High School Youth: grades 9-12


ff hs grpWestern1We are expanding our Faith Formation program for our high school students. Their program incorporates fellowship, learning and serving opportunities. Additional information can be found in the Mission, Gather, and Connect sections. Also check out some pictures from the last ELCA gathering: Rise Up! Please contact Deaconess Kristen for more details.


High School Fellowship and Caring Conversation

All High Schoolers are invited to fellowship and caring conversation in DK's office on Sunday mornings from 9:10–10:10 a.m., beginning August 28*. Topics of conversation will include current events, Biblical connections to today's world, and whatever else needs to be discussed. Brian Carlson will once again be leading this awesome time of reflecting on God's activity in our lives.

Senior High Mystery Trip: June 23–28

Please pray for our group of High Schoolers and their adult leaders as they LIVE BY FAITH on a Mystery Trip! Only the adult leaders and parents know what is happening, but they won't say a word to the students! Each day will bring a new adventure and a new opportunity for learning, service, or fellowship. Stay tuned to the Bethlehem Lutheran Member Facebook page for snap shots of each day's adventures. Contact Deaconess Sarah Loberg with any questions.
