About once a month or so, the youth of our congregation gather for a service project, games and/or a meal. Most events are open to grades 3-12, and sometimes we invite our parents, too!
Annual events include:
Leading worship on Youth Sunday (though many older youth regularly serve as readers, assisting ministers, communion assistants, and ushers throughout the year!):
Preparing and serving a meal one Sunday each fall at My Brother’s Table, a ministry of the Salvation Army (Martin Luther helped this year!):
Cleaning up trash at Letort Park on God’s Work. Our Hands. Sunday
This spring, we also made blankets for students of the Head Start programs hosted at First Lutheran.
