Faith Lutheran Church

Faith Youth

Wednesdays, September - May 6:30 - 8:00 pm, Grades 10-12
Meet in the Sanctuary at 6:30pm for Act One Worship and then the Youth Room.
TOPIC  We begin with TOPIC, a  discussion based on a topic that the youth chose. Youth have really enjoyed TOPIC the last few years as Drop-in provides a safe and comfortable place to discuss current events, personal issues, as well as faith related questions. After TOPIC we have a great time hanging in the Youth Room! 



Youth Council
The Youth Council is a group of 7th-12th graders who meet monthly during the school year.  Any youth in these grades are invited to come to a Youth Council meeting if they have a special concern, activity idea, or would just like to get more information about the youth group. All are welcome! 
Youth Council History: In the fall of 2006, the Youth Team was formed for 7th-12th graders. The team’s focus was to come up with new activities for the youth program and discuss upcoming events. In the beginning the group met in the Faith House. Their first big idea was to host a Battle of the Bands which they planned and held in the spring of 2007. The focus for the second year of the Youth Team became creating the Youth Room as it was ready for the youth to move in from the Faith House. The Youth Team surveyed students to see what the needs and wants were of the space. Then they made a list of the items that seemed to be the most important. One of the top priorities was to make the space feel friendly, warm and fun! With the list made, the team went shopping! The team also decided that having a chalk board wall was a great idea and chose the paint color. The Youth Team made the youth room what it is today as well as allowed it to continually be updated with the wall! They definitely succeeded in making it an inviting space for the youth. It is the perfect spot to relax, hang with friends, and grow in faith through discussions on comfy couches! The best part is that it’s a Youth Room designed by Youth. Stop by to check it out and write on the chalkboard wall!
After the successful planning for the youth room it was decided that the Youth Team needed a new name to be more official and so began the Youth Council. The Youth Council is still around today and meets once a month in the Youth Room. They continue to be leaders in the youth program and active in church life at Faith. There are currently 15 members on the Youth Council who all play important roles from the president to the head chef! The Youth Council has been a blessing to the youth program and Youth Director for over 6 years. They have shaped the youth program to be what it is today. Their goal has always been to create the best youth program for Faith Lutheran Church!
