"Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him." -- Psalm 127:3 NLT
Faith's Youth ministry is where middle school students, high school students, and adult leaders come together to grow in faith, fellowship, and relationships that matter. We build those relationships by building faithful community together and deepening our relationships with God and with one another. To accomplish this we focus on things like:
God Squad is the youth group for 6th-12th graders. We focus on building relationships in order to create a meaningful space where we can feel comfortable talking about our relationship with God and grow in a fun and inviting environment. Join us for our next event and bring a friend!
For any God Squad questions, please contact Pastor Nick.
Mission: The mission for God SQD is to foster relationships with God and one another while also sharing a Christ-like love with the community.
Theme: Over the summer we focus on our outdoor ministry! (Archery, s'mores/pizza over the campfire, fishing, drive-in movie night, and our summer service event.) We connect each event with a Christian theme.
Confirmation is a 2-year program that starts in 7th grade. The class begins in the Fall each year. The first year is a Biblical study that helps young people engage their faith and better understand the stories of the Bible. They will meet once every other month. The second year of the program is a focus on what Lutheranism is all about. They will meet once a month and have several service components built in. The program will be offered in person as well as online. For more information, contact Pastor Nick.
Youth who love music (or want to learn to) are invited to join one of our choirs. Struck by Faith Choir (6th-12th grades) rehearses Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm.
High School students can also join the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir. Adult choir rehearses Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 pm. Bell Choir rehearses Sundays from 12:15-1:45 pm. See the MUSIC page for more info.
Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. Faith is excited for the opportunity to participate in the 2022 Youth Gathering. For more information, or if you would like to volunteer to be a chaperone, please contact Pastor Nick.
