F.L.Y. Club

NO F.L.Y. Club on November 23rd. Happy Thanksgiving!

FLY Club is an afterschool program on Wednesdays from 3-5:30. This is for Children in Kindergarten to 12th grade.  The ministry incorporates the Word of God, intergenerational friendships, and helps develop a resilient identity in Christ by providing an honest, warm, open space for youth to challenge their faith. We will work through Answers in Genesis curriculum. 

2:45-3:00 Snack

3:00-4:00 Christian Education (Answers in Genesis or Confirmation)

4:00-5:30 Youth Group 

Youth Group will consist of large and small group activities. We will write in our prayer journals to our adult partners monthly, play games, go outside (weather permitting), craft, service project if any, and on the last Wednesday of the month provide a meal for their families. It is important to slow down and have family time together. Life is busy, especially when your child(ren) are in sports, clubs, or any extra curricular activity. The childen will plan the meal they want to provide, cook it and serve it to their families. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to slow down and enjoy family time. The round tables will be set up for each family to sit at their own table. We will provide an activity or you can utilize that time to talk about everyones day. 

We are looking forward to this new ministry after school and we can't wait to see what God has planned for us. 

Transportation

Busing: If your child currently rides the bus and has only 1 stop requested after school, you may add First Lutheran as an additional stop. If you already have 2 stops on your busing schedule and you cannot remove one of them, we will work with you on walking to the church after school. 

Walking: Children can walk to the church after school from the Middle School. If they currently ride the bus, have them ride to the Middle School and walk from there. It is 6 blocks to First Lutheran from the Middle School. 

Ride: You may choose to bring your child to First Lutheran, ride share with a friend.

If these choices do not work for you, please reach out so we can try to accommodate your needs.

Vacation Bible Camp 

Held on the Wednesday after Tall Timber Days in August

Thank you to everyone that was involved in VBC this year! 

At Vacation Bible Camp children will learn that The Tree of Life: God's Promise of Salvation is His promise to us. The Tree of Life examines God’s plan of salvation as it unfolds through the Old Testament and is fulfilled in the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The last lesson will focus on God's promise of Jesus' coming as our Savior. Your children won't want to miss this experience as we learn all this outside in God's creation. Special activities will include science experiments and fishing off the dock at Gunn Park. Please join us for a fun picnic after our closing at 4:00.

Vacation Bible Camp is FREE and for anyone ages 3-11 in our community. 

lesson 2- we see how God chose an aged couple, Abraham and Sarah, and promised them a child from which He would raise up a new nation that would bring the world our Savior. We will also see God call on Abraham to offer his beloved son as a burnt offering, through which God will teach us many important things about the great substitutionary sacrifice of His own beloved Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross.

lesson 4- we look at the familiar story of the shepherd boy David fighting against the Philistine giant, Goliath. David’s seemingly impossible victory shines a new light on Good Friday and the seeming impossibility of Jesus defeating our greatest enemies, armed with nothing but a cross made of wood.

lesson 5- we see Daniel, a powerful and noble Jew, falsely accused, sentenced to death, and sealed in a tomb with a large stone. We will examine how closely Daniel’s trials and judgment and “death and resurrection” matched those of Jesus Christ.

lesson 9- After His death on the cross, Jesus was sealed in a tomb with a large stone. But He didn’t stay dead. In lesson nine, we talk about His empty tomb and what His resurrection means for our lives today and in the future. In Jesus’ death, death itself, which has stalked God’s creation since Adam and Eve’s fall, has been forever defanged.

Youth Gathering

  • Youth Gatherings proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ and God’s saving grace to His people through Christ. In this setting, young people grow in their personal relationship with God and grow in their fellowship of Word and Sacrament in Christ’s Church.
  • Youth Gatherings are a vehicle by which the Church reaches out to, cares for and affirms young people, both churched and unchurched.
  • Youth Gatherings equip youth and adults for ministry and vocational service in a variety of settings in their congregations, communities, and world.
  • Youth Gatherings affirm, equip, and support adults who work with young people.
  • Youth Gatherings celebrate the meaning of Christian joy in all of life’s situations, including transitions and crisis.
  • Youth Gatherings recognize and affirm the diversity of God’s people
  • Youth Gatherings affirm, support, and promote the ministry of LCMS Districts and congregations.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Family Camp 

Save the date July 16th through the 19th, 2023

Since 2018 we have taken the youth to Lutheran Island Camp or Camp Fire Camp Bluewater for a fun week of being in God's word. This week is about building relationships with each other and growing closer to God and knowing that Jesus died on the cross for each and everyone of us. This years theme is Messy. Life is messy, but God is with us in our mess and Jesus is the ONLY one that is able to clean up our mess. We realize that we are not perfect and we need Jesus.
