Youth Ministry at Holy Redeemer
One of Holy Redeemer's biggest strengths is our children & youth ministry. We have numerous dedicated adult leaders who are passionate about fostering discipleship in our young people. Through fun, fellowship, discussion and teaching the Biblical narrative, we provide a safe space for youth to grow in their relationship with God.
This year we will have Sunday School (SCS) every other Sunday. SCS is from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with a snack provided.
SCS is open to children 3 years old - 6th grade. We ask 7-12th grade students to help and act as student leaders.
As a group the children will hear a bible story, read verses from the bible, and do activities which will help them grow to know the love God has for them.
Dates of SCS: 1/13, 1/27, 2/10, 2/24, 3/10, 3/24, 4/7
During the school year, Confirmation is held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 p.m. At Holy Redeemer, we have confirmation for two years starting in 7th grade. Students are confirmed on the Day of Pentecost after their 2nd year.
Our Confirmation curriculum is ReForm & Collaborate, which does a great job teaching the basic tenets of faith along with preparing teenagers to live out their faith in the changing world.
Confirmation isn't a time where we provide all the answers. Instead, it's a space for kids to ask those deep questions and discover together what being a Christian means today.
Summer Youth Events
We send our youth to Camp EWALU which is a great Bible Camp that provides a fun experience of God for our young people. In recent years we have also had some of our young adults provide their loving guidance as camp counselors.
Last summer we sent a group of our high school students to Houston, TX for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. The Youth Gathering occurs every three years with Minneapolis, MN being the host city in 2021. The Gathering offers youth the opportunity to provide community service to the area and worship together with youth from all over the United States. During the year we have various fundraisers to help support this trip as well as other activities the youth participate in.
For more information about Camp EWALU, the ELCA Youth Gathering, or other fellowship activities for the youth, please contact us.
