The youth ministry program offers a variety of opportunities for youth in middle school and high school (6th-12th grades). Confirmation is only one component of what we offer which also includes discussion, social, and outreach/community service. All youth of any race, gender, or sexual identity are welcome whether they are sure of their faith or questioning, lifelong church attenders or new to the experience.


EPIC Confirmation preparation is done jointly with 4 other ELCA churches in the middle school years. Classes meet Wednesdays from 5:15-7:15 PM (at Trinity Lutheran - dinner included) and are led by pastors and youth ministers from the participating churches. Youth choose when they want to celebrate Confirmation after completing the program. To register click here: Confirmation Registration 2023-2024.

Youth Meetings

High school youth meet on Wednesdays from 7-8 PM for a casual discussion time on various topics.  

Service Opportunities

In keeping with the strong sense of service and outreach that defines Advent, youth are given the opportunity to engage in group service activities on a monthly basis. Often these activities connect with ongoing outreach efforts at Advent. Youth are also encouraged to pursue individual ways to serve the Advent and/or larger community.
