AdventELC has a lot to offer youth, from Sunday School,
Youth Nights, Retreats, Camps, Mission Trips, and more!

Youth Groups at AdventELC.png

» Grades 1-5

  Young Youth, better known as y² , meets once a month on a select Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00 p.m.  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 the Lord 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.

Contact Matt Pittman for more information on this great group!
We hope you can come!

Confirmation » Grades 6-8

Our Confirmation program is three years long, usually during the 6-8th grade years, with a three year rotation of subjects of learning about the Bible, Luther's Small Catechism, and Lifelong Discipleship. This year our focus will be on the Bible.

The word Bible literally means little library. This year we will take an in-depth look at where the Bible comes from, important stories, different literary forms used to convey God's truth, and more!

We meet each Sunday night from 5:30-7:30pm during the school year, unless otherwise noted. 

  • 5:30pm - Dinner with 6-12 graders

  • 6:00pm - Learning Time

  • 7:00pm - Flex Time with Confirmation Chimes, Silly Pastor Games, and more!

We love to go to camp! Camping brings people together to experience Christ through natural settings and programs. Our home camp is Hopewood Pines at LMC. Through our Friday–Sunday Winter Retreat and our week long Summer Camp, campers will build stronger relationships and learn about faith, while engaging in camp activities, including: 40-foot climbing tower, zip line, one high ropes course element, archery, hiking, cooking over a fire, and arts & crafts.

Campers will be assigned to a cabin counselor. You will swim, worship, and participate in team builders. Confirmation camp allows church leadership to spend time with their youth and enhance their confirmation programs. Pastor Aaron will be at the camp for the week as well.

Sr. High » Grades 1-5

As followers of Jesus we explore life through love, openness, and respect of each other as a community.

What makes our Youth Group different than any other club at school or in the community is Jesus. We talk about Jesus, who He is and what a relationship with Him looks like.  We love fun, food, friends, and faith... and we hope that you'll come and enjoy all those things with us!
 

Join us every Sunday night from 5:30-7:30pm., unless otherwise noted. 

  • 5:30pm - Dinner with 6-12 graders

  • 6:00pm - Learning Time
