Youth

Engaging Youth in Faith and the World

Young people today have a creative and engaged interest in the shape of their personalities. Finding themselves and crafting an identity is informed by the many layers of culture, peers, academics, sports, family, faith and more. We want to provide a place where teens can explore and construct greater meaning and purpose as they engage the world.

Ongoing Activities

Middle School Confirmation

Middle School confirmation is designed for teens from 6th - 8th grade. It is a three-year program that provides a solid framework on which to craft a lifetime of faith and human development. It begins on the second Sunday in September and continues to mid-May with a few breaks over the holidays. Each Sunday session starts at 10:45 a.m. with a large group gathering and then splits into small groups for a deeper discussion. For more information, email  confirmation@oslc.net


 

Senior High & College Teens

Our Senior High and College Teens are launching a Peer to Peer Ministry program in 2020/2021. This means that rather than the church creating programs for you (based on our ideas of what youth want and need!), instead, you have the opportunity to be a leader in our church and help us to figure out what we will do together based on what you are passionate about and see as a need. It's also about supporting your friends and community in this difficult moment. If you're interested in learning about how to support your friends struggling with their mental health, or our community as we grapple with racism, or with educating people about gender and sexual diversity -- basically anything you care about, we care about! 

Please reach out with any questions about the program or the application process! Don't stress too much, just hit record and share your thoughts. It can be rambly we just want to hear your ideas and get to know you better. For further information, send an email to Sheryl, youth@oslc.net.
