Middle School Youth Ministry
6th - 8th Grade

Confirmation (6th – 8th grade), Mentorship (9th grade)
As your faith begins to grow and take root, confirmation becomes a place in your life where you begin to make your relationship with God your own. You will have the opportunity to discover God in your life by learning more about the teachings of Christ and our Lutheran traditions. As you learn how God’s Word relates to your life including through your interaction with parents, friendships and school. Each Wednesday during the school year you’ll worship together and then meet in small groups for fellowship, fun and study with an adult guide.

Confirmation meets on Wednesday nights during the school year. Our Wednesday night program combines large group worship and teaching with small group conversations.
6:00-6:30 pm: Worship together in small groups within the larger congregation.
6:30-7:30 pm: Education hour with large group teaching time led by pastors and small group conversation time led by a variety of adults.

Joyful Voices (1st – 12th grade)
All God's creatures have a place in the choir - that means you! If you are in 6th-12th grade, your place is in the Joyful Voices Choir. No previous experience is necessary. We meet from 4:45-5:45 on Wednesdays. We provide special music for the 10:15 services usually twice a month. We also have been helping with leading the singing for Wednesday worship. Don't miss out on being a part of this important ministry opportunity! For more information, check out music ministry.

Fun and fellowship
Throughout the year, fun events are planned so you have the opportunity to develop relationships with those outside your small group. Past events include: bonfires, snow tubing, lock-ins, movie nights, pajama parties, etc. Most of these events are free of charge and you are encouraged to invite friends.
