Youth Events

We offer a varied and active program of faith formation for youth. Our 2016-2017 program is still being created, but here a sampling of what we did last year:

  • Observed MLK Day together at Luther Seminary. We listened to and learned from some powerful Twin Cities African American leaders. Keynote speaker was Nekima Levy-Pounds, Professor of Law, University of St. Thomas; Founding Director, Community Justice Project; President, NAACP Minneapolis.
  • Lock-in at Bethel (a collaborative event with a couple of neighboring congregations)
  • Presented Servanthood Interviews -- youth interviewed congregation members about servanthood, then reported back to the congregation.
  • Interfaith Youth Day of Service -- a day of learning and service at Augsburg.
  • Easter Vigil -- dramatic readings and celebration
  • Youth-Led Worship Service on Mother’s Day
  • Bake sale -- to help fund two youth trips, a civil rights trip to the South, and a canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area
