Youth group at St. Paul is a welcoming, laid-back community where you can be yourself, build positive relationships with your peers and adult leaders, and grow in your relationship with Jesus. We know how busy your life gets, so we intentionally schedule time for hanging-out, playing, having fun and the best snacks around! We also offer retreats, service projects, and trips. Most of all, we want to remind you every week that you – just the way you are - are known and deeply loved by God and His people.

Confirmation is a young man or woman’s renewing of their baptismal vows and professing before God and their congregation the faith that has been instilled in them. It is a special time of preparation, study and soul searching in which each student learns about the richness of their God given faith and how to put that faith into action in service to their Lord and others. Confirmation is a wonderful moment and blessing in a child’s life of faith.
The main goal of Confirmation instruction at St. Paul Lutheran is to equip youth to be committed lifelong disciples of Jesus, maturing, strengthening, and broadening the faith that began in Baptism and ends with our entry into heaven.
Confirmation will equip youth to be committed lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ by:
Giving students a strong foundation in the truths of the faith they desire to confess.
Helping students to build a personal relationship with their Lord that goes beyond head knowledge.
Giving opportunities for the student and their family to grow together in faith.
Teaching students how to defend their faith, in a loving way, to a world that is increasingly hostile to Christianity.
Creating chances for the student to build relationships with other Christian young men and women.
Volunteering at Food Bank, serving at the VBS, progressive Christmas dinner, lock-ins, summer camp and the National Youth Gathering are just a few examples of opportunities for youth to grow in Jesus together and be a blessing in the community!
