Youth Ministry
Rooted in Knowing, Growing, and Going
Rooted is the Youth Ministry for 6th-12th grade students here at Abiding Savior Free Lutheran.

Our aim is to assist parents as they disciple their children for life-long faith.


The Gathering (6th-12th grade) meets on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:45pm, and is a great opportunity for students to study God's Word and build relationships with their peers and leaders. At The Gathering, we sing together, learn together, discuss together, pray together, and play together. Snacks and free-time provided after until 8:30pm.

We will continue to meet during the summer, starting May 16th, 2018. Although the format will change. Please sign up for Youth Announcements if you'd like to stay up to date with what we are studying and what activities we will be doing.

Confirmation (for anyone... but most start in 6th grade). A three year program to learn what it is we believe at Abiding Savior, and why. We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45, and, over the course of three years, students will study the Old and New Testaments, the 10 Commandments, The Apostles Creed, The Lord's Prayer, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper. For more information about Confirmation, head over to Confirmation Central.

Equipping (designed for High Schoolers and Adults) to continue to study and grow as a believer. These classes are offered on Sunday mornings, and cover a wide range of topics, including exegetical study, apologetics, christian living, and more. To see what classes are offered, head over to the Equipping Classes page.

Life Groups (for anyone). We are designed for relationships. We are called to be in community. As a church who has a passion for not just making disciples, but helping people grow deeper in their faith, we believe that Life Groups are the best way to build and deepen relationships. Visit the Life Group page here.

If you'd like to come and visit any of these opportunities for youth, we'd love to have you! Fill out the form at the bottom of the page, and the Youth Director will get back to you with specific information, like dates and times.


Over the course of the year, there are dozens of events available to our youth to help them connect with their peers as well as other adults and children from our congregation, and to grow in faith and love. Some of the events we have include: service projects, retreats, lock-ins, game days, camps, campfires, snowboarding, and many others. 

For the safety of our students, we do not have details for Youth Events posted on this webpage for public view. If you are looking for Event info, please contact the Youth Director (you can use the form at the bottom of this page).
