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.

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.
