High School Youth Ministries

Senior youth activities are for students in grades 9-12. Youth In the Name of Christ (INC) is a consistent weekly opportunity for high school students to gather on Sundays at 6 pm in the youth room. A typical gathering incorporates three things: Bible study, fellowship, and small groups. This ministry builds peer relationships and motivates students to develop their life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.

Students also participate in retreats, servant events, and mission trips. 

  • Fall - Back to School (September)
  • Winter - Christmas Tree Sales Sign-up (November)
  • Spring - Family Work Day (April)
  • Late Spring - Worship on the Beach (May)
  • Summer - Summer Nights fun and Mission Trip to Alabama!

Our goal is for students to focus on their relationship with Christ, deepen their Christian friendships and put feet to their faith. Our desire is to acknowledge, amplify and celebrate students’ God-given identity as they grow to become responsible college students and adults.

In the summer of 2016, youth will participate in the LC-MS National Youth Gathering.  Parent Information and Registration Forms are available at the link below:

Through the Youth INC program, students will become:
  • Confident in sharing their faith stories in small groups;
  • Servant-Leaders by developing skills during mission trips and volunteer opportunities;
  • Supportive of one another in “the walk” by building and maintaining Christ-centered friendships;
  • Participants in small group Bible studies with conversations that are real, relevant and Christ-focused.
