A series of classes and group functions where our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade youth grow in understanding and living out their identity as baptized children of God. We want our students to not only know what they believe, but also why they believe in the Christian faith. We also want to connect our students to Christian mentors who can serve as a source of encouragement and prayer throughout their faith journey. Confirmation leads not to graduation, but full participation as a member of the Lord of Life family. The groups are designated by grade.
This is our ministry to junior high and high school students and their families. We want our youth to grow in their relationship with Him as well as other believers.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." - Hebrews 10:24-25
On Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:45 and from September to Easter, our high school students gather together ~ usually at the church ~ to pause in our week and reconnect with God and each other. We hang out together, share food, and talk about our week. Hopefully you'll join us! Sometimes we meet for a service project, so be sure to check our Events Calendar HERE.
SERVICE AND MISSIONS
IMPACT gives back locally and regionally by participating in acts of service. Some Wednesday nights and some weekends are spent in local service and at least one week a year in regional service. Be sure to ask how you can be involved. If you cannot attend but would like to help, we have fundraisers to defray some of the costs. If you ever have a financial concern to prevent attending, please let us know privately as we may have scholarships available!
Our 4th, 5th, & 6th graders follow Jesus and on Wednesday nights do Lights, Camera, and Action Bible Dramas!
January 13, 2019 was our first game day of the year! Our calendar is filling up with opportunities to be in fellowship with other group members!

CIRCLE CITY RELIEF
On March 10, 2019, several families based in the youth group at Lord of Life Lutheran Church participated in Circle City Relief ministry. They brought donations of clothing from our church family, fed people, gave out groceries, loved on kids, & prayed with people! This was a blessing for those in need, but also for the participants from our church.
This organization exists to reveal Jesus Christ to a struggling world through Engagement, provision of Resources, and Evangelism.
We were able to live our Matthew 25:40: 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
Thanks to all who gave their time today to be His hands and feet!!
**For anyone wanting to volunteer in the future, click HERE. They are out there every Sunday!!!
From their website: "Many in Indianapolis go without food, a place to call home or a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is our desire to seek them out, provide food and clothing, engage with them and get to know them so we can provide and connect them to resources that could change the trajectory of their lives while sharing the hope there is in Jesus Christ because Jesus changes everything!"
