Revitalizing our Youth Ministry
The leaders of Holy Trinity Senior High Youth Ministry are excited to revitalize our programs and support for our students in High School. We look forward to develop activities, retreats, and yes, a schedule of Summer mission trip programs. In the Summer of 2018, the ELCA will host the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston Texas. We are excited to present this possibility and numerous means to fund-raise and engage this important faith development trip. Toward this end, we will have a Youth Pizza Party for rising eighth graders to Seniors on August 23, 2017 at 5:00 to talk about what we all can do together for youth ministry at Holy Trinity. We already have things on the docket, like the retreat in November. So, we have the support, the excitement, and the resources. All we need is you. So, come on out and re-connect with the other students and share the fun of our 2017-18 Youth Ministry.
And the ELCA Youth Gathering Houston, Texas
Can you say Houston? Put some golf balls in your mouth and as low as you can slur it out! Do you know who Houston is named after? Can you name the Houston baseball team, football team, basketball team, and the women’s soccer team? Houston is a grand city; it is a big City. It features Texas barbeque and Yee Haa Rodeos. This is the city of the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. The Gathering is an incredible adventure with fun, new experiences, faith filled events, extravaganzas, and a state of the art professional nightly presentation of popular key note faith filled speakers. It is quite a once in a lifetime experience. We would like to have every youth that is eligible to go be able to go and we will work hard to minimize the expense of the trip to the families and youth. So, come on August 20, 2017 for Pizza and learn all about it! Be “all in!”
Childhood hunger is a very real problem in Loudoun County and Holy Trinity CAN make a difference each week with our food donations.
150 school kits assembled at HTLC on Thursday. Our VBS offering project is complete except for delivery! Kits will be sent to Project Promise through Lutheran World Relief.
During Worship, we will pray and reflect about the Holy Trinity community doing God’s work and the gift of a planning process. A luncheon will follow, and each table will be given three questions to answer. It is that simple. We will continue the process on September 17 and October 1 during Sunday School Hour. Results will be shared through Constant Contact in mid-October. We will invite comments and do a review and vote at council to adapt the visional and missional statements and objectives.
Thank you to all who participated in, and helped with our VBS this year!
See you Next Summer at VBS!
