We love students here at Truro! We believe that God can bring transformation into the lives of students, and all that we do in Youth Ministry is created to help students be transformed through the love of God.

We have three priorities for our students in Youth Ministry:

Love God and teach others about Him.

Experience community and love each other.

Serve each other and the world around us.

Student Gatherings

During the school year, students in grades 7th through 12th are invited to our weekly Sunday night Truro Youth Ministry gatherings. We meet at Truro’s Van Dyck House from 5:30 – 7:30 pm for fun, food, fellowship, and spiritual formation.


Confirmation is an opportunity for students who are mature in their faith to make an “adult” decision to follow Jesus and publicly proclaim so. During the confirmation service, the bishop presides and prays individually for each person being confirmed. Please email our clergy at [email protected] to find out more about confirmation preparation and the dates for our 2025 Confirmation service.

We take Jesus and fun seriously! We aim for a fun event once a month outside of or instead of weekly youth group. You can check out our calendar here.
