WLC YOUTH

VISIT US

Liberty Ridge | Oak Hill | Valley Creek

Loved. Saved. Changed.

We want every young person to know they are loved, saved, and changed by Jesus. Ready to follow Him, grow as His disciples, serving and telling others, so that all may know Him as Savior and Lord. 

During this season of physical distancing, here are some ways to stay connected and growing as disciples! 

Join in the all campus WLCYOUTH Summer Bible Study every Wednesday!  
Here is what it looks like:

All campus WLCYOUTH Summer Bible Study on Wednesdays! We gather to share the ups and downs of life, read and discuss scripture, and pray together. This summer we’ll be reading through the book of Psalms, looking at God’s faithfulness in all different kinds of circumstances and the different Psalms that grow out of a wide range of emotions and needs.
Summer Bible study dates:  July 29 and Aug 5.

There are 3 different groups that all meet at 7pm on Wednesdays (in person and via Zoom):

  • Oak Hill Youth (students who’ve completed 5th-12th grades): In person: we'll meet in the lower parking lot
  • Liberty Ridge & Valley Creek Middle School (students who’ve completed 5th-7th grades): In person: meet by the Bridge doors
  • Liberty Ridge & Valley Creek High School (students who’ve completed 8th-12th grades): In person: meet by the circle drive doors

We know that many of us are in different places when it comes to comfort and ability to gather in person or online. We're trying to meet a variety of needs by doing both. We will Zoom the in-person gathering and have small group leaders available online as well as in person. If you're out of town or don't have a ride, the Zoom option is a great way to stay connected. If you're able to gather in person, please come willing to honor social distancing (6ft apart) and boundaries around sharing things. We ask that youth come with a blanket or chair, bug spray, water bottle, and Bible. Bathrooms will only be available for emergencies.  If there is inclement weather, we will move inside and maintain the same protocols. We ask that students bring a mask in case we need to move inside. Thank you for your willingness to work with us as we work through helping as many folks feel welcome and comfortable as we can.   

Please Contact Lindsey or Patrick with any questions.

The Zoom links will be the same links we used during the school year ministry.  Just click on the blue box below that represents you!

WLCYouth Reading Plan: 
To get us rolling in the book of Psalms we are going to spend the summer in Psalms! Here are this weeks readings or check out WLCYOUTH on Facebook and Instagram!  This weeks verses:

Confirmation Journey

Confirmation is a personal faith process for students who are currently in 7th-12th grades, who would like to dive deeper into understanding what they believe and why. Confirmation at Woodbury Lutheran has been designed to be a personal experience that is driven by a student's desire to grow in their understanding of their baptismal faith. At the end of this journey, students publicly confirm and claim their identity as a disciple of Jesus.

Parents

We want to partner with you!  Here are a few great ways to stay connected.

Email Us: (Lindsey - Middle School (All campuses)/ Patrick - High School (All Campuses)/Sarah (Oak Hill Campus)/Laura (Liberty Ridge Campus)) any important info about your young person that will help us care for him/her! (Things we like to know include: any special needs, life changes/concerns, exciting stuff, and the hard stuff.)

Small Group Leaders: Get to know your young person's small group leader, invite them to games, plays, competitions, etc. Invite them out for coffee or dinner. They are a cheerleader for you as well as your young person!
