Our group has 15 members in it, ranging in age from 13-17. Our members learn about their faith, how their faith affects their daily lives and how to help others less fortunate than themselves. We have donated items to those in need at Christmas by working with Operation Christmas Child, fed the hungry at the Salvation Army, volunteered at the Northampton Food Bank and Parkland Cares Food Pantry, held clothing drives, and volunteered at the Miracle League. Youth Group members become leaders and teachers at our Vacation Bible School. Over the last 9 years, we have attended the ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans, Detroit, and most recently Houston. We look forward to traveling to Minneapolis in 2022.

The youth group’s clothing drive has been TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED!  Please do not bring in any more bags of clothes until further notice.  Due to the pandemic, the company is temporarily not accepting items.  We are hopeful that this will be resolved by May, but until we hear from the company, we are suspending the drive.

To order nut rolls or to have a gift card order form mailed to you, call  Lisa at 610-262-4053.  Concerned about COVID?  We will work with you to make sure you can pick up these items safely.

Thank you for your support of the youth group.   

Stay safe.
