We believe that the youth are an integral part of Zoar Lutheran and we recognize the importance of helping youth grow in their faith and become fruitful members of the congregation and community. Our youth can be leaders in the church now and certainly will be our future leaders. Our youth ministry provides a way for youth to actively participate in the church, offers a way for youth to have fun and fellowship with others their own age, provides a structure built on Christianity within which youth can form their values, creates a sense of belonging and a servant mindset and provides youth with a constructive outlet for their energy and social development needs.
Fifth through 12th Grade Sunday School is held in the Top Floor classrooms from 9:45-10:45 a.m.
Classes are split between 5th / 6th, 7th / 8th, and 9th-12th. Lessons include video segments, group discussion, and digging deep into what the Bible teaches and how it applies to the lives of today’s young people. Service projects are often included as well. Friends are always welcome and snacks are always provided.
There are lots of opportunities for 6th grade through college–age youth to get involved outside of Sunday School, Confirmation, and Youth Groups. Check out the “Events” tab on this web site, the monthly newsletter, the bulletin board calendar in the Gathering Area, or the youth Facebook page for the most up- to-date information. Our youth ministry includes Bible classes, service projects, mission trips, small groups and special outreach events. Zoar Lutheran wants youth to have fun experiencing the love of Christ and leave with a desire to reach out to others! Below are just a few of the fun and informative events coming in the weeks ahead:
