Middle & High School

Our Youth believe in living out their faith via service, learning, and social events, including:

  • Attending Cedar Point
  • Serving dinner to homeless veterans
  • Singing Christmas carols at local nursing homes
  • Attending the Gathering in Lansing
  • Attending the ELCA National Youth Gathering (held in a different city once every three years)
  • Participating in two Youth-led Worship Services
  • Repairing homes at Work Camp
  • and so much more!

Wednesdays are for the Youth!

Confirmation (for 6th-8th graders) and Youth Group (for 9th-12th graders) meet while school is in session on Wenesdays, from 6:15-8:00pm.  The evening is typically broken into three parts:

  1. Electives: to create bonds with mentoring adults, youth choose one of three elective skills.  New options are available every six weeks or so.
  2. Bible Study: to nurture faith.  Middle school explores themes from Luther's Small Catechism and high school puts biblical truths in context with their everyday lives
  3. Games: to grow Christian friendships.  Nothing builds bonds like having fun in Jesus name!

Some nights, we spend the whole evening in a service project, either in the greater community or for our church.  See the Youth Calendar for the most up-to-date details.
