Junior Youth

(Grades 6-8)

Our Junior Youth program focuses on opportunities for middle-schoolers to claim their faith as their own.  Kids are invited and encouraged to get involved and make friends. Junior Youth programming includes:

  • Confirmation education
  • Sunday morning Bible study
  • Monthly group outings
  • Bi-annual LCMS retreats
  • Community service opportunities
  • Summer servant trip
  • Summer camp at Heit’s Point


Junior Youth Bible Study

Meets each Sunday at 9:30am in the Board Room on the lower level. This class complements midweek confirmation classes. Each spring, our 8th Grade confirmand students stand before the congregation and before God to confess their faith in Him as their Lord and Savior.
