Welcome!  We are glad you are here! We have so much for you to see, do, hear and be a part of.  We know that without you we would not be the same.  We offer ministry for all ages, recognize that families come in all forms, and that we all need a place to call home.  We offer space and community for you to explore and grow in faith through fun and meaningful ways. Join us, we've been expecting you! Feel free to contact our Director of Youth and Family Ministry Tyler Bublitz to get connected or to get more information.

Physically Distant, Spiritually Connected

First Youth and Young Adults

First Lutheran Middle School Youth

Wednesday 7:45pm-9:00pm September through May


A group ever growing and ever changing to work on learning what it means to be in a relationship with Jesus.  We come as we are to serve as the hands and feet, study and hear the word of God and to be who we were created to be in community and as individuals.   We welcome EVERYONE to our weekly meetings and special events.  We say its fun but know its so much more than that!

High School 

1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month 7:45-8:30 (6th-8th) September-May


A group with that tries on having fun while starting to wrestle with the bigger questions of faith. They participate in larger church activities while also having unique experiences that guide them on their Christian journey.

Youth Stock:

Youth Stock is our yearly, grace-based fundraiser for all of our youth and family activities, scholarships and trips. This is an opportunity for our Church community to come together and support the youth and family ministries of the church.  Thank you for giving!

We could not do what we do with out YOU! The board of youth and families is always looking for a few good men and women to join our board, be a small group leader, youth group leader or assist with special events.  Your prayers and support are always appreciated.
