Senior High Youth
There are a number of opportunities for high school youth to become involved in the church and youth program. Every Tuesday night we meet for youth group (BLAZE) and there are a number of retreats, mission trips and offsite activities to take part in. Every summer we go on a Mission Trip as well as a trip to Harvest Farm in Wellington, Colorado to do service work. In the winter we usually head up to the mountains to go skiing and snowboarding for the weekend. Fundraisers are ongoing throughout the year to help support Youth Ministry and make Mission Trips possible.
BLAZE meets on Tuesday nights from 7-8:30pm in the youth room here at Christ Lutheran Church. It is a time of fun, fellowship and learning. We often have music, a Bible study and time for prayer. Once a month we will go offsite. On those nights please meet at the church at 6:45pm so that we can be back as close to 8:30 as possible.
Typically the second Tuesday of the month is when we go offsite or do something "special". The other weeks you can plan on meeting in the youth room at 7pm.
