This WEeks Programing!
Middle School and High School
In light of the High School Spring Retreat, there will be no foundations or youth group this Sunday (2/17).
Everything resumes as normal February 24!
We take seriously the fact that you are entrusting your teenagers to our care. Our ministry team members have received training and protocols are in place to protect your teenagers. In addition, all of our volunteers are required to undergo a thorough background check.
If you have any questions about the ministry, feel free to ask the Clergy Associate for Student Ministry or any individual on the Parent Advisory Board. Current Board Members include: Jay Easterling, John Sanders, Rennie Manning, Elizabeth DeLoache, Paul Winter, Rhett Warner and Corey Grabar.
We want to help you or your teenager get connected with Trinity Students! To find out more about Trinity Students, please contact Caleb Burr.
The summer offers unique, interrupted space to connect with God and fellow believers in profound ways. Trips and experiences such as these can serve as foundational fence posts in a young person's faith journey.
If you're significantly considering participating in either Camp Booyah, the International Mission Trip, and/or Soul of the City next summer, please RSVP directly to me by December 1. The final deadline for confirmation and payment will be January 15. However, in order to secure a certain amount of spots on each trip, I need to have a general idea of our numbers.
Registration forms, instructions on payment, fundraising tools for the international trip, pre-trip meeting times and logistical details will follow after you RSVP.
When: June 16-21
Location: Camp Watermarks
This is a large, well-established, Anglican camp that draws hundreds of students from around North Carolina and Virginia for a combined camp and missional experience (which counts for service hours) during the summer. We went as a group this past summer, and it was a blast!
Family International Mission Trip
When: July 5-12
Location: Panama with Heart's Cry Children's Ministries
Cost: $1000-1200 (including airfare)**
High school students and their parents have the privilege of serving abandoned and poor children in Central America. Develop friendships, help with site projects, and see how God is moving outside of the United States!
Watch what God is doing there...
Soul of the City
When: July 14-19
Location: Raleigh area
Middle and high school students, in collaboration with Church of the Apostles, spend the day serving local Raleigh non-profits and spend the night at Church of the Apostles, having fun and learning more about God.
*Scholarships are available for these events based on need.
**Part of the process to prepare for this trip is fundraising with family and friends to help cover the costs. All funds raised are tax-deductible.
Register now for the Spring Retreats
It's time to register for our High School and Middle School spring retreats! This year, along with a handful of other churches, we will be joining The Falls Church Anglican's "Breakaway" retreats hosted at Rockbridge Young Life camp. The deadline to register for the high school retreat is February 12 and the deadline for the middle school retreat is February 26.
What are these retreats??
An awesome weekend with hundreds of kids, full of fun (indoor/outdoor games, sweet skits, afternoon free time, energizing speakers) and most importantly, an opportunity for students to grow closer together as a community and with Christ. The purpose of the retreat is two-fold: 1) To encourage students to meet Jesus and give their lives to Him if they have not already done so and 2) For current believers to grow and develop their relationships with Christ and each other. Therefore, all are welcome no matter where they are on their spiritual journey! Click here for a video of last years trip.
