Peace Lutheran’s high school youth are involved in church in a number of ways.

We meet most Sunday mornings during the school year from 9:15-10:15 for “Coffee and Conversation“, a relaxed time to talk about life and faith.

Our youth serve the church as ushers, nursery attendants, worship assistants, and on the church council, and thus they are integrated into the life of the church.

They have monthly special activities. Often, these activities are in conjunction with the Youth Group at the nearby Episcopal Church, St. Albans, with whom we have a long-standing relationship of support.

Each summer the youth group goes on a Mission Trip to serve an impoverished community in rural Virginia. Email Pastor Sarah if you are interested in going on next summer’s trip.

Every three years, high school youth gather with thousands of youth from around the country at the ELCA Youth Gathering. In 2015, they went to Detroit. The next youth gathering is June 27 – July 1, 2018, in Houston.

 

Please check out the new volunteer sign-up sheets outside of the Sunday School rooms and consider volunteering your time and talents to the youth ministry at Peace! Suggestions and ideas are welcome; please contact Nadia Fitzcharles.
