Quick Overview!

This is the one weekend of the year that you don’t want to miss!

Discovery Weekend is a three day retreat for middle school students, led by caring high school and adult leaders at Trinity UMC in Birmingham. It’s the best way to connect with God, friends, and adult leaders, as well as disconnect from the world and grow in your faith.

What happens at Discovery?


Our goal at Trinity UMC is to partner with your family in raising your student up in a loving relationship with Christ. Whether this is your student’s first time at Element or fiftieth time at Element, whether you are members at Trinity or elsewhere or nowhere, all are welcome at Discovery.


Discovery Weekend is a spiritual formation experience for middle school students. What makes it unique is that it is led by high school students, young adults, and parents. The purpose of Discovery Weekend is to help middle school students connect with Christ in new and amazing ways.


The general flow of Discovery rotates through small groups, a worship session, eating and free time. Saturday will also include a missional element. Discovery staff and volunteers develop a minute to minute plan to ensure that every student has a chance to engage in a way that is meaningful to their specific faith journey.


During this weekend retreat, students will discover what it means to live life as a known child of God. With great worship, intimate small groups, and talks from high school students, Discovery is truly something that you do not want to miss!
