Jr. High Ministry

(7th & 8th Grade Confirmation) Our confirmation ministry is a 2-year instruction of Lutheran beliefs of the faith. When a baby is baptized, parents promise to raise that child in a church community. When that child becomes older, he / she begins this term of instruction.
 

Teens are taught as a large group and then broken up into small groups with adult faith mentors as leaders. These adults make a 2-year commitment to see their small group through this time of instruction, thereby, creating a meaningful and lasting relationship with each teenager. At the end of the 2-years, the teen takes responsibility for his/her own faith journey and relationship with God through a ceremony called “Affirmation of Baptism.”

Our 7th & 8th grade junior high ministry is a mix of learning, serving, and fellowship events.

Our regular weekly ministry happens during the school year on Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, as well as during Sunday School. In addition to our weekly ministry, other events such as retreats and summer mission trips are offered.

Senior High Ministry

Our 9 – 12th grade ministry is also based on Bible studies, servant, and fellowship events. During the school year, we offer opportunities weekly – Sunday morning Sunday School at 9:50am, and Sunday night ministry, from 6:30 – 8 pm. The activity changes week to week as our adult faith mentors provide meaningful opportunities to build relationships with our teens. Friends are always welcome to join us upstairs in the Senior High Room, Rm 25

In addition to Sunday nights, our Senior Higher’s participate in an annual mission trip in the summer, weekend retreats at our regional camp, and other events to promote Christian growth and learning. We are already making plans for the 2015 ELCA Gathering being held in Detroit!

Post-High School

is a program to maintain contact and connection with our post high school young adults, communicating primarily by texting and seasoned with opportunities to share a cup of Starbucks coffee. An occasional care package is sent to college students and military personnel. If you have a post high school young adult, please provide us with their phone number and we will add them to our list.

  • Kudos to Protestant high schools! Recent research, summarized in Christianity Today, found that “graduates of Protestant high schools out-volunteer peers from Catholic, secular, public, and home schools—all by significant margins” and that “the type of high school people attend influences them more than any other factor—including religion, socioeconomic status, or family type.” The academically-minded can read the full research article from The Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion which studied the volunteer involvement of young adults.
