Summer 2018

5th-12th Grade Summer Stretch (June-August) Registration is Closed
Summer Stretch is for students in completed grades 5-12. We gather together on select Wednesdays for a day of fun and rewarding experiences. Youth in completed grades 9-12 are encouraged to participate or apply to serve as leaders for the summer.

Gaga Ball (June-August)
Mondays from 1:00-2:30 PM on June 18, July 9 & 23 and August 13

Gaga Ball is open to anyone in completed grades 4-12. We'll meet at the Word of Peace Gaga "pit" for some fun in the sun! No sign-up is needed and we don't keep score. Please bring a water bottle.

Youth Day at Valleyfair | August 1

Due to overwhelming popularity, Youth Day at Valleyfair is no longer part of the Summer Stretch program; it is an independent event for students in completed grades 5-12 and you must register separately.

Registration Deadline Extended - Sign up today while there's still room!

September through May

Middle School Ministry in the Morning, lovingly known as MSM.AM, meets once a month on Sunday mornings in the youth room from 9:45-10:45. It is a time for 6th-8th grade youth to come together for devotions, bible study, games, and delicious donuts!

MSM.AM is a wonderful opportunity for youth to grow in faith through meaningful discussion and devotion and build loving and faith based friendships. We hope to see you there!



September through May

The purpose of Confirmation is threefold: It affirms our baptisms, provides us instruction in the Christian faith, and connects our faith to our daily lives. Confirmation is a 3 1/2-year program for 6th-9th graders. High School youth are encouraged to take part in our Junior Guide program and be mentors to the younger students. Students are confirmed in January of their 9th grade year.

Event Permission and Health and Information Forms

For safety reasons, a health and information form and event permission form must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian for all off-site church related youth activities (day trips as well as overnight events).

The Event Permission Form must be completed and turned in to the Youth Ministry Office for every youth event a youth participates in.

The Health and Information Form must be completed and turned in to the Youth Ministry Office annually. It will be kept on file in the Youth Ministry Office and does not need to be recompleted for every event a youth participates in.  

Both forms must be turned in to the Youth Ministry Office prior to the start date of the activity or event.
