Faith Lutheran is invested in the lives of its youngest members, and believes faith formation is important as we grow and develop. This is true not just for young kids who go to Sunday School, or middle and high school youth who attend youth group and confirmation, but also for those in college and beyond. That's why this important ministry is called "First Third of Life": Faith Lutheran strives in this ministry to engage with folks ages 0-39.
With our youngest kids, we offer Sunday School, during which we sing, pray, do art projects, and learn about God together with our Director of Family Life, Dani Vogel. Our Children’s Worship Area is a welcoming area where our kids can be a part of worship in their own meaningful ways. Students also enjoy activities like the annual Easter egg hunt, disc golf, Christmas and Advent projects, and the Ash Wednesday Carnival. We also organize outreach projects like Camp Noah, a national program built for children who experience trauma following a natural disaster.
Our youth group consists of middle and high schoolers. We do everything from hiking to swimming to rock climbing to scavenger hunts to snowshoeing at Lassen to venturing through haunted corn mazes. We are always looking for new and exciting things to do, and want to invite others to join our group!
Faith Lutheran wants to welcome our college student and young adult visitors and members to be a part of young adult ministry at our church. Beyond attending our worship services, we invite you to attend young adult programming twice a month. Additionally, we want you to be a part of our intergenerational events as well as church retreats and outdoor activities. We are excited to have you here with us!
Intergenerational events at Faith are for everyone - - kids, teens, and adults of all ages. From hiking at Bald Rock to Snowshoeing at Lassen; to learning about wilderness survival to creek swims, we always manage to think up ways to get together and explore Butte County!
