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
Sun, Sept 9: Bible Sunday To help parents fulfill their baptismal promise to their children to place into their hands the Holy Scriptures and provide for their instruction in the Christian faith, the Education Committee provides Bibles to the parents, who in turn give them to their 3rd and 6th graders each September. The 6th graders receive an NRSV (New Revised Standard Version) Lutheran Study Bible.
Sat, Sept. 15, 2:30pm-6pm: annual CU game with Christ’s Crew! We’ll be parking cars beforehand (which is not required, but highly recommended!) then gather at 2:30 pm in the Basemar parking lot. We’ll walk together to the stadium. Game time is 3pm and should finish no later than 6pm, meaning we should be back at the parking lot for pickup at 6:30 pm at the latest. Tickets are free, but plan to bring cash for food/drinks. Let Chad know if you plan to come!
Fri, Sept. 28th, 8pm: Lock-in Get to know your church friends and have lots of fun at our first lock-in of the year! We’ll do an escape room puzzle together, play games, and have a great time being together. Come park cars beforehand at 4 pm, then come to Trinity at 8pm. Parent pick-up is at 9am on Saturday, Sept 29th.
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.
