Middle School Ministry
Events are often included under the structure of confirmation
The Pastor, Confirmation Guides and the Director of Youth Ministry implement this ministry. Events are included under the structure of confirmation using the guides as support. Participation in confirmation events is not limited to enrollment in confirmation however, certain events have a stronger education influences than others.
Whirlyball on February 24th For MS and HS youth…back by popular demand and because it is a crazy good time! We have spots for 15 to play Whirlyball (a game in bumper cars, kinda like lacrosse and basketball). No specific skill necessary other than being willing to have fun. We will leave St. Luke’s at 5:30pm and back by 8:30pm. The cost will be $15 and worth every penny. Bring a friend!
The sign-up date for Wilderness Ranch is February 27th. For MS and HS youth…We are going to the ranch in Alberta, BC on July 7-14th. In all my years of ministry, I would say that this experience is a very unique and something every youth should experience. It is a camp week that includes riding horses but it is so much more. The
cost will be $450. Jesus shows up. I hope your schedule will be free to experience it. Friends are welcome.
