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.
