Kidz Klub

Kids Klub is a part of our Youth Ministry that includes children in grades K – 5th. This group meets quarterly and has activities that sometimes include families and other times only includes the children and teen/adult mentors. These are wonderful opportunities for parents to get to know one another as well as for the children to make those special bonds to last a lifetime.

Kids Klub has events filled with fellowship and fun but also takes time to also do service work. Past events have included a family sleepover in tents (inside!) and a Mother’s Day party where the children made crafts, treats and drinks for their mothers to share with them at the end of the event.

 

Middle School

Middle School youth (6th – 8th grades) participate in the Confirmation program at Grace Lutheran. Additional information on this program can be found under the Faith Formation tab. As part of the Confirmation, our middle school youth attend two Confirmation Retreats at Luther Springs in Hawthorne, FL  typically in October and again in January.

Our middle school youth also have the opportunity to participate in service work. The youth plan service work, as well as participate in church-wide community service events.  A couple of the annual events the youth participate in are God’s Work Our Hands-September, Trunk or Treat-October and Nigh in Bethlehem- December.

We have youth group activities quarterly where they have a chance to get together off-site for fun and fellowship. The youth pick activities, including bowling, roller skating, wet-n-messy day…  They also have the opportunity to go to the Luther Springs Decatha-Lockin and River Rat Ramble events.
