Augsburg’s Youth Grow in Faith Through Education, Service, Fellowship and More

Middle and High school youth groups meet on most Sunday evenings for a meal followed by a program. Programs run the gamut from life choices, to bible study, to outreach activities, to fun group-building.

Senior youth attend the ELCA national youth event which occurs every three years (next one is 2021). On in-between years, Senior Youth make service oriented mission trips to regional destinations. Middle school students take mission trips every year.

Youth are invited to participate in choir

Lobchor (pronounced “lobe-core”) is the youth choir. Lobchor helps to lead worship with musical offerings monthly. The Lobchor group meets Sunday afternoons during the school year.

Faith Formation includes Confirmation

Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade go through Confirmation classes with the Pastors and volunteers. Classes take place during the Youth Group time the first Sunday of the month throughout the school year. Confirmation is currently using the CoLABorate curriculum.

Confirmation Includes Campfirmation

Students spend one week at Lutheridge with Confirmation leaders for Karios Camp strengthening their faith and understanding of God’s love. Confirmands are expected to attend at least one time, however can attend Karios camp more than once, if they would like.

Program Support

Youth ministries at Augsburg receive programming support from the staff, and the Youth Ministry Committee and nearly twenty youth advisers. Adult members volunteer their time and skills as advisers to both groups. Parents of youth participate as chaperons as needed and provide the evening meals.
