Opportunities for Youth

Teens are welcome to volunteer in all areas of Parish life listed in Volunteering Inside the Parish and Volunteering Outside the Parish. Particular areas of interest include:

Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

All young people at Holy Trinity (and their friends) are welcome to join EYC. There are groups for Tweens (fifth and sixth graders); Jr. EYC (seventh and eighth graders) and Sr. EYC (ninth through 12th graders). These groups meet on Sunday evenings, 5:30 - 7 p.m., in the Youth House for dinner, fellowship, service, and fun. Young people prepare and deliver food to the homeless through the Burrito Bikers ministry. There are occasional retreats, day and overnight trips, and special events. For more information, contact Meredith Scott at 336-272-6149 ext. 237 or .

Glory Ridge Mission Trip

For over 30 years, Holy Trinity’s rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders and college freshmen have gone on a mission trip to the mountains of Madison County, N.C. The group stays for a week of work and worship at Glory Ridge, a non-denominational Christian camp overlooking the French Broad River. Organized work groups take on a project for needy Madison County residents. Past projects have included repairing a roof, building a deck, and constructing a small bridge. Space is limited on this extremely popular trip, so sign up early by contacting Meredith Scott at 336-272-6149 ext. 237 or .

Summer Outreach Week

Summer Outreach Week is a week of outreach projects and fellowship for fifth through eighth graders. Usually held in August, Summer Outreach includes a service project in the morning and a fun activity in the afternoon. Morning outreach projects have included playing games and eating with children at Partnership Village, washing windows at Pathways, and weeding and picking vegetables at the Community Garden. Bowling, swimming, and roller skating have been afternoon activities. Contact Meredith Scott at 336-272-6149 ext. 237 or .
