Youth Education and LYO

The Confirmation Program begins for each student entering 7th grade. There is a 2-year Pre-Confirmation program for 7th/8th grade students which focuses on the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The 9th/10th grade program focuses on Liturgy/Worship and The Lutheran Faith.
Both 7th/8th grade confirmation and 9th/10th meet from 1:30pm-3:00pm at the First Lutheran Church the 1st Wednesday of each month.

Teen Ministry:
Our new Teen Ministry if for 7th-8th grade students. It happens every Sunday from 10:00 – 11:00 am. A group of young adults and senior high students lead the 7th-8th graders in competitive games, team building exercises, Blogs/Vlogs devotionals, as well as relevant conversations about what is going on in the lives of middles-schoolers and how to handle difficult experiences as growing Christians.

The LYO kick off is September 27th with a paintball extravaganza! Students meet at the First Lutheran Church at 6:30 to travel to a location outside of town (they will be fed dinner on the way). After a few rounds of paintball fun, there will be a fitting lesson on the “Armor of Christ”.
After every home football game, the First Lutheran Church holds 5th Quarter where pizza is served to all students / young adults as a Movie is projected up on the side of the building.
