Youth

youth_bannerAt First Evangelical Lutheran Church, we are working hard to make certain that our youth (from baptism to 18 years old) know that they are a vital part of the Body of Christ and valued members of our congregation.

Key Components to our Youth Program

Encouraging weekly participation in Worship
Every member is encouraged to come to praise God and receive the gift of forgiveness each Sunday.  Youth are active in worship leadership as acolytes, lectors, and sound technicians.

Living out our Faith
Our response to God’s grace and are call as Christians in our baptisms compels us to reach out and service God.  Our youth committee provides opportunities for our young members to share Christ’s love in service to our community. Contact Pastor Jerry at jnuernberger@felchurch.org for more information.

 

Mountain Top Experiences
We provide ways for our youth to grow in faith through retreats, youth trips, Vacation Bible School, and weeks at Camp Lutherlyn. For more information contact the office at office@felchurch.org.

 

Faith at Home: We strive to empower the parents of our children to share their faith at home so that every child is growing in faith through life in the church and their daily lives as well.   One key component of this ministry is our church library which offers materials for all ages!  Our library located on the second floor of the education building.  Our church librarian is Bonnie Rich who can be reached through the church office at office@felchurch.org.  

 

 

Relationship Building 
For youth to feel that they are truly a part of the congregation, they need to make meaningful connections with their brothers and sisters in faith.  Both pastors work to build personal relationships with our young members.  This year our council has taken on a project to connect the generations which will help more adults personally know our youth.  Watch upcoming newsletters for future events.  Next intergenerational event will be annual Road Clean up on May 7, 2016.
