Youth Group

Welcome to Our Youth Group! We spend our time praying together, playing together, sharing stories, learning from each other, eating, yes, definitely eating together! Our doors and hearts are open to you whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey!

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.  1 Peter 2:9

Sunday Morning for Youth

Sunday school through 12th grade is offered at 9:45-10:45 between church services, September through May. We learn the Word of God, engage in mission work, sing, pray, and laugh together.

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation is an opportunity for 7th and 8th grade students to learn the basics of the faith while being given the space to question, learn, and grow in their relationship to God. Confirmation classes are held 9:45 a.m. Sunday mornings.

Anywhere, Everywhere…

In addition to Wednesday night gatherings, Our Savior Youth Group likes to hit the road, find the river, follow the music, and walk the walk. In other words, we find that sometimes we learn most about God and God’s call for us by leaving home.

Youth Group on the Move



Annually, Our Savior Youth Group takes part in either “Rock the Universe” or Disney’s “Night of Joy.”  We go on retreats like River Rat Ramble, summer camps at Luther Springs in Florida and Luther Rock in North Carolina, the ELCA National Youth Gathering every three years (Houston 2018!), participate in Youth in Action (a local hands-on service ministry) and whatever else we can fit in!

Rise Up!

Take God There!

Come join us and find out where God is leading you!
