teens 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


Trinity’s youth directs 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 nine years and continues to be successful with your help. This money goes toward the Trinity Youth Community Fund.

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 for a game or two to join in this important fundraiser. Please note that game times are dependent on how well the Buffs play this season. The better they play, the more the games are televised, which dictates a later start time. Game schedules may not be determined until the weekend prior. We’ll update the times as quickly as possible so you can plan to join us.

Parking Dates and Times:

Saturday, Sept 7     10:30am – 2:00pm
Saturday, Sept 14    8:30am – 11:00am
Saturday, Oct 5       11:30am – 3:00pm
FRIDAY, Oct 25      4:00pm – 7:30pm

RTLC Senior High Retreat Friday-Sunday, November 22-24

The theme for the retreat is “Fully Known.” Understanding ourselves helps us understand one another. Join in a weekend of exploring who you are in the safety of a community that trusts we are all created and beloved as God’s children – no exceptions. We will explore the personality tools of the Enneagram and Meyer’s Brigg’s Type Indicator (MBTI). These will be used to deepen our self-awareness and how we can grow deeper in our relationships with God and one another. Trusting God fully knows us and loves us, we get to be courageous and vulnerable as we learn, play, sing, dance and celebrate. More info about speaker and schedule on the website here.
We’ll meet at Atonement Lutheran at 4 pm Friday, and pick up at Atonement at 3:30 pm Sunday. Your cost is $65, and the rest is covered by Trinity. Again, youth accounts from CU Parking are a great way to offset costs.
