MS and HS Bible Study

 A Sunday morning Bible Study for youth in grades 6-12 at 9:30 a.m. in the Youth Room located in the church basement. Food and refreshments will be served. We look forward to Trinity youth and their friends joining us each week as we gain a greater understanding about God’s plan for us through our exploration of the Bible. Topics for Bible study will vary throughout the year. 


Rather than relying printed materials for our lessons we will instead be using interactive video programs specifically designed for today’s youth.

We will begin this year with a three week video series titled, an Assistant Professor of Education at Concordia University, Wisconsin. This dynamic series will help answer questions such as: Does science confirm the Bible? Did dinosaurs and humans live together? and What about the missing link?

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.
