Grades 8th through 12th
Teens will take part in two programs this year. Confirm Not Conform is an interactive exploration of faith in preparation for Confirmation to take place on Saturday, January 15, 2010. The second half of the school year teens will continue to grow in faith as part of the program called J2A or Journey to Adulthood. This program has an open forum for discussions on many topics such as the image of God, prayer, our beliefs, seeing Christ in the world, issues and conflicts in society, participation in service to ‘others’ outside our comfort zone, peer group challenges, and much more.
2011-12 School Year

Here at Trinity, we believe that there is one true teacher, the Holy Spirit.
We feel that our purpose in our Christian Education Programs is simply to prepare an environment through which all of us might come to open our hearts to the Spirit and His Teachings. Our Baptismal Covenant is our call to proclaim and celebrate the presence of God.
We are all travelers on lifelong journey of spiritual formation from the youngest to the oldest. Believing that the most important element of Christian Education is learning to know Christ.
So, we study and learn about God through thoughtful study of Scripture, and Christ’s teachings and the teachings of the Episcopal faith. We engage in lively discussion, exploration of ways to interweave Christian thought into daily action, and tackling the challenges along the road in our Spiritual Journey.
That journey begins in the early years!!
