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).
We know navigating the various stresses and competing priorities of middle and high school can be hard for pre-teens and teens. Our youth ministry is committed to creating space for students to make friends, have fun, and wrestle with questions about things that matter most.
During the Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) year, we meet on Sunday nights from 4 – 5:30 pm in Truro’s Undercroft (basement) for youth group – all 7th – 12th graders are welcome to join. During the summer of 2022, we are meeting on Wednesday evenings from 6 – 8 pm at various neighborhood pools. See our calendar for more details or email Summer Fariñas. All rising 7th graders through graduating 12th graders (Class of 2022) are welcome to join us!
Mid-week Bible study
Teens meet at 7:00am on Thursday mornings at Main Street Bagel to dig a bit deeper into the Bible together.
Retreats & Events
There are two things we take especially seriously in our youth ministry: Jesus and fun. Retreats, mission trips, and regular events help us stay serious about these things, as we play together and get away together.
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.
