Lutheran Youth Fellowship and Junior Youth Members

The purpose of the youth ministry programs at Faith is to:
  • Strengthen, build up, and encourage one another in the Body of Christ.
  • Recognize and nurture God-given gifts and abilities.
  • Foster Christian stewardship of time, talents, and resources in all areas of ministry.
  • Foster fellowship and community with others, and to develop an attitude of service to and caring for all humanity.
  • Deepen our relationship in the Triune God, and to examine and apply that relationship as it relates to our daily lives.

It is a journey to Embassy Suites—
What?! Get out of town! The Embassy Suites?! - Yes indeed, Omaha, NE. November 18-20
Cost—The LYF will pay for the rooms. The church will provide the Church vans and gas.
Your only cost is the $115.00 registration and two meals.
Great speakers, an illusionist, and “211” will be the Gathering band.

What about a Christmas Ski trip with an overnighter in the Black Hills in December?
Twin Cities Trip
It was a great trip to the Twin Cities, Concordia University, The Mall of the World, and Valley Fair. What fun!

Concordia University is Pastor Urbach’s Alma Mater. While not a huge campus, it was pretty cool.

A huge LYF thanks to Mike Shoup and Jodi Hartmann for being the leaders on the trip. The LYF has given them both a gift to View 34 as a way to say thanks.

LYF - Looking Ahead

We will take a short summer trip in the summer of 2012 which would include a day at the water park in Rapid and a trip to Rushmore for the Lighting Ceremony and a night in Rapid.

But—starting in Lent with a little matching gift from our Thrivent For Lutherans Choice Fund, we are setting out sights on a huge group attending our Synod’s 2013 San Antonio Youth Gathering

“Live Love(d)”
