Our youth of ages 7th -12th grade are active in various activities throughout the year. You will most often find them raising money for outreach and other youth service projects. In addition to fundraising, you will also catch them leading worship on Sunday, attending Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF) meetings, or at the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) Youth Gathering. We are currently raising money and planning for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX. In 2012 and 2015 we had almost 20 youth attend the gatherings in New Orleans and Detroit respectively.
The youth’s fundraising includes periodic flea markets, car washes, dog washes, bake sales, spaghetti dinners and starve-a-thons. But most of us look forward to the annual homemade pumpkin roll sale at Thanksgiving, cookie sale at Christmas and Callie’s Candy at Easter time!
When not fundraising or busy with church activities – our youth enjoying ‘chilling’ by white water rafting, riding the rides at Dorney Park and local swim parties at Bear Creek Lake.
