Intergenerational Learning

A child's most important teachers of the faith are her parents, grandparents, and the other faithful adults in her life who support her and who show her what it means to follow Jesus in everyday life.  At Holy Trinity, the foundation of our learning and Christian Education for both children and adults is intergenerational.  

Children's Message during the Service

We offer a children's message each Sunday at both of our worship services.  This is a special time for the children worshiping in our congregation to come forward and hear the Bible stories that we will read that day in an age-appropriate way.  The congregation gets to listen in as children learn more about the stories of the Bible, who God is, and how much God loves them.

Youth Roles in the Service

We welcome youth as leaders in our worship services.  There are several ways for youth to become involved in leading worship at Holy Trinity.  Please contact our church office if you would like to learn more about these opportunities to serve:

  • Acolytes
  • Readers
  • Prayers of the People

Confirmation Classes

During 7th and 8th grade, our middle schoolers and their families participate in an intentional time of learning about faith and the church through Confirmation.  Our Confirmation ministry includes participation in our GIFT Gatherings, a monthly class for our 7th and 8th graders, two retreats each year, and a week of Camp-firmation at Camp Calumet.

ELCA Youth Gathering

Every three years, the ELCA holds a gathering for Lutheran youth across the United States to come together for a week of worship, play, service and learning.  This past year, 30,000 Lutheran youth gathered in Detroit, Michigan.  During the day, our youth worked on service projects, played and learned at an interaction center, and hung out with youth from across the US.  In the evenings, all 30,000 youth gathered at Ford Field for singing, dancing and an opportunity to hear speakers share stories about life and faith.  The next Youth Gathering is in Houston, Texas in 2018.
