Confirmation will begin soon! Any interested 7th or 8th grade youth (or anyone else!) who are interested, please contact the church office.

High School Mission Trip
We have determined that the 2013 summer service-mission trip will be to the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana with Youthworks! We will be gone June 28th-July 6th. This trip is open to students currently in 8th-12th grade. There is a $150 non-refundable deposit necessary to secure your spot. Please turn this in to Pastor Karl by the end of the February. If this deposit poses a hardship, please don't hesitate to contact Pastor Karl.
The youth will be raising money throughout the year to help fund this trip.
