Youth Groups & Youth Cafe
Youth activities for junior and senior high youth are planned in cooperation with other Indianapolis Lutheran congregations. Junior High students are in Confirmation classes on Sunday morning. Youth Cafe, a class for grades 9 to 12, meets Sunday mornings at 9:45 on the 3rd floor. Friends are ALWAYS welcome! Volunteers in this ministry can lead Sunday morning classes or host a Youth Group event. Volunteers in this ministry should be adults rather than teens.
Children in grades 4-8 can participate in the children's choir during the school year, with rehearsals on Sunday mornings from 10:45-11:10 in the choir room. This year the group will focus on carols at Christmas time.
Enrichment is another learning opportunity for children from 3-5 years of age. After the Children's Sermon, parents can escort their children to the Enrichment room on the first floor. The children will learn an age-appropriate lesson based on the Lectionary, followed by a song and an activity to enhance the lesson. This session lasts approximately 20 minutes, after which children return to the Sanctuary to continue worship. Volunteers in this ministry serve on a rotating schedule; frequency is based on the number of volunteers. Volunteers can be older teens or adults.
Bethlehemís nursery is open during worship services and education hour. It is staffed by paid child-care providers who will lovingly care for your infant or toddler.
