Christ’s Crew Youth Group

Christ’s Crew is the middle school (6th-8th) youth group at Trinity. The Crew meets for Confirmation classes during the school year. We also have weekly meetups during the Sunday School hour at 9:15am. This time is based on fun interaction versus heavy learning since that’s covered during Confirmation classes. Other fun and purposeful monthly activities throughout the year are planned, plus we 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.

Confirmation Class Schedules

Middle school students (AKA Christ’s Crew) meet during the school year for Confirmation classes. For the 2019-2020 session, we’re varying the schedules to better accommodate family’s busy schedules. Options are on Wednesday evenings from 5:45-7:00pm with a pizza dinner starting at 5:45. Sunday afternoon classes, also with pizza, are from 12:00-3:30pm (8th Graders have different Sunday schedules in April and May). The date schedules are as follows:

Confirmation Schedule 6th Grade Wednesday eve or Sunday afternoon options

Confirmation Schedule 7th Grade Sunday mornings only

Confirmation Schedule 8th Grade Wednesday eve or Sunday afternoon options

Lutheran Confirmation at Trinity is a three year instructional journey. Kids are encouraged to actively participate in learning among their peers and adult leaders during this time. Learn about its purpose and each year’s theme on our Confirmation page.

Upcoming Middle School Youth Events

 

LET’S TALK FOOTBALL (PARKING!)

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.
