Discipleship MInistries


The Arnagard Pastor, Garret Gudmusen, leads confirmation and youth group for both the Watford City area Lutheran Parish, Keen, and the Arnegard Parish. During the school year, the youth meet for confirmation on Wednesday evenings. In the summer time, Pastor Garrett coordinates youth with Church Camps and LYO (Lutheran Youth Organization). If you have a youth looking for a place to pug in, call Pastor Garrett at the Arnagard Church at (701) 444-3244

Children’s Program

During the School year, Pastor Alyssa Quade leads the Children’s Program. The country Churches and the First Lutheran Church all have worship at 10am. In town, the kids get to participate in memory verse teams, the Lord’s Prayer, music, videos, Bible stories, and related activities. Every 4th Sunday the kids have “Game Day” where they play Bible related games to help them get better acquainted with God’s word. Every 3rd Sunday, the kids lead worship at the 11am Family Service.

Around Christmas and Easter, the kids practice and put on a program for the parents.

In the Summer time there are many Bible Camp opportunities for kids in addition to our June 14th-16th VBS program. At VBS, councilors from the UMM Camp come and lead the kids in a three day program of fun and adventure!

Special Services

Through Advent and Lent there are Wednesday evening meals and worship services. These services help prepare the Church family to prepare for the coming celebration – to simplify one’s life and come back to the God’s purpose for us, to have a meaningful relationship with Him.

Woman’s Bible Study

The Last Wednesday of every month, Pastor Alyssa lead’s a Woman’s Bible Study / Discipleship group.

Men’s Group

One Wednesday a month, Pastors Mark and Rob, put on a Men’s Wednesday discipleship group.
