“To everything there is a season” the writer of Ecclesiastes reminds us. St. James is in a life cycle right now where our youth are younger rather than Middle School and High School age, but that does not stop Youth Ministry, it just has a different form.
St. James provides home materials beginning at birth, called “Splash” that helps parents introduce their little ones to the bible and faith.
St. James provides scholarships for young people to attend a week of bible camp at one of our ELCA Camping ministries in Kansas or Nebraska, and sometimes as far flung as Colorado or Minnesota.
In two year’s time Confirmation will begin again with a new crop of 7th graders, and we’ll get back into a rhythm of youth group and Confirmation Camping.
