Discipleship Plan

Children and youth learn about faith first at home, second at church. We take the spiritual development of your kids seriously, and we want to provide you with the tools to understand our discipleship pathway for your kids as they grow into each of Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church's programs. Please take a moment to read through our Discipleship Plan. It ranges from birth through high school. Your kids are part of our community and we are dedicated to help them grow spiritually throughout their childhood and into adulthood. This is not a checklist, but simply a road map for each child's spiritual journey.

Discipleship Plan

Welcome to Trietsch Youth

We try to create a welcoming environment so that everyone that comes in our door feels loved and accepted, regardless of background or faith journey. Small groups and large group gatherings take place throughout the week for middle school and high school students to help everyone feel cared for based on preferred worship style. We are always in need of adult volunteers and small group leaders for a variety of roles throughout the year.
