Hey everyone! 

We had a fantastic first SNL of 2023 this past Sunday. Thanks to all our parent and adult leaders who created the night. It was great night of learning how we can each be better neighbors toward one another at Element and in our community at-large.

Coming up this week, all weekly programming is in full swing, along with our new Discovery Weekend Yard Signs, available for pick up. I really want to encourage you to get one of these signs and place it in your yard in the coming weeks as we continue to reach out to our community and invite all students to Discovery Weekend. 

Parents! If you are not already connected in, please be sure to join our Parent By-Grade GroupMe's.

DISCOVERY WEEKEND! March 3-5, 2023.
Full and Partial Scholarships are also available for any student in need. Simply indicate in the payment section.

Discovery Weekend is a Middle School retreat, hosted and held at Trinity United Methodist Church. At Discovery, your relationship with God is the focus. This is why we worship in new and creative ways that help you examine your life and understand the depth of God’s love. It’s a weekend where you are not only encouraged to be YOU, but where you might find out more than you ever knew about who you REALLY are!

It’s a jam-packed weekend full of games, small groups, incredible worship, funny videos, skits, DJs, great eats, messages from High School Seniors, and so much more. Parents, don’t worry though, this is NOT a lock-in. We want your students to get as much rest during Discovery as possible so that they can fully participate and share in the weekend!

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...

Confirmation - Led By Eleanor Christiansen
7th & 8th Grade Class - Led By Jade Carter, Bert Allen and Element Staff
High School Class - Led By Reed Dimmitt, Greg Brockwell and Element Staff

This Sunday night, Element concludes our series "The Art of Neighboring" and this week, we'll hear from our intern Gabi Houston on how NOT to be afraid to make new friends. For the night itself, it's the 2nd Annual Element Game of Games! Students will be broken into teams, competing in both feats of strength and mind for the overall champions title! This is a REACH night, which means we want EVERY student to reach out and invite a friend to church with them! Dinner will be just $3, and is free for first-time students!
