JR. HIGH YOUTH (6th-8th grade)

Confirmation is a discipleship based program that gives the family at OSLC the opportunity to do all we can to assist parents and families in the responsibility to “rear your child in the fear and admonition of the LORD.” Confirmation is a stepping stone in a young person’s faith walk and will hopefully become a strong foundation of faith for which to stand on.

Who is OSLC’s Confirmation class for?
At Our Savior Lutheran Church, Confirmation happens in the 6th – 8th Grade. If you are interested in joining or have a child interested in joining our Confirmation program please contact the church office at 563-332-5141 and ask for our Director of Youth Ministry, Eric Brei.

If you are a high school student desiring to join Our Savior and confirm your faith or have a high school student with that desire, contact Director of Youth Ministry, Eric Brei in the church office at 563-332- 5141.

Sunday Night Gatherings are for all jr. high youth and their friends. They take place once a month on a Sunday evening from 6-8pm. Sunday Night Gatherings consist of large and small group games, refreshment time, and devoting time to God’s Word. The events take place in the Family Life Center (Gym) or off-site somewhere within the QC area.

SR. HIGH YOUTH (9th-12th grade)

During the school year (Sept.-May), our Sr. High youth are invited to drop-in to the church on
Wednesday evening from 7-9pm. We hang out and play games, enjoy some snacks, and dive into God’s Word and how it applies to our lives. We also try to bring a service opportunity to the group every month. Friends are welcome.

Every summer the youth are encouraged to take part in this week-long servant event that takes place in a Midwestern community. Teenserve organizes all the homes that need help and arranges all the lodging and meals for the week. Youth groups from all over the Midwest travel to the set location to form crews of youth from various churches and strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus within the community where they are serving. Please contact Director of Youth Ministry Eric Brei if you are interested. Email: oslcdym@mediacombb.net or call/text 217-412-2806.
