I have been crucified with Christ & I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
- Galatians 2:20
High School Youth Ministry known also as Active Christian Teens (ACT) is a place to learn about the love of God & the eternal life given to us by grace through faith in the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ. Upon this foundation we will work to advance each & every youth on their journey of faith & their personal relationship with Christ along with making disciples. It is open to all 9th – 12th graders no matter what school they attend.
To accomplish these goals we have set up a rotating four year calendar (for their 4 HS years). During these years we have chosen specific Bible studies, topics and events to prepare them for life and also build relationships with other youth & adults. These topics are covered during Wednesday nights from 6:30pm – 7:30pm; and Sunday mornings from 9:15am – 10:15am at Sunday School. We also offer small group night once a month in homes of our youth leaders where we tackle various topics and questions of the youth.
We want to be Rooted in God, Growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ, and Reproducing Disciples by the Holy Spirit.
High School Ministry also participates in the LCMS National Youth Gathering every three years (2019 Minneapolis), a mission trip to various locations every three years (Summer 2021 TBD), a Iowa District West Youth Gathering each November, a special Good Friday event each year along with other various relational events throughout the years. We have a passion to serve not only at our church but also in our surrounding communities.
