We glorify God through the fellowship and discipleship of students, ministering to others by loving and serving the community.
We welcome your pre-teen or teen in Trinity’s Youth Group. Youth Group is for those young people 6th thru 12th grade. We believe that through God’s abundant Love and Grace, we will help build your child’s foundation to know God through fellowship, scripture, music, and service.
Our program runs parallel to the school year with time off at summer. We meet every 1st, 2nd & 3rd Sunday of every month from 5:00 – 6:30 for regular activities. Our group works for the Torres Shelter Service on the 4th Saturday of every month. The Torres Shelter preparation and service requires drop off at church at 4:00 and pick-up at 7:30 on Saturday.

Love Your Neighbor Luncheon
On April 30, after the 10:30 worship service, the Trinity youth group invites you to a very special luncheon. All proceeds will be donated to a recent immigrant family who are in need of assistance.
Come to Hadley Hall for a delicious lunch and at the same time make a difference in the lives of one of our neighbors.
Greetings TUMC Youth parents and Church Family,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Thank you for the support and thank you for having such GREAT KIDS!
The MLK, Jr. event went without a hitch. The MLK, Jr. Unity Group, of which I am a TUMC Church and Society representative, had been planning this event for months. We made wonderful ideas and suggestions come to fruition Sunday evening.
There were 10 teens from our Youth Group that participated. The evening began with a rally in Hadley Hall rather than at Downtown Plaza due to the rain. We then moved into the sanctuary for the main program – the church was packed. The youth group sat and enjoyed most of the program along with hundreds of observers, but when it was time to work, they were ready! Not only did our youth make wonderful posters to adorn Hadley Hall but they eagerly lined up, with freshly washed hands or gloves to serve hundreds of people a yummy dinner donated by many local restaurants, volunteers and you. The teens were gracious and seemed to be having a great time!
A special thank you to Kathy and Steve Eckart for enthusiastically assisting with the many electronic sound demands and to Chris Hull and Meghan C. Giannini for taking over the dish washing task(we used real plates, glasses and silverware)! The kitchen had many helpers and the atmosphere was of hope, joy and unity.
Finally, I would like to mention that prior to this hopeful and heart-warming event, the call to worship at the 10:30 service set the tone for the entire evening:
I refuse to believe that we are unable to influence the events which surround us. I refuse to believe that we are so bound to racism and war, that peace, brotherhood and sisterhood are not possible. I believe there is an urgent need for people to overcome oppression and violence, without resorting to violence and oppression. I believe that we need to discover a way to live together in peace, a way which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of this way is love. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe that right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant. I believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered people have torn down, other-centered people can build up. By the goodness of God at work within people, I believe that brokenness can be healed. “And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together, and everyone will sit under their own vine and fig tree, and none shall be afraid.”
There is still much work to be done and we are trying to do our part. I am sure proud of our kids and I am proud of our church.
God bless you all.

Who stole the pot of gold at the end of the
rainbow and what does that have to do with Christmas?
If you want to find out, you must come to the children and youth Christmas program on Sunday, December 14. The youth will
perform Georgie Summers’ play Patrick and the Leprechaun, which will include the nativity story by the Sunday School children. There
will be lots of music and singing and after the play there will be a potluck supper.
The play will start at 5:00 p.m. in Hadley Hall. Come and bring your friends and family and let them see what a great Christian education program we have at Trinity.
