Connecting Students to Jesus

In Student Ministry, we seek to connect 5th - 12th grade students to the extraordinary life found in Jesus, through ministry designed for their specific age group. Student Ministry at Faith offers: Fusion 56, The Landing, 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.

This will be a weekend you’ll never forget! We’re headed to Lake Williamson Christian Center in Carlinville, IL for a weekend of fun, worship, old & new friendships, and a whole lot of surprises! While this is required for Student Starting Point classes occurring this year, we encourage all of our 7 -12th grade students to join us and even bring a friend along. This weekend will only cost $99 per student! Register now!



Faith's Student Ministry seeks to strengthen student's gospel-centered foundation through learning and studying the Word of God. We further hope to help students grow in a deeper relationship with each other, ministry leaders and volunteers, and God. Each student gathering slightly differs at each campus, but they all have the same mission.

We offer FUSION 56 for all 5th and 6th grade students each Sunday during specific worship times. These students will have the opportunity to connect with other students while learning about their faith through fantastic worship, games, and discussion. We hope to FUSE God's word with each student's life.



7th - 12th grade students from both campuses have the opportunity to join The Landing Sunday evenings from 6 - 8 p.m. in the Hangar at Faith - Oakville. Students can come together to eat, play games, hang out with friends, worship, and hear God's Word. The focus of each Sunday alternates each week, with the first week focusing on Student Life Groups and the next on worship. There are also special events held throughout the year. Come check it out and bring a friend!



Faith seeks to build and strengthen all student's Gospel knowledge and to help with their spiritual maturity. This includes preparing them to partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Class availabilty and schedule between campuses may vary.

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.
