Central Lutheran Church offers many activities to involve youth in the joy of life in our Lord Jesus Christ:
The Youth Group is a structured opportunity for young Christians to gather for fun, fellowship, learning, and service. Its purpose is to provide support and nurture for the faith and life of our youth. The youth are a vital part of this congregation and of Christ’s Church on earth.
The youth group is open to all youth of the congregation. Different activities are designed for different age groups. We offer events and activities for youth in grade school through high school. We offer family activities, service projects, game and activity nights, and much more.
Throughout the year we focus on events such as our Christmas Program and Youth Led Worship Service. We also hold a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to help support our mission trips.
Summer Mission Trips & National Youth Gatherings
Every summer our high school youth have the opportunity to experience a practical application of their Christian love for others by attending a mission trip or the ELCA National Youth Gathering. Our youth join youth groups from across the nation for community service projects, worship, cultural experiences, and fellowship with one another. Our youth have been to mission trips in South Dakota, Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado, North Carolina, Louisiana, and Mexico. This summer our youth will be going to the Osage Indian Reservation in Oklahoma. We have attended the National Youth Gatherings in Atlanta, San Antonio, New Orleans, and are planning to go to Detroit in 2015 for the next triennial gathering.
