YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY
Brian Penn, Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry plans and implements youth and young adult ministry in the congregation.
Middle School youth meet weekly during the school year for fellowship and activities on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm.
High School youth meet weekly during the school year for fellowship and activities on Sunday evenings at 6:30 pm.
Special events and service opportunities are also scheduled and publicized through the newsletter, bulletin, and social media.
Bible Camp, Retreats, and Youth Gatherings are also a part of youth programming. Grace Lutheran youth can register for camp as part of a group or attend individually.
Elementary youth attend either Shetek or NeSoDak Bible Camp. Middle School youth attend Outlaw Ranch. High School youth participate in a variety of camp programs- either adventure or service based.
National Youth Gatherings Every 3 years the ELCA holds a national youth gathering. Grace Lutheran youth attend. Various fundraisers are held to cover the costs of attending the Gathering. The next gathering will be in Houston, TX in 2018.
Confirmation for Middle School and 9th/10th graders covers Luther’s Small Catechism and other faith topics and meets at various times. If you have a confirmation aged students, talk to Pastor Siri for details.
A Vacation Bible School/Day Camp week is held each summer for children aged 3 through 5th grade. Staff from one of our Bible camps comes to help with the program.
