It’s never been easy being a youth! It’s a time in each of our lives that is full of so much promise, opportunity, and excitement; yet also full of questions, and many important decisions that often impact the direction of the rest of our lives.
Trinity’s Youth leaders have been creating new ways to stay connected. We encourage our youth to join Remind 101 to receive text updates from us. Simply text 81010 and reply @tpcyouth18.
The purpose of the Youth Ministry at Trinity Presbyterian Church of McKinney, Texas is to help youth to navigate this important transitional time in their lives by helping to answer these questions and empowering them to make sound decisions that glorify Christ. It serves students in grades 6 –12. We encourage you to explore these pages and to join us as we gather together in fun and fellowship. The Youth Ministry is divided into two groups based on grade level.

We seek to empower youth in mission, to learn Presbyterian theology, and to explore their faith so they may become lifelong, faithful Christians. This is done in fellowship with their peers, in class and out of class, on Sundays and throughout the week. Activities include:
- Opportunities for each individual to participate in mission work, including a week long mission trip before graduating high school
- Wednesday night and Sunday morning programs with age specific activities and topics
- Engaging teachings of the Old and New Testaments, Presbyterian history and theology, and studies of different denominations and religions
In Confirmation classes, youth explore what it means to be a member of TPC and the Presbyterian Church (USA), making a commitment to Christ and His church. The important Confirmation process is a comprehensive program for youth in 7th grade and older, lasting 9 months. On Pentecost Sunday, confirmands are welcomed as full members of the church. Class members are expected to attend worship at TPC and complete at home activities.
Retreats and Summer
The Youth Ministry participates in various retreats throughout the year and age-specific summer activities. For detailed information on our Retreats and Summer Camps and programs go to the Junior High and Senior High pages.
The Junior High and Senior High youth both have at least one opportunity during their school career to do a mission trip. Currently the Junior High goes on a mission trip every other year while the Senior High youth goes on annual mission trips. Mission work takes us worldwide; however, it need not take us away from local needs. For more information visit our Youth Missions Page.
