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.

When the Youth Ministry Group Meets
• Every Sunday the Youth Group meets in the time between early and late services for our weekly bible study. You can find us in the hallway by the south entrance of the building.
• We also have a monthly meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month. At this meeting the group meets for fellowship and we review Christian book resources and plan upcoming events.
