YOUTH











​​​1 Timothy 4:12 Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, 
but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.




At OSLC, we have a youth organization for all of our Youth in grades 7-12. There is a three pronged emphasis to our youth program, which involves education, service and social activities.

Confirmation


Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. (September thru May) at the East Mesa Campus


While Confirmation is a Lutheran Rite of Passage, it is so much more than that.  What does it mean to be a person of faith in a complex world?  What does it mean to follow Jesus today?  This two year program of instruction for Seventh and Eighth Graders is taught by the Pastors. The Rite of Confirmation is typically held at the 10:00 a.m. Worship Service on Reformation Sunday, which is the last Sunday in October. Thus, the young people go through the Confirmation Program during their seventh and eighth grades and are confirmed in the Fall of their ninth grade.

Youth Group


At OSLC, we have a four pronged program for our youth in grades 7-12. We incorporate worship, education, service and fellowship to form a well rounded faith formation experience.

Youth are servant leaders in our Rotational Sunday School Program, assist in our Nursey or participate in our final morning worship service* by reading, ushering or serving as an acolyte.

Youth group meets the 2nd and 4th Sunday immediately following the final morning worship*. We have devotions, discuss our highs and lows, play games and close with prayer.  Students are to be picked up by  12: 30

Senior high Bible Study meets on the third Sunday of the month immediately following the final morning worship service.  They will meet off site for lunch and to discuss the Bible and how it is   relevant  to their life  today.

 

 



Service Projects


Service projects for the Youth are offered as well. Some of those include; visits to the home bound, serving communion, placing flags in communities for holidays, picking fruit, Feed My Starving Children, as well as various on campus opportunities to assist during church worship.
