Jr. High and Sr. High
Ministries of excellence to equip and inspire youth to live a life led by Jesus Christ.
Youth includes junior high and high school students (7th – 12th). This is a formative time in a young person’s life and we are constantly on the lookout for new and effective ways to connect with and provide meaningful faith formation ministries and activities.
We have a strong emphasis on service including one mission trip every year. Additionally, all our class offerings keep an open eye for discussions, topics and even world events that can tie in to equipping our youth to live a life lead by Jesus Christ.
We offer activities every month broken out by junior high and senior high students to give them the opportunity to have fun and connect with one another outside of church.
Typical activities include haunted hayrack ride, a bonfire, ice skating, and a movie night.
Every year a group from Redeemer goes on a mission trip where we do home repairs. In 2013 we stayed on an Apache Indian Reservation in Mescalero, NM. In 2014 we painted the inside of neglected and nearly forgotten homes in Buffalo, NY. And in 2016 we went north to Red Lake, MN on the Chippewa Indian Reservation.
Seven youth are going on this year’s mission trip (2018) to Valdosta, GA where they will work on houses to help the poverished in that part of the country.
Students help with planning and carry out fundraising to be able to travel for the mission trips. The members of Redeemer Lutheran Church have been very supportive and helpful in making this key faith experience an annual event.
Wednesday nights during the school year 7th and 8th graders get together for confirmation classes from 7 – 8pm. These classes take a deep dive into Lutheran faith practices and its history.
For active confirmation class members. Here is a link to the Summer and start of Fall 2017 Schedule
High School Social
High school students get together at different local coffee shops Sunday morning to discuss from a faith perspective relevant topics and events happening around them both locally and globally. It is a great way to take the teachings of the Bible into the real world for curious teenagers.
Junior High Sunday School
Sunday mornings between services 7th and 8th graders meet to study and learn about leadership as a Christian. This is an interactive class that includes leadership skill assessments and complex discussions around leadership.
