LCC Youth

Today’s teenagers face one of the most difficult times in history of finding their identity in life. In a world with streaming ideas and shifting values, our youth need something reliable, something authentic—something true.

The goal of Youth Ministry (for grades 6-12)  is to establish a community of teenagers and their families who are experiencing the joy of Christ. We believe these years are not merely to be survived, but rather they are years to discover what God has in store for each young person.

Our desire is to lead teenagers in Christian discipleship and to support and equip parents in their calling.

 

Wednesday Meetings

The Youth gather every Wednesday night to experience God through worship, preaching, and fellowship. The meeting begins each week at 7:00p and takes place at the LCC building in the Youth Room upstairs.

The first Wednesday of every month is a Youth and Parent meeting, where the parents are invited to join the youth at 6:30p for dinner, a game, worship, and a sermon. This is the only night of the month that begins at 6:30p. The second Wednesday of the month is Small Group Night. The youth divide into four groups: High School girls, High School guys, Middle School girls, and Middle School guys. In Small Groups, students are led by adult Youth Leaders in a discussion of the sermon from the previous week, and are giuded in applying the lesson to their own lives.

The third Wednesday of the month is a Sermon Night, which flows similarly to a Youth and Parent Night. The following week is another Small Group gathering to debrief the second sermon.

Youth Activities

In addition to Wednesday night meetings, the youth have one or two fun activities per month (themed nights, scavenger hunts, parties, canoe trips, etc.) Check out the LCC Calendar, subscribe to the Youth Newsletter, or follow the LCC Youth Instagram to stay up to date about upcoming events! 


Youth Camp 

Each year the students look forward to Youth Camp. This is always a memorable time for the youth to experience the Lord together, build lasting relationships with one another, and play a lot of messy, crazy games! Camp is typically held during the month of July.

Winter Retreat 

Every year in early January, the youth group takes a weekend retreat to spend some time refocusing and resetting at the start of the new year. 

This year's theme is light. In John 8 Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”. What is Jesus claiming about himself, what is being said about the world, and how do we follow Jesus and walk in the light?

This year at Winter Retreat, we will explore this theme of light that comes up in Scripture. We will learn to not walk in darkness but instead walk in light as we follow Jesus into the new year. We will see what it means to be called children of light. We will see that Jeus is the light of life, as He says in John 8:12, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Join the Youth (grades 6-12) on January 7-9 at Fontainebleau State Park on the North Shore. The retreat will be a good time to refocus and regroup as we head into the new year. As always, we will spend time in God’s Word, in personal devotion, and on teams playing games. We would love to have you join us!
