Connecting Students to Jesus

In Student Ministry, we seek to connect students from 5th - 12th grade to the extraordinary life found in Jesus, through ministry designed for their specific age group. Student Ministry at Faith offers: Fusion 56, The Landing, Worship Arts, Confirmation, First Communion Instruction, and student mission trips. These ministries have unique dynamics, ranging from creative games to awesome worship; along with teaching God’s Word and opportunities for large and small group discussion. The consistent thread for the students is showing them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus who makes disciples wherever they live, work, and play.

Mission
Colorado 2017


This summer a Faith Student Ministry mission team traveled to Lutheran Valley Retreat in Florissant, Colorado. The team served the camp by completing maintenance projects that included repairing fence posts and replacing the seating of the outdoor worship chapel.

The Landing is a gathering of 7th - 12th grade students who come together to eat, play games, hang out with friends, worship and hear God’s Word. The Landing meets every other Sunday in the Hangar at Faith - Oakville from 6 - 8 p.m.  *After Labor Day, the Landing will start meeting every Sunday. The focus will then alternate every other week, with the first week focusing on Student Life Groups and the next on worship. During the week of Student Life Groups there will be a meal, games, a student band, and small groups. On Sundays with worship, there will be a service and team-building games, but no meal. There are also special events held throughout the year. Come check it out and bring a friend!

Sundays*, 9:15 a.m. - 10:20 a.m.

*Currently on summer break. Will resume September 10.

All 5th and 6th grade students are welcome to join us at Fusion 56 where they will have the opportunity to connect with other students while learning about their faith. Each week we have fantastic worship, games, and talk before we move into small groups. In these groups, we FUSE God's word with each student's life.

Communion
Instruction Class

September 17 | 4 - 7 p.m.
Food Court at Faith - Oakville
Includes dinner at 5:30 p.m.



At Faith students 6th grade and up have the opportunity to begin partaking in Holy Communion. As a congregation, we have separated Communion from Confirmation and given our students a choice to be instructed and take Communion earlier. We view this as an early entry into Student Starting Point, our Confirmation process. We expect students to enroll in Student Starting Point following the Communion Instruction class. At least one parent and their student(s) must attend one of these classes.

Student Starting Point is offered to all 7th – 8th grade students. This community will cover the basics of our Christian faith as understood by Lutherans. It will be offered as often as we have 12 - 20 students signed up. This will allow parents, along with their child, to decide when they will commit to the process. Very simply, we believe these changes hold true to the purpose of Confirmation; to affirm the faith that is given in baptism, while at the same time creating new opportunities for us to reach our current students and new students from our community.
