Get in my TUMY! Trinity United Methodist Youth, that is! In a time when teens are commonly leaving the church, Trinity is committed to offering programming that draws young students to Christ and helps them find their gifts and talents for serving as disciples. New students are always welcome at our Youth Ministry programs. Challenging and educational Sunday School classes meet at 9:30 and 11 AM each Sunday, and our youth gather during the school year each week for Thursday Night Youth. Thursday nights offer teens a time to socialize and connect, share a meal, hear a lesson, and discuss topics and issues important to them. Our TUMY group is diverse, drawing students from Central Dauphin East, Lower Dauphin, Hershey, Palmyra, and Middletown school districts. During the summer, TUMY does not hold Thursday Night Youth, but assists Children’s Ministries with Sunday School programs in addition to meeting for special events. All students in 6-12 grade are welcome to join at any time! TUMY also has a private Facebook group for student activities. Contact Christel Buck, Children & Youth minister, for more information.
