Confirmation (Regional Confirmation Class)
For mature 8th-12th grade students. Several Portland area churches join together for youth confirmation classes using the Confirm Not Conform curriculum. Half of the classes include the entire group, and half are individual church groups. Classes meet twice monthly on Tuesday evenings with occasional weekend activities. Click HERE for the schedule.
Hearts and Hands
Middle School-High School Sunday Formation
We have two youth formation opportunities on Sunday-Hearts and Hands. We invite Middle and High schoolers to join us immediately following communion from the 10:00 a.m. service for refreshments. After refreshments, there will be two options for students to engage with the scripture of the day or questions that arise from the worship service, itself. The "Hands" group will take an active approach with hands-on activities, while the other "Hearts" group will take time to reflect in a more contemplative way. The Hands group will meet in the St. Francis room. The Hearts group will meet in the St. Catherine room. We will finish at 11:45 a.m.
Youth in 6th grade and older are invited to serve as acolytes for Trinity’s worship services. Acolytes serve about once a month at the 10:00 a.m. service. Trainings occur throughout the year, and experienced acolytes take on additional responsibilities. Attendance is encouraged at two Acolyte Days, Sunday December 6, 2015 and Sunday, February 28, 2016, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. These days are a chance for more training as well as some fun with fellow acolytes.
Youth of any age are encouraged to participate in any of Trinity’s worship guilds: lectors, lay eucharistic ministers, altar guild, ushers, greeters, and flower guild. Adult mentors will be assigned to help youth hone their skills. Participation can be at any of Trinity’s services, including church at the commons.
Join one of our fantastic youth choirs! See Children's Music for more information.
