JUNIOR HIGH MINISTRY
During this three-year ministry, youth explore the stories of the Old and New Testaments and learn the basics of our faith: the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Sacraments. We want the youth to not only learn more about their faith, but also form friendships within the faith. We strive for each Confirmation Small Group to be a place where youth can share their struggles, laugh, play, and pray for one another as their faith seeks understanding. Opportunities for retreats, fellowship, and service are also a part of this ministry.
GROWING IN FAITH…ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT.
Camp Hope is unique because of its leadership. Camp Hope is staffed by Middle School, High School, and College age youth who want to do something that matters with their summer, be part of a community, and learn to be servant leaders. These youth are interviewed, trained, and empowered to be Christian leaders through this camp. Children may begin as young campers but as they grow in years they are mentored to become Support Staff, Small Group Leaders, Directors, and Camp Managers. Through Camp Hope we are intentional about raising up faithful leaders who serve not only in this congregation but also in the world.
HIGH SCHOOL MINISTRY
CONTACT: KRISTEN SCHULZE
Here at Kinsmen, we strive to offer opportunities for high school students to experience friendship, be mentored in leadership, and grow as disciples.
The high school group gathers during the academic year for bible study, community service, and fellowship events. There are opportunities for students to grow in their faith through leading in a variety of ways. It is our hope that every student will discover and use their unique gifts for the good of God’s kingdom.
