Angel Tree Shopping and Christmas Lights
HOLIDAY YOUTH EVENT – On Saturday, December 11th, middle and high school youth are invited to shop for Angel Tree gifts at 5:00 PM. Supper will be served after shopping. Then, we will load up in the church van and drive around town to view the beautiful Christmas light displays and drink hot cocoa! Bring a friend. Please let Saundra know if you are plan on attending the event (and if you’re bringing a guest).
YOUTH GROUP–Join Pastoral Assistant Saundra for an hour of faith and fun!
Both Middle School & High School will meet every Sunday at 9:45 AM in the Youth Room.
We will not be meeting on Sunday, December 26th or Sunday, January 2nd.
There will not be a progressive supper in December. We will resume again in January!
ECLA Youth Gathering
The ECLA Youth Gathering will be held July 24-28, 2022 in Minneapolis. If you are a 8th-12th grade student (in this current school year), you are eligible to attend.
Attending the ELCA Youth Gathering can be a very powerful faith experience for you; it allows you to worship with 30,000 other ELCA Lutheran teens, participate in a service learning day, and network with other youth in our local South Dakota Synod.
We have a very unique opportunity with the upcoming youth gathering, as this is the closest it will ever get to us! Travel time will be much shorter, and we have the possibility of taking our own church vehicles, allowing us to do and see more on our own (if we want).
We don’t need final commitments of attendance until Labor Day weekend; however, we have several fundraisers planned for the summer and beyond to help defray the costs of the trip. If you are even thinking that you may want to attend, please contact Saundra at the church. Even if you choose not to attend later, you can use the funds you helped raise to attend camp or a service trip, or pass the funds on to a younger sibling later.
We have pamphlets available at the church with more specific information on the financial aspect of attending the Gathering and fundraising. If you are interested in seeing this information, please let Saundra know, and she will mail or email you the brochure.
Are you on the fence about attending? There is a TON of information on the ELCA Youth Gathering page that outlines a schedule and provides information on what to expect!
