Youth

IMG_0234First Lutheran seeks to encourage the youth to fully participate in church life and to grow in their faiths. We desire parent-supported youth participation in worship services, learning opportunities, and service and fellowship activities.

Special activities are planned and implemented jointly by our Coordinator of Children, Youth and Family Ministry, parents and others with passion for youth ministry. Past activities have included YOUTHWORKS mission trips, two mission trips to the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina, a houseboat trip to Northern Minnesota, rock-climbing at REI in Bloomington, downhill skiing; and on-site activities such as lock-ins, rock-a-thon, 30 Hour Famine and movie/game nights.
