YOUTH

ACTIVITIES AND PROGRAMS FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS


Hope has many opportunities for children and youth to learn about their faith and build life-long friendships.


YOUTH PROGRAMS

Hope Lutheran Church is committed to helping youth grow spiritually and walk with Jesus Christ wherever they are.  The youth are looking forward to upcoming Junior High and Senior High retreats at Mt. Cross as well as participating in many events at Hope:  Youth Sunday, Outreach programs, Cafe Hope and more.  All are welcome to join our youth events, whether or not you are a member at Hope.

Youth

Sunday School

Sunday School at Hope is a Bible-based program of Christian education and faith to nurture for children aged 3 through grade 5. Classes meet weekly at 11:00 AM on Sunday mornings from September until June.



First Communion

First Communion classes are offered every year in the weeks leading up to Holy Week. The classes are intended for children age six and up to prepare them to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion.



Confirmation

Grades 6 – 8. This awesome program, focusing on a small group ministry format, involves a combination of Pastor-led Bible studies, Lutheran theology, youth-led games and skits, snacks, service projects and social events. We meet on Sundays during the school year at the church. Newcomers are always welcome!



Hope's Safe Community Policy


A Commitment to Sanctuary
Adopted by the Church Council, September, 1998

In recognition of the spiritual and public trust given to this faith community, Hope Lutheran Church is committed to being a true sanctuary, both nurturing and protecting its members and visitors. Worship of God requires openness, trust, intimacy, vulnerability, and a safe, supportive community. Abuse and harassment are, therefore, violations of the faith shared by this congregation. Accordingly, the congregation will maintain official policies and procedures which assure prevention of instances of abuse, appropriate intervention into alleged incidents of abusive behavior, and care for all involved. These procedures will be reviewed by the Church Council annually to correspond to changes in civil law and the community.
