We have a full program for youth from grades 1 through 12. All of these ages meet for Sunday School on Sunday mornings during our Life Long Learning hour from 9:45 - 10:45 am.
Grades 1-5 all meet together on the second floor of the Education Wing. Throughout the year there are opportunities for these youth to gather together for special events. Fifth graders start preparing for Confirmation class and learn about the role of worship in Christian life.
Grades 6-8 are known as the H2H (Head to Heart) group and meet with the high schoolers on Sundays during the Life Long Learning hour. They also meet bi-monthly on Saturday evenings for catechism class where they study the Old and New Testaments, the life of Jesus, and the small catechism and reformation. In addition, these students meet regularly for fellowship and service projects.
Grades 9-12 are known as the LYC (Lutheran Youth Corps) and meet together with the guidance of an adult mentor, and generally choose the topics they feel will allow them to share and discover ways to strengthen their faith and practice Christian living in the modern world. The high school youth plan regular outings for fun, fellowship, service, and worship. They often attend youth gatherings, including summer mission trips and the ELCA Youth Gathering. They meet in the Youth room on the ground floor of the Education Wing.

The LYC and the H2H groups and their families journey to First Lutheran Church in downtown Dayton on the fourth Sunday of each month to serve breakfast to those who are hungry.
