We have made some changes with our youth group schedule. The youth committee met and with input from youth decided to change the schedule slightly. Youth group will still be open to all youth in grades 6 through 12. There will be no scheduled event the first Wednesday of every month. The second and fourth Wednesdays will be for grades 6-8 from 8-9 pm at Faith in the youth area. The third Wednesday of every month will be for grades 9-12 and will be at an area coffee shop etc. from 8-9 pm. I will take ideas from youth and post the location on the Faith Lutheran Youth Facebook page as well as text from the youth phone.
Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO) which includes each and every high school student in congregations across the western North Dakota synod will be meeting in October. Each fall, hundreds of young people from our congregations come together for the annual LYO Gathering, 3 days focused on growing and sharing our faith, serving the world in Christ’s name, engaging in dynamic worship, and building relationships. The 2016 LYO Gathering will be held here in Bismarck from October 22nd through October 24th. Registrations must be submitted online at wndsynod.org. To help our families it has been decided that we have youth funds available to help youth attend this event. The fee is $150, however all youth that attend only have to pay $75!! We have dedicated youth funds to help families pay the other portion. Also, remember that all ninth graders will be expected to attend LYO due to the Medora 8th grade confirmation trip cancellation. Please contact me if this poses a conflict.
We would like to engage our high school youth with a mission/service trip at the end of next summer. The youth committee is currently considering options for a trip. The trip will start and end AFTER summer school summer of 2017. If you have an idea for a trip please feel free to contact me with the input. And of course the following summer (2018) will be the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas. I have included a survey to gauge interest in the two events. Please return to me as soon as possible (you can send them back, slide them under my door, drop in an offering plate, put in my mail box, or return at orientation). The 2017 summer trip is open to youth currently in 8th grade through 12th grade. National Youth Gathering in 2018 will include all youth currently in 7th grade through 11th grade.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to sign up for anything please contact me as soon as possible.
