CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Our children and youth ministries provide opportunities for friendships through all ages and stages from infants to college students.
 
College OIKOS
Lead by parent volunteers, college-aged students meet weekly in an OIKOS group of their very own aimed at friendship, fellowship, and Bible study. Click here to sign up.
 
Confirmation Confirmation classes run from September to May for 7th and 8th graders. It is a two year program that reviews stories of the Old and New Testament along with learning the Catechism of our Lutheran Faith. Confirmation classes are held Wednesdays at 5:30 pm in classroom N-3. For more information contact Pastor Josh.
 
Odyssey
Children ages 3-12 are invited to take a journey through time Sunday mornings in our Faith’s Odyssey program. Children begin in the Sanctuary to enjoy the first few songs of our Modern Worship service, then head into rotation through Mary’s house, where they discuss the lesson of the day, the skit room, where they get to participate in a reenactment of the story, and through the market place where they have snacks and do a variety of crafts and activities relating to the lesson. We have built a 3 year rotation with the goal that the children will have heard and experienced the major Bible stories twice by the time they reach Junior High

Nursery
Our nursery, located right off our Narthex, is available for children ages 0-4 on Sunday mornings. Nursery care is provided by College Sitters and youth group volunteers.
 
Youth Group
For middle and high school-aged students, our Youth Group meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 in Classroom N-3 for a Bible study. Activities and service opportunities are planned throughout the year to further foster friendships among our youth. Each summer, our youth go on a house boat adventure at Lake Shasta, and in 2019, we’ll be attending the LCMS National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis.
 
Youth Ensemble
Part of our Worship Arts ministry, the Youth Ensemble includes children ages 4 through high school who perform at select special services throughout the year dancing, singing, and acting. To sign up, click here.
