Youth Ministry


Holy Trinity Lutheran Church offers a variety of programs for youth in grades 5-8.  If you have questions regarding our youth ministries, please contact the church office at 952-758-3513 for additional information.


First Communion

First Communion Instruction is offered to all 5th graders and any one older who would like instruction before receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion.  Students will begin their First Communion Faith Milestone with fall classes and will lead into new Milestones throughout the year.


Youth Group

Youth Group serves youth in grades in grades 5-8.   We meet once a month for fellowship and fun.  Most of these outings will be in the New Prague area and have minimal or no cost.  Some of the activities will be considered a service learning activity and can be used for service hours.  We have a lot of fun activities planned this year like the lock-in, Feed My Starving Children, Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army, Rollerskating, Bowling, and maybe Laser Tag, plus more!

If you are interested in joining us, please get in touch with Melissa Horejsi in the HTLC office at 952-758-3513 or directly at 952-215-4340 or  for more information.




HTLC offers a relational style confirmation program for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders on Wednesday nights in Paul’s Place, from 6:00-6:55pm. Come early and join us for dinner! Meals are served beginning at 5:30pm.
Weekly confirmation sessions alternate between small group and large group experiences. Large Group is taught by trained staff and our Small Group times are mentored by Adult Guides who are parents of confirmands or other caring adults. Parent/student sermon conversations, service opportunities, fellowship/service events and parent/student learning are a part of the HTLC Confirmation experience for all grades. Each of the three years will cover a different theme of instruction surrounding the Old Testament, New Testament and Catechism. We confirm our 9th graders on Reformation Sunday in October after a short but meaningful peer to peer mentorship class is completed.
