The 7th – 8th Grade Youth Group activities are coordinated with the confirmation program and will usually include a couple of field trips and one lock-in each year.
The 9th – 12th Grade Youth Group meets monthly to share a meal, worship, and study and do an activity. In addition to the monthly gathering the group will plan special activities through out the year. Fundraisers for the group include serving Refreshments on Sunday mornings, the Spring Talent Show and Pie Auction and Suppers for Ash Wednesday, Midweek Lent. Each year the group chooses a special outreach project. The group provides opportunity to attend the Annual Fall South Central Synod Youth Convo as well as the ELCA’s National Youth Gathering which is held every three years.
Education at Saint Peter
Sunday School – Sunday School is an opportunity for Pre-K (4 yr.) through High School age children to meet on Sunday morning from 9:15-10:15 during the regular school year.
Vacation Bible School – Every summer for four days (usually in the beginning of summer break) the church transforms into a magical place where kids get to learn all about the wonder of God. Hands on activities, games, music, snacks and more, VBS has it all!
Youth Confirmation – Children in grades 7 & 8 attend Confirmation Classes on Wednesday evenings. These classes meet in two “blocks,” with a break for the Christmas holidays. Ninth graders affirm their baptism through the Rite of Confirmation on the 3rd Sunday in October at the 10:30 service.
Communion Study Classes – Fifth graders attend a class on Holy Communion prior to Lent (usually in January and February). This class culminates with the students taking communion on Ash Wednesday.
