The Crowd –  6:00 – 7:30pm Wednesday Nights (Sept-May) Come join us on Wednesday evenings from 6-7 pm. CROWD is an informative group where we worship, pray, listen, discuss, eat, laugh, and have conversations about the world today and how God’s presence surrounds us all. We will also be joining other Bloomington churches once a month for prayer and reflection!     Youth Sunday School 10:45 – 11:45 am Sundays   Youth Sunday School – Middle / High School We’ve rebranded ourselves as “The Crowd Goes Fishing”!  We meet Sunday mornings from 10:45-11:45am in the Youth Room (unless there’s a church wide event – then we’ll join that event).  We had a great first week getting to know our incoming 6th graders and brainstorming on ideas for discussion and projects for the upcoming year.  Please come and join us for discussion, games, food and fun!

We had an overwhelming request to have food each week!  If you’re interesting in helping feed these young people breakfast, please let Jane VeVea ( or Margaret Berg ( know and we’ll get you signed up!

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 Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (2017), Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp in Colorado (2016), the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit (2015), Guatemala Mission (2014), and Detroit Mission Experience (2013). In 2018 it was the ELCA Youth Convention in Houston, TX. In 2019 a mission trip to Indiana to help residents.
