Youth

The youth at University Lutheran Church have found a home in this community of faith where they participate in leading worship, learning more about their religious roots, addressing the challenges of their lives, playing games, and serving people who are in need of compassionate care.  The youth meet weekly on Sunday mornings for Bible study and topical discussions.  They gather at least monthly for fellowship events, the most popular being a quarterly overnight lock-in at the church.  Pizza is always a staple, along with the healthy discussions that build a sense of community among the youth.  The youth also serve as role models and mentors for the younger children in the congregation. 

Each summer, the youth travel to Eastern Washington where they connect with the Hispanic and Native American communities and learn about these cultures of our region.  Every other summer, the youth have an opportunity to travel with a delegation to Tanzania, Africa where they meet with students at the Ailanga Lutheran Junior Seminary as well as religious leaders throughout the Meru Diocese.  Every third summer, the youth participate in the National ELCA Youth Gathering which usually takes place in the southern part of the United States.

Rummage Sale & Pickup

Been trying to decide what to do with those old clothes? What about that piece of furniture that is just taking up space? The Youth and Young Adults (YAYA) would be happy to help. We are having our first annual spring rummage sale in June to support YAYA events throughout the year. We will be collecting donations at church on Sunday mornings beginning in April.  If you have items you wish to donate you can leave them in Dustin’s office.  

Can’t get items to church? No problem, we can pick up items from your house, apartment, barn, or other location on Saturday, May 10 free of charge.   There will be a sign-up sheet on the Youth Board outside the Chapel for anyone requesting a pickup.  Just put your name, what you are donating, and what times would work on May 10.  If you need pickup or have any questions about the sale please contact Dustin Hamren or John Oakley.
