Youth Calendar 2016- ELC
Emanuel offers a Youth Group for all youth in grades 8 through 12. Guided by volunteers from Emanuel, they meet twice a month after worship in addition to special events such as the Youth Gathering of the New England Synod at Hammonasset in September and The Zone event in the winter. Spending time having fun together, the youth continue their faith formation in a variety of ways, including Bible study, movie and book discussions, guest speakers and regular opportunities to be of service to God and God’s world.
Believing teens have a fresh and vital perspective to offer, Emanuel encourages all youth to participate in any event that is typically considered Adult Education. Teens also serve the Emanuel faith community as Sunday School Aides and teachers, sound technicians, musicians and lectors during worship, cast members of the Lucia Festival, and members of the Church Council. They serve the neighborhood in fellowship with residents of Capitol Towers and with participants in Friday Night Program for neighborhood children.
The youth are currently preparing for and raising funds to attend the ELCA’s National Youth Gathering in Detroit July 2015. For more information, please contact Mark Hollertz or log onto this website: www.elca.org/youthgathering
