Students (5th-12th)



Sunday Morning Opportunities

Parents are encouraged to join our middle school students on Sunday morning for class.  They will learn alongside their student and then spend time in conversation with other parents discussing how they can best raise up their students in the faith.


[5th - 6th Grade] Bible Study

Sunday Mornings | 9:30-10:30am | SC 194

Students will walk through various Bible stories using hands on activities, games, and discussion questions.  All of the lessons seek to apply God's Word to our every day life!


[7th - 8th Grade] Confirmation

Sunday Mornings | 9:30-10:30am | SC 292 and 296

Students in Confirmation study key elements of God's Word and the Lutheran Faith. They study two semesters of the Bible, followed by a semester of Catechism study, and a life application section. 7th grade is currently studying the Old Testament and 8th grade is studying the Small Catechism. To sign your student up for Confirmation email Ross.


[High School] Bible Study

Sunday Mornings | 9:30-10:30am | Student Center Chat Room

Students focus on applying God's Word to their daily lives. Students will be challenged to look at scripture in new ways and discuss with other high school students what God's Word means to them.  


Student Sunday Nights


Every Sunday | 5-7pm | Student Center

Students in 7th-12th grade are invited to join us each Sunday for games, Bible study, and dinner! It is a great time to meet up with friends and make some new ones too while growing in your faith! Middle school and high school groups meet at the same time but not necessarily together. Each night is different so be sure to join us!

We will not be meeting on November 19th. Enjoy Thanksgiving break and sign up to join us at our Thanksgiving Dinner on the 26th!
