Welcome to Student’s Ministry of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church. We have the joy of walking with families of youth from grades 5th-12th by providing fun and educational opportunities for them to nurture their faith and grow in understanding of the Gospel. Our Ministries vary from Confirmation, High School Youth Group, Retreats, Mission Projects, and much more. We want your youth to walk away remembering that Jesus loves them, is always there for them, helping guide them, and is a firm foundation to stand upon. Feel free to check out these ministry opportunities below. For more information on Confirmation (5th-8th grade) contact Pastor Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-757-5722. For our JR High Events (5th-8th grade) & High School Ministry (9th -12th grade) contact Jessica Tibben, Director of Family Life at email@example.com or 920-757-5722.

We want you to continue to grow in your faith outside of Confirmation by providing fun activities and events to help you grow in community and nurture your faith in Jesus Christ. We have two special retreats to Camp Luther each year – in the Fall and in the Winter! Camp is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and God’s creation, while growing in your faith! We travel to Camp Luther in Three Lakes, WI for a weekend filled with fun activities and faith growth. For more information on these two events contact Jessica Tibben, Director of Family Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-757-5722.

Youth Group [noun] a place to make lasting friendships and grow in your love for God! Join us every Wednesday – Sept. – May from 6-8pm as we grow in a community together with friends, food, games, a diving into God’s Word! We create memories, we laugh, and most importantly we spend time investing in each other and walking alongside one another in Christ. We would love to have any high school student join us regardless of where, when, or if you worship! We hope to see you there!
During the Summer, we like to keep the fun going still at same time 6-8pm but some changes of location! We provide every other week bible studies around a warm fire (weather permitting) and great company at Shepherd of the Hills. On the odd weeks, we participate in various events and activities off-site of Shepherd of the Hills. We would love for you to join us for all the fun – whether you can make it each week or one time. We are sure to leave you with some of the best memories of your summer!
