Peace offers separate Sunday school/Bible study classes on Sunday mornings for both youth ministry groups. Classes are held during the Sunday school hour, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The 7th and 8th grade class is in conjunction with and a part of youth confirmation program at Peace.
In both groups these classes serve to keep your young people “in touch” with their Savior and with each other during the transitional teenage years.
As a complement to our Youth Bible class, our young people are encouraged to participate in a variety of youth activities, both servant and fellowship. Servant activities include such things as the annual “Bowl for Life, sponsoring a family at Christmas, supporting a Haitian child and so much more. Fellowship activities include weekend retreats and lock ins, skiing and/or snow tubing, and our infamous BUT fun “Mystery Trips”. Our hope is that through these events our youth will have the opportunity to enjoy Christian fun and fellowship.
In order to affirm Christ-centered education, the congregation offers scholarships for those who choose to enroll their children in a Lutheran elementary school and/or high school. Application for a scholarship is submitted annually to the Board of Education. Scholarships are awarded based on the availability of funds and the number of requests made.
In order to affirm the choice of the youth in our congregation to pursue vocations in professional church work, the congregation offers scholarships to those attending one of the schools of the Concordia University System. The only requirement is that the applicant is pursuing a degree in a church work field or vocation. (i.e. Pastor, teacher, DCE, etc.) Application is made to the Board of Education annually. Scholarships are awarded based on need and availability of funds.
This ministry engages children from grades 5-12, to share God's Word and His Love, through skits and songs, with cute and fun loving puppets. Performances address everyday challenges that children encounter and offers guidance from the Bible. In addition, puppeteers develop creativity, confidence, and group bonding when they perform at church services, Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and other special events.
