Youth Group – LCGS
Youth – High School
Youth are not “the future of the church,” they are the church now and today! Our high school youth are a busy, fun, energetic group that encourage and support one another. We:
- Meet for weekly gatherings of conversation, connection and community on Sunday nights (August-May)
- Live an active faith by participating in mission trips and service opportunities such as 30 Hour Famine
- Participate in the ELCA’s Triennial National Youth Gathering
- Lead the congregation in worship on 5th Sundays
- Attend a weekly Sunday School class that uses the zany, creative Re:Form curriculum
Youth – Confirmation
7th and 8th graders participate in Confirmation and Sunday School at LCGS. Our confirmation classes are led by our Pastor and include imaginative methods for learning and studying the Apostles’ Creed, 10 Commandments, The Lord’s Prayer, and basics of Lutheran theology.
The confirmation experience includes participation at SHALOM Camp at Mt. Cross in Ben Lomen, CA and occasional activities with our high school youth group. The annual all-youth summer gathering, the Christmas party, and lock-in at Pastor’s home are highlights of our shared adventures.
