Bible Study for Confirmed 8-12th Graders

January 2017

Confirmed 8th grade-12 Grade students

New 9-week Youth Bible Study starts Sunday, January 8th. We will walk through the book of Ephesians. This series is both discussion and video presentation. I look forward to seeing our TYM kids!

Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we’ve been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.

Pastor and author J.D. Greear walks through the powerful words of Paul. In 9 sessions, J.D. digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the gospel. If the people of your city, of your school, of your family are going to hear the gospel, it’s going to be from your mouth. Encounter Ephesians, and get swept up into the story of Jesus.

Connections for College Students

UCF Campus Ministry

Live UCF is a Campus Ministry anyone can connect to.  We want you to come as you are and leave inspired to be great on campus. So often church becomes just a retreat from every day life with what seems like little connection to the rest of the week.  LiveUCF brings it all together.  Join us in worship, Bible study, and gatherings for retreat time with the Lord that prepares you for your every day life. Join us, connect, and be a part of the LIVE movement at UCF.

Volunteer Youth Ministry Team

Volunteers on the Youth Ministry Team of Trinity Downtown contribute generously of their time and talent to give resources, support and encouragement to Trinity’s youth (Middle school through College) as they grow in faith;  and, with the entire membership, support the outreach of the Gospel of Jesus to the people of the congregation, this community, and to the world. This Team shares its passion for youth ministry through its support and development of the youth ministry of Trinity Downtown and fills those volunteer roles which minister to the younger people of Trinity’s family.

If you have a passion for youth ministry, either behind the scenes or direct ministry work with the youth of Trinity, please contact our Youth Ministry Team facilitator, Amy Fischer at AWTLM@aol.com.  Amy will connect you with others on the Youth Ministry Team who share your passion and will plug you in where you are able to fill a need and get connected with others serving at Trinity Downtown.
