Youth/Young Adult – 7th through 12th Grade
Confirmation Registration Forms and Notes –
Confirmation Learning and Discipleship – 7th through 10th grade youth have confirmation Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights during the school year. There are tough questions that God calls us to enter into. Confirmation is a safe place for youth and their adult guides to gather in groups and work their way into the amazing truths of God’s love for us.
Synod Youth Gatherings – Each Fall and Spring, the Northwestern Minnesota Synod sponsors a Middle and High School Youth Gathering. It’s a weekend of worship, music, dancing, and fun! Your youth director might even do some crazy things at this event.
ELCA National Youth Gatherings – Every three years the ELCA hosts a MASSIVE youth gathering for all ELCA youth across the country. Youth travel and do service together as well as hear awesome speakers and musicians, too. This is for high school students and is one of the sweetest things you get to experience in youth group.
Mission Trip – The summers the Youth do not attend a National Youth Gathering, they travel to different cities through organizations such as Youth Works to do mission trips.
Summer Bible Camps – Just because you’re not a kid doesn’t mean that Bible Camp isn’t for you! Youth are encouraged to head out into the wild each summer for a week of amazing experience at Luther Crest, Pathways, or Voyageurs camps in Minnesota. It’s a blast for all!
The Youth Ministry Team aids in visioning and planning ministry for youth and their families at First Lutheran.
