Youth

New Youth Schedule

Both middle and high school youth will meet every Sunday during the month except the last Sunday of the month.
High School Youth are going to explore: Tough Faith Questions”

through a resource called Re:form. There is a video component that sets up each lesson. Questions range from “Can you accept the theory of evolution and still be a Christian?” to “What does God think about war?”
Middle School Youth will also use the Re:form series.

They will start the year learning about the Bible by exploring questions like “Who wrote the bible, God or humans?” and “Why does the Bible contradict itself at times?” Then, we will move ahead to discuss big questions that enter around the Apostles’ Creed like “Can it be proven that God exits?”

We believe

…that youth are not just the future of the church, but that they are already a vital part of it. Christ Lutheran encourages all middle schoolers and high schoolers to be active in the life of our congregation. Youth participate and lead in worship as assisting ministers, acolytes, crucifiers, by singing in the choir, and playing in the handbell choir.

In addition to these worship leadership opportunities, Christ Lutheran holds regular youth group meetings called ChrisTeens. The middle school ChrisTeens meet on the second Sunday of the month; the high school ChrisTeens meet on the third Sunday of the month; and, on the fourth Sunday of the month the middle and high school ChrisTeens meet for a special event or service activity. We meet from 5 to 6:30 pm in the church fellowship hall. Youth enjoy food, fellowship, and faith formation.

Christ Lutheran ChrisTeens attends statewide and national youth events. To check out statewide events, please visit the Virignia Synod’s Youth website. To learn more about the next national youth gathering, please visit the ELCA’s Youth Gathering website.
