y - Young Youth Group
Young Youth, better known as y² , meets on a Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00 p.m. once a month. This is for youth 1st - 5th grades.
During this time, youth get to know each other, play games, and have a lot of fun! They learn about God and how He exists in their everyday lives.
The y² group is also involved in service projects. We do an annual Valentine distribution project, and we help to lead a service during the season of Lent.
The Prayer Buddy Program is another important feature available to our y² group. Each y² youth is paired with a more mature member of the congregation for one year. The y² youth and their Prayer Buddy pray for each other throughout the year. Sponsors help the youth with questions to ask their Prayer Buddy so they can get to know them better. Each year the y² youth has a different Prayer Buddy. The program runs from October-June and concludes with the Prayer Buddy Banquet.

PRAYER BUDDY MINISTRY
About 40 adults and youth came out on a rainy night on this past Wednesday. The purpose for this gathering was to reconnect in person with our Prayer Buddy Ministry. Our y2 (1st-5th graders) have been paired with the same OWL (Older Wiser Lutherans) prayer buddy throughout this odd time of COVID and the ministry kind of stalled, like everything other ministry. With the help of Jean Pontious and Matt Pittman, we were able to restart this important ministry! The Prayer Buddy Banquet Meet & Greet was the way we did this. The OWLs and the y2, with their families, ended the COVID pairing and kicked off the new pairings for the 2021-22 year with a question: What's your favorite food to eat? It was a great night of intergenerational fellowship, fun, and ice cream!!!
