It's Complicated Relationships Church Website Banner

The Crowd –  5:55 – 7 pm Wednesday Nights (Sept-May)

High School youth have a relaxed, welcoming space where they can build relationships and grow in faith.  This is a time to CROWD together and share life and faith with adults who care deeply for them. In a broken and hurting world, this is a space where youth can find hope in the promise of grace and forgiveness from God and then carry that hope into the world. “Be the change you wish to see in the world” (Gandhi).  CROWD times include games, tough questions, prayer, Bible reading, videos, conversations, field trips and more.


The Gathering 10:45 – 11:45 am Sundays once a month

Youth come together for a laid-back Sunday morning youth group time.  With adult leaders the youth will enjoy donut holes and a variety of fun ways to engage their faith in the real world. Conversation, activities, service and fun! Watch church publications for specific events and dates this year!


Youth Choir10:45 – 11:45 am most Sundays

*NEW this year* 6th – 12th graders meet in the choir room.  Youth sing, play instruments, and learn as they prepare to take leadership in worship! Youth Choir & the Gathering alternate weeks so there’s no need to choose between them.  Watch church publications for specific events and dates this year!


High School Summer

Each summer high school youth take a trip to grow in faith and connect with Christian community.  Depending on the year, the trip may be mission, faith-growing, or justice focused.  Past experiences include Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp in Colorado (2016), the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit (2015), Guatemala Mission (2014), and Detroit Mission Experience (2013).
