Youth Ministry

A New Generation of Believers

At King of Glory, we have a collective heart that desires to pass on the Faith to the next generation and obey the call to “GO and make disciples”!

Through worship, social fellowship and biblical studies, we seek to create opportunities for conversation about God and how He is at work in our lives. Our desire is to encourage our youth to walk in a personal relationship with God on a daily basis. We do this by investing in their lives through mentoring and discipleship. Come see what God is doing!

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation at KOG is open to all students seventh grade and up who want to be confirmed in their faith. This program is a fun and interactive way to build students’ faith and friendships. We dive deep into different aspects of the Lutheran faith and how they can apply it to their lives today. Students are asked to participate in community service outside of the church as well as with the group when those opportunities are available. Students that are confirmed, affirm their baptism and are ready to be active members of the church who serve in many different capacities.

GIFT CARDS AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO BENEFIT THE KOG YOUTH

Scrip/gift cards are available to purchase in the Narthex on the first and third Sunday mornings and in the church office during the week. Each company gives us a percentage of their sale price, so nonprofits can sell and make a slight profit off of each card sold at face value. It adds up and the KOG youth have benefited by going to summer camp for many years. Listed below are the regular businesses that we keep on hand. They make great gifts for family and friends or you can buy cards for your regular shopping destinations. Your support is greatly appreciated!
