Youth Ministry


Youth comes but once in a lifetime

Youth Ministry serves youth ages sixth grade through twelfth grade. Programs include Sunday school for high school youth and confirmation for middle school youth, both offered at 10:00. There is time for fellowship each Sunday to build friendships at church.

Our high school classes study relevant topics and how the Bible can be applied to a youth’s daily life situations.

The middle school students examine a three-year, in-depth Bible study for confirmation. We spend a year with the Old Testament, one year in the New Testament, and the third year studying Luther’s Small Catechism. The confirmation program is an environment perfect for fostering close friend relationships. At the end of the three-year confirmation program, the eighth-grade youth are confirmed and become voting members of the church.


There are many fellowship and service opportunities for all youth throughout the year. Christ the Lord hosts events for youth on Sunday afternoons at various times during the school the year. These may include service work in the community or fellowship activities such as game days or bowling. We provide an opportunity for week long day camps during the summer. Preteen and Teen Servant Camps have youth volunteering in the community during the mornings and engaging in fellowship activities and Bible study in the afternoons. Youth are encouraged to serve as volunteers at children’s programs throughout the year at church, such as Vacation Bible school and the Easter Egg Hunt.

Youth have the opportunity to participate in programs with youth from other local churches, neighboring states, and even a nationwide gathering every three years. These programs are the All Georgia Youth Gathering weekend and Affirm week-long summer camp for youth sixth through twelfth grade . The Southeastern Synod Lutheran Youth Organization (SESLYO) leadership weekend and ELCA Youth Gathering are designed for our high school students. There is something for all our youth at Christ the Lord.
