Youth Group Meets Sundays 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Youth group will now meet Sundays from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
A simple lunch is included. All youth currently in grades 7-12 are invited to attend.
There will still be special occasions when we move the time,
but we’ll try to keep it to a minimum.
Contact the office for a tentative year-long schedule.
As children grow in age and maturity they have the opportunity to learn and grow in their relationship with God.
This happens both in formal ways, such as Sunday school and mid-week classes,
and in informal ways, such as youth group and service projects
Sunday morning finds youth participating in worship and Sunday school classes, digging deep into God’s Word with studies designed especially for them.
Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 meet separately for Sunday School. High school students (grades 9 through 12) meet together for Sunday school, exploring complex topics important to their lives through the lens of God’s Word.
Students in sixth, seventh & eighth grade may serve as candle lighters (acolytes) for worship services.
For students in seventh and eighth grades, confirmation classes offer an in-depth exploration of the major tenets of the Christian faith and Lutheran understanding of topics such as church creeds, the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. Classes culminate in an opportunity for students to confirm their faith in front of their families and the church.
Youth groups for middle school and senior high school meet separately. The groups are led by church members and parent volunteers.
Each youth group offers the opportunity for spiritual growth (Bible studies, group devotions) in addition to fun activities, special trips, events and worthwhile projects.
There are many opportunities for service. For those youth who want to get involved locally, they may help with anything from assisting nursing home residents with Sunday afternoon worship services to leading a group a children in Vacation Bible School.
Those who want a more intense summer experience may choose to be involved in the Servant Event. A group of teens, college students and adults spend a fun and rewarding time traveling to areas of need within the United States where they repair and refurbish homes of people who lack resources to do so themselves.
