Our Discipleship ministry is formed by the sense of being called to follow Jesus; to learn his ways. We study the Bible because we believe it is the Word of God. Martin Luther said, “The Bible is the manger that holds the Christ.” Lori Burnett is the leader of this commission.
Preschool children will engage in age-appropriate, Bible-centered activities during the Sunday School hour in the church nursery.
Our Confirmands spend two years of weekly study with Pastor Ralph to learn what it means to call themselves a “Lutheran” Christian. They read the Bible and discuss the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer, Apostles’ Creed and the Ten Commandments. Contact Pastor Ralph if you are interested in this ministry.
Our Junior Youth program strives to help them grow in faith through community. They participate in monthly activities where they grow together in faith through service to our church and community. They also have the opportunity to affirm their baptismal promise of faith through yearly activities such as confirmation camp and conference youth gatherings. Contact Frannie Kirkpatrick if you are interested in this ministry.
This group provides relationship building and faith strengthening opportunities while equipping youth to continue their journey of discipleship. Senior Youth participate in the 2nd & 4th Sunday monthly fellowship activity. This year the Senior Youth turn their attention towards Summer service camp WOW Urban Ministry & faith development AFFIRM. Contact Kristi Shedden if you are interested in this ministry.

Via de Cristo
Via de Cristo is a Spanish phrase meaning “Way of Christ.” Peace Uses this structured weekend retreat as a beginning step to a new life in Christ. Through this retreat, those who choose to attend are strengthened and renewed in Christian faith to be strong leaders in the Church. The Via de Cristo is all about a new awareness of living in God’s grace. The weekends are led by lay people and supervised by clergy. Christians of all denominations are welcome. Out of these weekends comes our small group ministry. These groups are meant to help and encourage a continued closer walk with Christ through the study of God’s word, service to others in Christ’s name, and a vibrant worship life.
