Upcoming Events and Programs:

May 19th will be our Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser to support our students to allow them to go to the FLY Convention, FLY Beyond leadership camp, and other youth activities. The support that our students receive is often a vital part of enabling them to participate in these ongoing events. We will start serving at 8:30 am and a free-will offering will be taken.

Checks will be accepted and can be made out to Hope Free Lutheran Youth

Life often passes by and we find ourselves neglecting our First Love. Let’s press pause for a sweet moment and gather together at the feet of Jesus to lift our voices in worship to Him. We will gather at 6:30pm and finish by 8:00pm

Are you ready for a large-scale capture the flag game with multiple teams competing at one time? It promises to be an epic night together! Capture the flag not your cup of tea? Well, why don’t you still come out and enjoy the evening together with your church family and join us for the cook-out.

Gear up for a week of transformation and training and see what God is wanting to do in and through your life as you life faithfully for Him in the day to day. FLY Beyond is our national training and equipping camp for students and it will be held at the Association Retreat Center in Osceola WI on July 14-18,, 2024.

We are planning on packing quite a bit into these few days including a service project, a camp out, and lots of great time together to make memories and encourage one another.

One of the exciting opportunities at Hope is for our students to participate in the Youth Leadership Team. This opportunity gives the students a chance to impact the direction of the youth ministry at Hope, to get their hands dirty with different ministry tasks and experiences, and to be challenged and encouraged to see where the Lord has gifted them to serve His body through the local congregation. Applications for the 2024-25 school year are due August 18th.

Our Youth Group exists to Grow and Go. Our first focus is to grow in Christ as we encounter Him through His revealed Word, the Bible. Then, we seek to grow in knowledge as we continue to learn about Him, the world He created, and how to rightly live in this world. Next, we seek to grow together as we experience the true fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters. Equally important to our growth is understanding God’s call for us to go as well. God has called us all to make disciples of all nations and our students are included in that call. This together is our purpose…to grow and to go.

Do you find yourself really wanting to go to an event but you just can’t afford it? Don’t let money be the only thing keeping you from what God may have for you. Take the time to download the form and apply for a scholarship!
