Hey! Come along with us. We’re going on a journey.
Youth Group at Trinity Lutheran is a community of young people on a journey of discipleship. Youth group includes grades 7 through 12. We explore faith through weekly discussion and social events. Every year we get pretty excited for our week-long confirmation camp! More below!
Sunday Morning Youth Group
Youth meet on Sunday mornings from 10:45 to 11:45. During this time youth share about their week, discuss the day’s Gospel text and usually play some epic games. This gathering is pretty casual and anyone is welcome to join.
Youth get together once in a while for a social event and fellowship time. Past events have included a winter retreat and a movie night in the theatre room at Trinity. Watch out for events like Lasertag, Bowling, Pizza, and more. The Trinity Dove newsletter and weekly emailer are great ways to find out about upcoming events.
Confirmation classes are lead by Pastor Tanya Ramer and other clergy in our Nith Valley Ministry Area. The class meets throughout the school year at Trinity and neighbouring congregations. Prior to being confirmed, youth are asked to attend for two years and are also invited to attend confirmation camp. Those who have completed confirmation classes are usually confirmed in November of each year.
August confirmation camp is a flagship of the Trinity youth scene. Young people come out to Camp Edgewood to participate as confirmation campers, veteran campers or counselors.
Youth events and youth gatherings are special opportunities for young people of faith to converge en masse and find community with each other. “CLAY” or the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth gathering takes place every other year in a different city in Canada. In 2016, our youth hopped on a bus and headed to CLAY in Charlottetown, PEI. It was epic! We look forward to the next CLAY event in 2018 in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
