Youth Activities

Emmanuel Lutheran Teen Ministry is intended for all high school students. You are welcome to join us! The purpose of Emmanuel Lutheran Teen Ministry is to equip high school students in their lives as Christians, as they...

    grow in their relationship with Jesus,
    grow in their knowledge of the Word,
    grow in their relationships with others,
    go out to serve others,
    and reach out with the message of the gospel.

Grow in the Word
The teen Bible study meets on Sunday mornings during the Christian Education hour, from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. in the principal's office. Currently, they are doing a study on the lives and ministries of Elijah and Elisha.
Book, Bible, Text, Literature, Christianity, Old, Study


Grow in Relationships
Every month, the teens of Emmanuel have an opporunity to get together for encouragement and fun with Christian friends. On Sunday, January 16, we went for a hike of Mormon Trail at South Mountain. We were blessed with a beautiful day enjoying God's creation.



Opportunities to Serve
The teen group has had numerous opportunities to serve through the Family Fall Festival, church invitation handouts, and Christmas for Kids. Stay tuned for more opportunities to serve with us.
