Trinity has a variety of opportunities for youth of all ages.
Sondra, our High School Youth Director, works with our Youth Ministry Team to provide our older youth with opportunities to learn, have fun, and to serve.
Pastor Bobbie and the Vicar work with the middle school aged youth in Confirmation Class (6th-8th grade). They study scripture, explore their faith AND have fun during confirmation class and retreats.
We have a Sunday School Program at 10am for all ages, September thru May.
During the school year, our youth groups meet regularly and engage in service projects
and fun activities.
High School Youth are gathering every weekend this year – for Sunday School and as Youth Group!
Twice a month Middle School Youth will join in the fellowship, fun and learning how to build and enjoy relationships!
Fundraisers are being planned to support special activities and the 2013 Mission Trip the youth will take to Charleston, SC.
Events & Activities of 2012-13:
Many high school youth participated in the 30-Hour Famine to raise money and awareness of hunger and the need for clean water in our community and around the world.
They performed two service projects during the 30-hour experience without food .....
and slept outside the way too many individuals and families must.
Thank you from the youth and adults you sent to the 2012 National Youth Gathering in New Orleans -- July 16th-22nd!

More than 33,000 youth and 5,000 adults took part in the 2012 ELCA National Youth Gathering in New Orleans. All who participated returned to their respective communities prepared to “Love Like Jesus” as citizens with the saints.
The TLC youth and adults experienced: practicing Justice, Peacemaking and Discipleship; and celebrated daily with thousands at worship. From the enormous crowds in “Lutherdome” each evening and the Sunday morning worship, to the one-on-one service projects in NOLA, all who gathered were filled with joy and more confidence in their commitments to “Make a Difference” in our community and world.

Our youth are also dedicated to finding ways to serve God in our Bradenton community. They take part in a variety of service projects throughout the year - collecting needed items for One Stop Center, and participating in walks to bring awareness to hunger, juvenile diabetes and Alzheimer's to name a few.
In February 2013 they fasted for 30 hours to raise money and awareness for hungry people in our community and around the world.
Youth are important to us. We invite all young people to join in the fun!
