7th & 8th Grade Youth Ministry


Confirmation is at the heart of our Middle School youth ministry. Youth spend two years preparing to affirm the promises their parents made for them at their baptism. The relationships that youth form with one another during confirmation often become lasting friendships.

Confirmation has three components:

  • Active participation in worship

  • Sunday morning small group with mentors (10:00-10:50 a.m.)

  • Wednesday evening dinner, large group with clergy and small group (6:00-7:45 p.m.)

We also participate in weekend retreats, lock-ins, social activities and service projects. For more information about confirmation, contact Pastor Heidi Eickstadt, Pastor for Discipleship.

Senior High Youth Ministry


Our Senior High youth ministry is based on relationship and integrating faith into daily life. We want to create a safe space for youth to wrestle with the hard questions of faith and life.

Key components of our Senior High youth ministry include:

  • Music Ministry (link to Youth Choir and Band)

  • Wednesday Night Dinner with Pastor Keseley (6:00-6:45 p.m.)

  • Sunday Morning Waffles and ā€œW(ii)eā€ (10:00-10:50 a.m.)

  • Monthly events such as lock-ins, service projects and much more

This summer, our Senior High youth will be attending the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston.
