WHAT A WEEKEND! What a remarkable experience of God’s hope and grace. WONDER 2023 was an outpouring of love from our community and God. God can show up despite us. I am just so grateful that God chooses community to do God's best work. Thank YOU for following God's light and sharing it with our students this weekend.

Thank you to our coordinators Louisa Jeffries, Jennifer Mummert, Blair Crabtree and Mary Scott Pearson, as well as all of our parents, adult volunteers, OnSite Productions, the Trinity Community, and our Element Staff for this weekend.

Below is a mix of upcoming events and updates from Discovery Weekend. My team has a well-earned day off Monday, but please feel free to reach out to me.

ELEMENT CAFE - This Tuesday and Thursday, 3:00-5:30 PM.

PARENTS - Do you have space in your schedule to volunteer at Element Cafe? Sign up here!

You do not need to be a "Trinity Member" to participate at Element Student Ministry and its cafe. This year, registration for Element Cafe is completely online and can be done prior to students first arrival to Element Cafe. Please go to to sign up and learn more!!

Please note - students can enter and participate in Element Cafe unregistered up to 3 times. Life is busy, we get it! Just please fill it out by the 3rd visit, because we don't want to ask you to come pick up your student just as much as you don't want to come pick up your student...
