Ongoing Ministry Opportunities

First Lutheran offers many opportunities for students grades 6-12 to get involved. These opportunities allow youth to build a relationship with God, grow in faith, create lasting friendships, serve the Lord and, of course, HAVE FUN! 

Noisy Offering – Youth pass through the congregation with metal buckets to collect loose change.  Each of the buckets are then dumped into a larger metal bucket to create “noise”. The offering is used to support local missions including the blessing boxes.

Youth Skits – All ages – 3-5 minute skits are performed on the second Sunday.  Skits can be comedic or serious in nature but will always bring a truthful message. No theatre training is required to participate.

Blessing Boxes – All Ages – Youth fill 3 blessing boxes in Findlay with food that is either donated or purchased through available funds. The boxes are filled at least once every three months.

Cherub Bells – Ages pre-school -5th Grade are learning to play bells using color coding.  Miriam Gibson is leading this group.  Performances are periodic throughout the year.

Cards for Shut-ins – Ages 4- 5th Grade make cards for delivery to our homebound members on special holidays.

Music – Youth of all ages can share their musical talents with special music during the summer, Christmas Eve or during regular worship services.

Worship – Youth are encouraged to participate in the worship service either as greeters, ushers or lectors.

Confirmation is a three-year commitment for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to meet with our Senior Pastor to discuss Lutheran Theology including: Martin Luther, Creeds, Prayers, Old and New Testament and many more. This is a time for students to acknowledge their baptism through an Affirmation of Faith. During each class students read from the Bible, discuss a topic, put on a skit, quiz show and other connecting activities. 

The youth of First Lutheran have Had many events throughout the years.

Including Junior High/Senior High Lock-In’s, service projects, mission trips and other outings.
