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.
We offer activities for middle and high school students (7th – 12th grade).
Youth Group meets on Sundays from 4 – 6 PM. We start our meeting in the Undercroft (Truro’s fellowship hall, underneath the Sanctuary) for snacks and games and then head up to the “Upper Room” for worship, teaching, and small groups. Students in grades 7th – 12th are welcome to join us!
Confirmation is an opportunity for students who are mature in their faith to make an “adult” decision to follow Jesus and publicly proclaim so. The Confirmation service is a sacred service over which the bishop presides and is usually held once a year. Our next Confirmation Sunday is March 12, 2023. Youth who would like to explore Confirmation can attend our Foundations course starting January 22, 2023 at 9:00 AM. The course runs 4 weeks and we will have a Foundations Pt. 2 specifically for youth starting February 19, 2023 at 9am. Please contact Summer Farinas for more details.
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.

Teens help lead the congregation in worship every week by serving as acolytes on Sunday morning.
We love to meet new students at any event, anytime throughout the year.
Truro welcomes the opportunity to partner with families helping children to take steps of faith toward Jesus and to know and experience the love of God.
