Learning to follow Jesus
In today’s world, students experience a barrage of information and culture, and it’s easy to follow the way the world tells them to live. But the way the world says to approach life is often in direct opposition to the way Jesus teaches us to live. So within our Student Ministries at Trinity we cultivate an environment where following Jesus is the true approach to life. Students learn to connect with Jesus, follow Him better, and then are encouraged to reflect Jesus to others.
Wednesday nights are where our students learn how to follow Jesus through Gospel-centered teaching & worship and through the relationships they build with each other.
Jr. High (6-8th grade) and Sr. High (9-12th grade) meet together for the summer from 6:30-8 PM.
Students are placed in a small group by grade and gender. These groups form the base for students to understand scripture together, wrestle together with how the Holy Spirit is guiding them to live, and form friendships to help each other follow Jesus together.
Small groups meet together with their leaders on Wednesdays nights. Their leader will also connect with them throughout the year to foster transparent and authentic relationships to continue to grow as followers of Jesus.
One way we can grow as disciples is by learning to lay our lives down and serve other people. In Matthew 20:28, Jesus said “…the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
On Sunday mornings this summer (not meeting July 2) grades 6-12 meet together for facilitated discussion groups led by 10th – 12th grade students based on Francis Chan’s video series, “Doctrine and Surrender.” Students are encouraged to serve at least 3 Sundays this summer in one of these ministries here at Trinity – Refresh Café, Sound Tech, Trinity Kids, Custodial, Usher or Greeter.
