Join us for Sunday School from 9:30-10:30 am!
Sunday School for children and youth, preschool-high school, runs September through May from 9:30-10:30 am in the Family Life Center.
Connection Café for 6th-12th Grade is led by Jenny Piontek in The Warehouse (Room 253), Family Life Center. This year, we will rediscover and look in a new way at some “classic” bible stories.
IGNITE gets together once or twice per month for on/off campus activities for youth group fellowship throughout the school year.
Middle school students (6th-8th grade) are in an important stage of faith building. The goal of Ignite is to spark that faith flame and watch it grow! We will have fun, ask questions, build our team and group up, learn, serve, engage, grow and take that faith spark out into our homes, church, families and community.
This is a private page that you must sign up for with Ms. Jenny. We will utilize this page to send out last minute information, direct messages, or pictures of events. This format is open to youth (who have cell phones and permission) and Ignite parents. Just contact Ms. Jenny with cell phone numbers to add.
No Warehouse Wednesdays during Lent! From 6:00-6:30 pm every Wednesday (after Lent), all 6th-8th graders can come, play, and hang out. Those in Confirmation, 7th and 8th grade, will be released to their appropriate classes with Pastor Zach and Pastor Alan from 6:30-7:30 pm.
This is youth group. Each month, we will have one large youth group event for all 6th-8th graders on Sunday afternoons. There will be a theme to each event, and we will get to know each other, play some games, and make some memories. Next Ignite Youth Group is Sunday, March 12 from 1:00-2:30 pm.
Servant events will be offered to the Ignite group on a monthly basis. Our next service event is the EASTER EGG HUNT on Sunday, March 26 from 2:00-4:30 pm.
I look forward to another year and another opportunity for the youth to get connected and continue on their faith walk.

Here’s where to find all of the information from Breakaway High School Youth Ministry:
I try to do lots of different forms of communication, so choose whichever works best for you. The best part is when youth hit high school, they can be responsible for knowing as well. There is a GroupMe just for them, so they know what is going on.
- GroupMe - This is our main source of communication for both youth and parents.
There is a Breakaway Parents page and a Breakaway Youth page. I recommend at least one parent be a part of the Parents page.
- Student Ministry information is included in our monthly newsletters and upcoming events in the weekly announcements.
- Instagram - @rlcbreakaway
Please take a moment to fill out new health and participation forms for this year: forms.gle/NbAdPhSzNPWXSDJUA
We are trying to rebuild our adult leader pool in all areas. If you have any desire at all to be active in any part of Youth Ministry, let’s have a conversation! I would love to have you as part of the team, and we NEED you!
I look forward to another year and another opportunity for the youth to get connected and continue on their faith walk. I am available to you through email (
), Instagram (@rlcbreakaway), GroupMe, or text/phone (check RCB).

Youth Confirmation at RLC is a 2-year program that traditionally begins ("Confirmation 1") at Grade 7 and finishes at the end of Grade 8 ("Confirmation 2"). If you are interested in Confirmation, reach out to Pastor Jonathan at .
LEARN MORE about our Confirmation program.
SCRIP is a gift card buying program that allows families to earn money through the purchasing of gift cards or e-cards. You just need to change your mind set a bit! When you plan to go shopping for the things you are already going to buy (groceries, Amazon, home improvements, etc.), purchase a gift card or e-card first through Scrip and then shop. You earn a percentage of the gift card/e-card purchase for your youth's account. This money adds up fast and can be used as payments towards NYG, camps, events, etc.
Don’t have any youth, but still want to help out? You CAN!
You can direct your earned rewards to the church’s love fund, RLS, RLP, RLC Youth, or designate one youth’s family. SCRIP is an easy way to help out with Resurrection Lutheran youth programs.
If you are interested in joining SCRIP or finding out more information, please contact Jenny Piontek ( ).

Last middle school mission trip was June 26-July 1, 2022 in Rutherford County, NC (Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains). This in-state opportunity was such a blessing for youth, adult leaders, and the NC community we served.
We had a Youth Gathering presentation in September. It was a great way to start the year by hearing the stories and experiences in our own words. In case you missed it, here is the video that was shown:
