Our Youth Ministry is a vibrant part of our church family here at La Crescent UMC. Through Bible study, fellowship, missions trips and service projects, we aim to train young people to be disciples to the La Crescent community and the world.
The Clubhouse ministry consists of two opportunities for growth and learning for ages 4 through grade 4:
Sunday School — meets Sunday mornings during the school year at 8:45 with opening prayer time, announcements and discussion about our monthly offering project. We also introduce a piece of the Bible story that will be shared in our rotation model Sunday School classes.
Clubhouse Kids — meets Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:30-7:30 in the Clubhouse. Join us for more opportunities to grow in faith. Currently, the Clubhouse Kids are doing The Story Bible study, using games, crafts and other activities to engage in the Bible story.
Youth Group Meetings
Middle School Youth Group is held on Wednesday evenings during the summer from 4:00-6:00 pm at the church. Youth in 5th-8th grade are invited to be a part of the middle school group.
Senior High Youth Group for students in 9th-12th grade is held on Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:30.
Confirmation classes are held from September through April. Students typically begin confirmation class in 8th grade and finish in the spring of their 9th grade year. For more information about confirmation, speak to Pastor Greg or Mindy Kearney.
Youth Mission Trips
Just as Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, we too, wash feet! Every summer our youth participate in hands-on mission trips that teach them about serving others in the world and how to share the gospel message with those we meet. There are multiple opportunities for youth in middle school through high school in the summer.
