are not just the future of the church; they are the
church right now. We create a space where teenagers
can feel loved, have fun, be encouraged through
their faith journey, and learn more about the
Christian faith. This group focuses on bringing
their faith into the world, struggling with the big
questions of faith and growing in their relationship
with Christ. The youth come together around
accountability, respect, love and acceptance.
Our Wednesday Youth Program begins at 3:00 PM in the
Fellowship Hall and Youth Room. Healthy snacks are
provided as youth can study, play games, or just
‘hang out.’ At 4:30, A Bible study is provided. The
youth help set up for a 5:30 congregational meal.
The evening ends with a 6:15 “singspiration” led by
out congregation’s praise team.
Youth have the opportunity to serve the community
and the congregation in many different aspects.
These include but are not limited to: helping at the
food bank in the summer, assembling hygiene packs
for the Salvation Army and Women’s Shelter, cleaning
up the kitchen after a congregational meal, and
helping in the nursery or teaching Sunday School to
the young children of the church.
Another part of the youth program is Confirmation.
Confirmation is a time when youth learn about the
history, teachings, doctrine, and structure of the
Lutheran Church in order to become an adult member
of the church. We use a resource called 'Here We
Stand' by Augsburg Fortress.
