A lot happens in one’s 20s and 30s – college, post-graduate studies, first jobs, dating, marriage, and children. At Trinity, we want you to know that, despite the chaos of these times, the church will be there as a community of those who “bear one another’s burdens.” (Galatians 6:2).
Our Young Adult Ministry seeks to empower persons between the ages of 22 and 35 to “Grow” as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. We welcome these persons regardless of life stage to come and experience God’s grace in our prayerful, open, and worshiping community.
The heart of Young Adult Ministry is our Core Communities. These groups seek to study, pray, fellowship, and serve together. We recommend that you try each group in which you are interested at least twice in order to find out where God is calling you to be involved. See the information below to find out how you can get plugged into a Core Community at Trinity.
