Our Youth Group is open to all kids ages 6th grade to 12th grade. Some of our regularly occurring events are described below but check the announcements each week for other upcoming opportunities!
Confirmation is the journey for our 7th and 8th graders of learning and growth in their own faith. Each week they learn about the Old and New Testaments, Martin Luther's Small Catechism, and living a life of faith. We end with a celebration as the confirmation students make promises to God to grow in their faith and to share God's love for a lifetime. We have confirmation classes on Wednesday evenings, September - May.
Several Sundays throughout the year we make and decorate donuts! We decorate them before worship and then offer them to the congregation and community during fellowship time. Free will donations are accepted to support youth programming. Come join the fun!
We are committed to offer our youth the opportunity to travel and participate in giving back to new communities and make new friends. Each summer we travel to a destination and meet amazing people and do great work. During our trips we learn more about our friends, ourselves, and the new people we meet.
In June of 2016, our youth will be traveling to Harvest Farm in Denver, Colorado for a week of service, growth, and fun! This 209-acre farm in Wellington, Colorado provides 72 men the opportunity to achieve self-sufficiency through their New Life Program.
ELCA Youth Gathering
The ELCA Youth Gathering for high school-age youth takes place every three years and is about faith formation, worship, study, fellowship, service and play. It is an opportunity for youth to engage in worship and fellowship with peers from across the United States and the world who share a common commitment and faith in Christ. We will be going to Houston in 2018. Learn more at the ELCA's website!
