Junior High

Welcome to Journey - the youth ministry for 7th and 8th graders at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church! Our goal is to provide you with a safe place where you can be yourself and be accepted, and a place to be encouraged and supported as you continue your “journey” between childhood and young adult. Friends are always welcome to join us for any of the activities!


Our Confirmation Program is for grades 7, 8, and 9 and is held on Wednesday evenings 7:00 to 8:30 pm. We focus on building good relationships through large and small group activities and growing our faith in retreats and rewarding service projects. Our year runs from September through March and registration is always open. To register, fill out a registration form and return it to the church office.

Brunch Bunch

Brunch Bunch is a time on Sunday mornings when junior high and high school youth come together for food, faith, fellowship, and fun. We meet a couple Sunday mornings a month at 11 am in the Youth Room. There are also opportunities to participate in "Faith Visits" at other congregations to learn how other churches experience God. Friends are always welcome!

Youth Retreats





In the Fall (usually the weekend prior to Thanksgiving) we offer a retreat for junior high (grades 7 and 8) youth. Confirmation students are expected to attend, but all 7th and 8th graders are welcome. Our topics include: relationships and tough stuff in the Bible. Please check back here for more information about upcoming youth retreats.                                               

Holy Spirit Lutheran Church is committed to keeping children safe and asks all adult volunteers to attend our Safe Haven Training.
