Learning Ministries Day
Each year, all of our Christian Education staff, any high school youth or adult member in good standing of Trinity are invited to attend this annual synod wide event, usually held in late winter or early spring. Workshops are led by professional ministry folks from all over our synod territory. This is a fun filled day of learning new and exciting things going on around the synod. A different guest speaker each year and lunch is also provided along with the workshops. To learn more information about this day and how to obtain an application, please contact the church office at (610) 377-4303 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many activities are available for youth in 5th-12th grades, including snow tubing, Bear Creek Camp events, Dorney Park passes, Hershey Park passes, Cabin Fever Day, Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF of NE PA Synod) retreats, and the triennial ELCA Youth Gatherings. In September 2017, we welcomed Vicar Rich Bergen, an intern from the United Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia, who will lead our youth as part of his internship responsibilities.
