Mission Trip 2016 to Niagara Falls, NY
This past summer's mission trip was Lord of Life's second. Ten youth and seven adults spent a week helping folks who have seen a steady decline in their economic situations, due to many factors, including loss of industries.
Future Mission Trip
Our next Mission Trip is expected to occur in the summer of 2019. Past participants said the trips boosted their personal and spiritual growth, and that they enjoyed helping others. The trips provide real insight to the plight of others who may be less fortunate than we are.
Confirmation is a place to explore who you are as a child of God. "Here-we-Stand," is a two-year curriculum that helps effectively prepare our students for Lutheran Confirmation. The curriculum is from Augsburg Fortress, an ELCA Lutheran publisher.
Each week, students experience a connection between the class content and their Affirmation of Baptism. Students also better understand how their faith connects to real life, while the expanded small group material encourages relationship building between the learners and mentors. Solid biblical and theological content also helps connect students with the Lutheran heritage. Video clips, music, and other multimedia resources make the material more approachable for today's young learners.
Upcoming Topics in Class
The year 2017 is important for the Lutheran Church as it celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Every other year we present an in-depth Bible study and for 2017, we begin the year of Luther's Small Catechism, and a year of our church history.
