VOLUNTEERS NEEDED As some of you may know we are once again without a youth director.  With this being a very busy time of year the Christian Ed & Youth Board is asking for your help!  We have many areas that we are seeking help with different youth events.  Some of them include the following:

K-5 event leaders                                                       Jr High Events  

Sr High Events                                                           Childrens Sermons

Confirmation                                                              Flap Jacks for Faith

I know everyone is busy, even if you can help out with one event that would be great!  We are hoping to have a schedule of events along with a signup sheet.  In the meantime if you think you are able to help out please let Amber Holtan or Kami Spears know.  Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated!!!

 “This Changes Everything” 2018 ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston, TX!!!  

ELCA National Youth Gathering will be June 23-July 2, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Youth that are eligible to attend are in 8th—12th grade at the time of registration. Contact if you are interested in going. Fundraising is a big help with this event.

 IFA The youth will be getting ready for the ELCA National Youth Gathering Trip that will be taken place in Houston, TX June 27th-July 1st, 2018 A great way to insure to go on the trip is to build up an IFA…  What is an IFA? Its an Individual fundraising account set up with the church to help off set the costs of church activities. Who has one? All kids that are little lambs through 12th grade.

How can I contribute to my son or daughters IFA? Watch for the churches bulletin and Newsletter for any up coming events to work. Good examples would be flapjacks for faith and rummage sale. Option two is fundraising, like how the youth were selling calendars earlier this year. We will be seeing more fundraising. There is option three which is to contribute money directly to the IFA.

 Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”


 NOTICE—If you are new to our Sunday School or Youth Activities, please inform the church office of your children’s names, grades, contact phone number and mailing address so we can keep you informed of upcoming events. You can email information to
