The Youth Ministry is up and running at full steam at St. Paul Lutheran Church! All Youth in Grades 6-8 are always welcome to join our Middle School Youth Group, “God Squad!” If you are in Grades 9-12, we would love for you to join “T.E.A.L.” (Teens Empowered w/ Almighty Love), our High School Youth Group! The focus of these sensational youth groups is to offer our youth many opportunities to grow strong in their faith in our Lord and Savior and to provide as many opportunities to practice this amazing faith as possible. It is critical that our teens realize that God loves them unconditionally! We are not perfect, but rather forgiven through our faith in our one true God.
(Teens Empowered w/ Almighty Love)
Available for any Youth in Grades 9-12
Meets three times a month on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sundays (with the Middle School Youth) from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Whether this group is trying to bust out of an escape room, engage in hilarious games of “Sardines,” jump as high as they can at trampoline parks, “Capture the Flag” from one another, participate in meaningful devotions, discuss current topics, or share the love of Jesus with one another, T.E.A.L. shares the love of Jesus in their hearts with one another and has a lot of fun doing it!
Future Goals of T.E.A.L. – attending gatherings of Kingdom Bound at Darien Lake and the National LCMS Youth Gatherings, making a difference on mission trips, engaging with other local youth groups in fun and in service, serving our community and the members of our congregation, having fun and fellowship with all of their peers, and strengthening their amazing faith in our Lord God!
Available for any Youth in Grades 6-8
Meets three times a month on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sundays (with the High School Youth) from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Building lifelong friendships, getting lost in corn mazes, stomping one another’s balloons, reflecting on God’s love for each one of us, skating circles around one another at the roller rink, openly sharing our thoughts, feelings, and opinions with each other, and strengthening our faith in our Lord God are just some of the things that the God Squad can be caught doing on a regular basis!
Future Goals of God Squad – planning exciting activities both at St. Paul and at local venues, creating lasting friendships with one another, meeting peers from other local Youth groups, getting locked in at St. Paul, serving and assisting others in our church and in our community, and surrounding ourselves with God’s Almighty Love!
