Mission

We believe that our young people are blessed with so many great gifts and talents and at Immanuel, we hope to help them recognize their full potential given to them by Jesus! These young people are changing and will change the world. We have such an amazing group of 5-12th grade students here at Immanuel!

Our youth programs exist to love and serve this group. We hope that through intentional time together we can equip, empower, and encourage them to fully embrace what it means to be disciples of Jesus.

Our Middle School (5-8th Grade) and High School (9-12th Grade) youth groups meet as indicated below to study, pray, play, laugh, worship, serve, and build relationships with one another. All are welcome! Bring a friend!

“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!” Philippians 4:13

Weekly Youth Group Activities

High School Youth Group (Grades 9th-12th Grade)

Sunday afternoons, twice a month, from 3:15-4:30PM in the High School Youth Room

Youth Group each week is our time of intentional bonding and Spiritual Growth. We are achieving this through interactive Bible studies, team building activities, hang out time, occasional service opportunities, occasional fun trips "off campus", and by praying together. Each year our high school students have the opportunity to lead the Easter SONrise Service!

Middle School Youth Group (5th-8th Grade)

Sunday afternoons, twice a month, from 2:00-3:10PM in the Middle School Youth Room

During Middle School Youth Group we are always doing something active and exciting. We play games, listen to great music, dive into God's Word, hang out, eat some food, occasionally go on a service project trip and go to fun places outside the church! It is a great time to come and be with other awesome Christians that are your age!

Trinity & Confirmation Classes (6th-9th grade)

Wednesday Nights during the school year from 6:45-7:45pm (Pizza supper at 6:30)

In our Trinity class, 6th and 7th grade students walk through the major stories in the Bible. In Confirmation class, 8th and 9th graders explore the Biblical story more deeply, using Luther's Small Catechism as a guide. Servant events, camp experiences and conversations with parents and mentors help students grow deeper in faith together.
