Confirmation at Trinity
Our goal is to equip and empower students with the ability to navigate life and faith, providing direction for discipleship.
Confirmation at Trinity is for youth in grades 7, 8, & 9. It meets weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:35-7:30 p.m. Youth will learn in both large and small group settings. There is a fee of $35 per student.
At Trinity, the rite of Affirmation of Baptism is celebrated after completing the Confirmation program. In the spring of 2023, and 8th or 9th grader desiring to be confirmed will meet an additional Wednesday, May 3, at 6:35 p.m. to share their Faith Project. The rite of Affirmation of Baptism will be celebrated during worship on Sunday, May 7.

What is Affirmation of Baptism?
When we talk about faith, baptism is where we begin as Lutherans. We acknowledge God’s love, God’s presence, and God’s promise for our lives. In baptism, God claims us and promises to walk with us in faith. Baptism is a lifelong event, and so when we affirm our baptism, we reaffirm the promises made for us by our parents and sponsors at baptism. Youth are often baptized when they are young, but not all. If your youth has not yet been baptized, please contact Ashley Olson and/or Pastor Tom Westcott.

High School Senior Recognition: May 21, 2023 at 9:45 a.m.
High School Youth Group
NEW! Trinity offers weekly Youth Group for high school students. This group is meant to be a safe place for youth to build relationships, learn, and have fun, all while growing in their relationship with God. Youth of all races, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, economic conditions, and abilities are welcome. We love friends and new faces, so please join us! Youth Group meets weekly in the Youth Room on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
High School Trip
Each summer, Trinity youth embark on a trip that will influence their faith lives in extraordinary ways. Trips provide our youth with experiences that will deepen their faith, learn how they can develop a closer relationship with God, develop and nurture relationships with adults and peers, and realize that loving God and believing in God are fun and exciting!
Trips occur on a 3-year rotation: ELCA Youth Gathering, Adventure, Mission
It is the hope of Trinity Lutheran Church that all students, regardless of financial ability, have the opportunity to participate in any event that will nurture their spiritual growth in Christ. To learn more about scholarships, please contact Ashley Olson.
Each student has the option of opening a student account. As the student participates in Trinity sponsored fundraisers, the money they raise will be deposited into this account. They are welcome to use this money for any ELCA or Trinity sponsored event of their choice. If any money is left in a student account, upon the student’s graduation from High School, the funds will be transferred to the Trinity Scholarship Account, unless it is specified to a younger sibling.
Email Ashley Olson, Youth Ministry Director for more information on any of Trinity’s Youth Ministry Programs.
All programs, camps, and events are open to the community.
