Resurrection's Youth Ministry offers the youth of our congregation spiritual-based meetings and fun activities ideal for their age groups.

IGNITE (6th-8th grade)

BREAKAWAY (9th-12th grade)

Contact: Jenny Piontek, Youth Director

Our calendar is PACKED for the short month of February! Within our groups this month, we will be looking at the idea of being transformed by God’s will for our lives instead of conformed by the world that surrounds us. Romans 12:2 tells us, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Youth can easily conform to the world around them to “fit in,” however my challenge will be to really look at how God is working to transform their ideas and challenge that “fit in” desire.

Middle School: Please note that with the start of Lent we will not be meeting for Youth Group on Wednesdays starting February 14 (Ash Wednesday). I would love to see you at the Shrove Pancake Supper.

High School: I am in great need of regular Sunday evening adult helpers. Even if you can do it once a month, it really does help! Thanks for considering!

Did you know that we have a Moms Group? It is not just for moms of little kids, it's for moms of all ages and stages. Let’s support each other! Check out the Galentine’s event on February 25 at 5:00 pm. I will be there, and I hope to see some of you!



Sunday Morning

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.

Youth Groups


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.

We meet Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00 pm, in The Warehouse (Room 253) of the Family Life Center.

Service events and Mission Trips

This year, we will be focusing our efforts here at home during the week of Vacation Bible School. Jenny will be working with the High School Leadership Team to work on the details for the week. We are excited for the adventures that unfold right here in our own community! Mark your calendars for VBS and on-site Mission work right here at home - June 24-28, 2024!



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 ( ).
