Mission StatementTYG is an all inclusive, Faith based youth group that believes we should all strive to live a life that inspires others. Teenagers are mentored to lead by example. We aim to cultivate character, values and relationships by giving back through interaction and community service. We provide a safe haven, support, comfort and friendship through the teenage years and beyond. We consider ourselves an unconditional, loving and accepting family. We have fun and create lasting friendships.
"The only way to have a friend is to be a friend" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
About UsTrinity Youth Group is open to 6th through 12th grade youth. You do not have to be a member of the church to attend TYG. We meet every Wednesday evening throughout the school year from 6:30pm to 8pm in McAurthur Hall at Trinity Church, Solebury. Every 3rd Sunday Trinity Church has a Youth Eucharist at 9:30am. This is a youth-driven service with high energy; TYG members take turns giving the sermon. Youth and congregation members provide the music on folk instruments and occasionally multicultural instruments.
