Connect, for 6th and 7th graders, is based on building Christ-centered relationships with peers, group leaders, and the community. Connect is a place where youth can explore their faith by digging deeper, asking tough questions, and applying faith to the world around them. Students will learn about faith through interactive lessons, guest speakers, games, and small service projects that impact the church and community.
Confirmation, for 8th and 9th graders, centers on exploring and practicing the Christian faith together as they prepare to claim a faith of their own. An adult leader and mentors will lead interactive lessons and small group discussions. High-school youth students will participate in service projects, games, guest speakers, mentor & parent nights, and worship leadership opportunities. Confirmation prepares youth for building relationships with each other, the church, and the world around them. In the end, they will be invited to make a public commitment to Christ and become official members of the church. Ninth graders who participate in service projects during the school year can earn a scholarship for a summer mission trip.
For high-school level students, we offer Summer Festival Camp at Gustavus Adolphus. High-school students can also participate in the Summer Festival Camp leadership program. High school youth who participate in service projects during the school year can earn a scholarship for a summer mission trip.
Throughout the year, we offer students in grades 6-12 opportunities to participate in various events and service projects with local service organizations, e.g., Feed My Starving Children, Simpson Shelter, Solid Ground, and local food shelves.
