Idaho Servant Adventures - June 2017
This summer, ten youth and two adults from Peace in Christ will be joining about 80 others at Shoshone Base Camp near Prichard, Idaho for a week of service, learning, and lots of fun!
National Youth Gathering
Held every 3 years, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO.
In 2016, Peace In Christ was blessed to take 40 students and 10 adult chaperones to New Orleans, LA. The theme for this gathering was "In Christ Alone." It was the experience of a lifetime for all those involved. Feel free to ask any of the attendees (pictured below) about the impact of this trip on their lives. If you have a child between 8th-12th grade, speak to Ruth about having them attend the next one in 2019.
The next NYG (National Youth Gathering) is July 11-15, 2019. The most exciting news for us is that the gathering will be in Minneapolis, MN!
The 7th and 8th grade students have been working through the Old Testament. It is great for young people to read God’s Word and hear the Gospel! Come join the group as they learn about God’s love for His people and grow in their understanding of His Word.
The high school students have been using materials from RightNow Media for Bible Studies the past couple months. Come join the group as they dive into more Bible Studies made for High School Youth!
Peace In Christ invites all members to use RightNow Media for Bible Studies and devotions.
Confirmation classes at Peace In Christ involve seventh and eighth grade students in a two-year curriculum. Year one takes students through an in-depth study of Luther’s Small Catechism. Year two features practical lessons dealing with topics such as creationism, the history of Lutherans in America, the origins of the Bible, Islam, abortion, stewardship, Jehovah’s Witnesses, God’s gift of sexuality, and Mormonism. Weekly Confirmation classes are offered from September through April with two identical sessions (3 p.m. and 6 p.m.) held on Wednesdays. Confirmation Sunday is usually the first Sunday in May.
