Youth Ministry at Heritage Lutheran

Youth Ministry at Heritage is set up to assist parents in their efforts to promote a distinctively Lutheran identity among the youth and young adults in our congregation.

• Catechize youth through instruction in Christian doctrine and life;

• Sunday morning Bible studies focus on the Large Catechism and other confessional Lutheran studies.

• Involve youth in the mission of the Church to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people.

• Encourage youth service work within our congregation and within the community.

• Encourage attendance at LYA conventions and retreats throughout the synod in order to help youth build relationships with other youth who share the confessional Lutheran worldview.

• Encourage youth to become informed and active members of the ELS.

• Encourage youth to develop an understanding of how they can integrate their vocation with their Lutheran faith.
