BREAKAWAY (9th-12th grade)

Sunday Morning

IGNITE was not able to meet in person for Sunday School, but we did offer a class via Zoom on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. The lessons will remain available throughout the summer on the Sunday School for Kids webpage. Contact the church office for the password. We look forward to seeing everyone in person again when Sunday School kicks off in September.

For children, 5th-8th grade, join us as we learn about God’s big story with Becky, Todd, and friends as they explore and retell stories from the Bible. We’ll dive into the Bible to see and explore Biblical themes through animated videos and hands-on activities.

Youth Groups

IGNITE gets together once or twice per month for on/off campus activities for youth group fellowship throughout the school year.

IMPORTANT: Our health forms/rules of conduct forms are now online. All youth will need to fill out/sign the forms to participate in any IGNITE or RLC Youth event. If you have any questions, please let me know.


Thank you, Ignite Saturday Morning Crew!

Cameron, Savannah, and Mary spent the morning hauling over 1,300 lbs. of sand for the RLP sandboxes. They also pulled weeds and raked mulch to get the playground ready for preschool summer camps.

 

We had a great time Friday night!


Welcome back to The Warehouse night... it was great to get back in and hang out together in our youth space.


I know a lot of the youth are you looking forward to the end of the school year and the start of summer. Since we do not have mission trips or retreats this  summer, Ignite will continue with events throughout the summer. Keep an eye out for events and service opportunities.

Here is what is coming up...

Friday, June 18 - School Is Out NERF Battle - 6:30-8:00 pm - Family Life Center Gym
All Nerf gear will be supplied. Limited to 20, so sign up using this link. Covid protocol will be followed (mask must be worn...no exceptions). Remember to bring a full water bottle. signupgenius.com/go/20F0F4FA4A62C7-school


Looking ahead,
please save your clear 2-liter plastic soda bottles. We will be using them for an event the end of June. Bottles can be dropped off at any Ignite event, church office, or leave them in the marked bin under the coat rack in main church or in marked bin outside Family Life Center gym. I would love to have 15. Thanks!


All participating youth must have a completed 2020/2021 health form (link below) and a signed Covid release prior to the event.

CONFIRMATION

This year, Confirmation is designed for families of 7th-8th grade students. Young people at this stage learn, develop, and take ownership the professions of their faith. It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation promotes the lifestyle of following Jesus.

Sunday, May 2 ~ Confirmation Sunday

For Service

Acolytes

Acolytes are not needed at this time.

Ronald McDonald House Soda Can Tabs

The Ignite youth group is collecting soda can tabs to donate to the local Ronald McDonald Houses. Collection containers are in the kitchen, church office, and the warehouse.

 

SCRIP

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 mindset 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.

Our next LCMS National Youth Gathering (NYG) is less than 2 years away! This is a great way to earn the money now and have little to no expense later. Just to give you an idea, our 2019 NYG trip cost $1,400 per person to go to Minnesota. Are you ready to make that first payment in August 2021?

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 ( ).
