Youth

Untitled design.png

We believe that the teenage years matter - a lot! What if we could engage these years with a foundation that can fuel the adventure, with a vision for life that can guide the exploration, and with a divine grace that can catch you in failure and equip you through struggle?

At Trinity Park, our Youth Group is designed to create space where students can be met with the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and everlasting life exactly where they are and for exactly who they are. We have a culturally diverse group of students drawing from all over the Morrisville/Cary area, and our goal is to walk alongside them and their families as they figure out their faith, become equipped in the gospel, and prepare to serve Jesus in his world.

Toward this end, we meet weekly to study and discuss God’s Word, offer a before-school Bible Study to stay connected during the week, create fun (and usually ridiculous) events to build relationships and invite others in, and even plot out a couple retreats/camps throughout the year to get away from it all and re-explore what it means to respond to God with our whole lives.

ROOTED in Love [Ephesians] - Spring 2019

This season in Youth Group we’re working through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, considering the character of God’s love, and why it really is the foundation we all need to live boldly and wholeheartedly, holding us through trials and fueling us in opportunities. By seeing what he has done for us in Jesus, and especially the affection that motivates it, we are equipped to live ROOTED in his love.

…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. — Eph. 3:17-19.
