Senior High Youth Group meets every Wednesday from 7:30-8:30pm in the youth room upstairs at Peace Lutheran 917 7th St E. Come in the door that says “Welcome” and go straight up the stairs to the 2nd floor. This is a combined youth group with Christ, Our Savior’s and Peace Lutheran.
You won’t want to miss all the learning activities, engaging discussions, hanging out with your friends, meaningful service projects, movie clips, lively games and lots of FUN! We have hot and cold beverages, snacks, and quick meals available, in case you come hungry! We will also be planning next summer’s mission trip at some of these gatherings.
Come check out our new youth room downstairs at Peace on January 22nd at noon and find out more about our mission trip this summer. Senior high students and their parents are welcome!
Middle School Youth Group gathers once a month for a time of fellowship, support, and faith formation. We will be heading to Trollhaugen to ski in January. Due to scheduling conflicts we will not be meeting in February. On March 11th we plan on attending Christ Jam in Rice Lake. Christ Jam is our synod retreat for middle school students and will be an experience our youth won’t want to miss.
Mission Trip: Students currently in grades 8-12 are invited to join us as we serve the people of the Pine Ridge Reservation for a week in August 2017. We will be serving through the Re-Member organization and will not only get a chance to serve, but will also learn about the people of Pine Ridge and what their lives have been like. Students can contact Amy for more information.
Softball: Our youth league is open to students entering grades 6th -10th grade in the fall of 2016. We will begin our practices in May. Games are played most Sundays in June and July. We combine with both Christ and Peace Lutheran for this activity.
Children’s Library: Our Children’s Library offers many age appropriate stories, DVDs, and CDs for children and teens.
Kid’s Against Hunger: Annually we host a Kid’s Against Hunger food packing event to combat hunger in Dunn County and around the world. We welcome groups from our greater community to join us in this effort. Our next packing event is scheduled for April 26, 2017 with shifts starting at 12:30 and ending at 8:30PM. We welcome walk-ins to help pack before 3:30, after that time we ask that everyone sign up ahead of time for a shift.
Milestones: Our milestones program works to assist children and families as they grow in faith together. We celebrate milestones in the lives of our children and students starting with baptism and ending with our graduation milestone.
Luther Park Bible Camp: We encourage our children, youth, and families to attend Luther Park for summer camp and retreats. Our 7th grade confirmation students participate in the Pathfinders program as part of their confirmation experience. Find out more about this amazing camp at www.lutherpark.org. The Women of Our Savior’s offer camp scholarships for students who wish to attend camp. Scholarship forms are available in the church office.
Vacation Bible School: We host a week of VBS every summer, serving children 3 years old through 6th grade. This year VBS will be August 1-4th with our closing program the evening of the 4th. VBS will be held here at Our Savior’s this year.
