Youth Sunday School
The Youth Sunday school class is for youth in grades 7-12. During the 2014-2015 school year, the Youth are focusing on Biblical Prophets. The youth class also designs and leads an entire Worship service one Sunday each year. This process helps the youth to understand and integrate knowledge of reformed forms of worship into their theological identity.
LPCYF meets weekly from 5-7 p.m. for faith formation and fellowship activities. The group is open to all youth in grades 7-12. Some of our activities have included, baking cookies for college students, Whirly Ball, Laser tag, lock-ins, and bowling. Youth are encouraged to attend regularly and to bring friends. Youth do not need to be members of LPC to attend the fellowship events.
The youth service is held once each year in the late Winter or early Spring. It is an opportunity for the youth in grades 7-9 to quite literally ‘take over’ worship for the day and offer their message to the congregation. Topics can range from stewardship of the planet to world hunger, the life of a disciple to loving neighbors as ourselves, and the idea is to relax, have fun, and allow the youth to teach the adults. Each year brings something different, but congregants can always count on laughing, singing and learning.
Confirmation is offered as needed for youth in grades 7-9. (Usually every other year) Confirmation is designed to help lead youth into making an informed decision to join the Church and confirm the vows which were made for them at their baptism. Confirmation explores many topics including, “What does it mean to be “Presbyterian”? “Where does Christianity fit in with other world religions?” and “Can I still be a Christian if I have questions and doubts? “
