We believe in discipling youth by walking beside them in all aspects of their lives. Retreats and missions are avenues to grow in knowledge, sharing real life experiences of God at work in and through others. Monthly fellowship events add fun and excitement to our lives together and provide youth with opportunities to celebrate the life that God has given us. Through weekly study we grow spiritually and intellectually. Ultimately, the youth program at GLC is a place for youth to experience God through many different avenues of events and relationships. Join us and bring a friend!


Youth Summer Fun!

Summer Camp at Lake Crescent - August 11th - 16th, 2024. 

Summer Camp 

Meet our Youth Summer Intern... Jamie!

Jamie grew up going to Grace and was a leader in our youth program. He currently attends Pacific Lutheran University! Fun fact: once Jamie drank 4 root beer floats in one sitting at Red Robins. His favorite Bible verse is Psalms 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." We are so thrilled to have you on the team this summer Jamie, thank you for being our intern! We can't wait to see what fun you have in store for our youth during Crazy Wednesdays, Vacation Bible School, and during our weeklong summer camp this August!

 Summer Mission Team (SMT)
The Youth Program at Grace has a long-standing commitment to summer missions, with opportunities to serve in Mexico through the SMT. The program is a year-long commitment that involves working, playing and studying with your fellow mission team members.  Our next scheduled trip will be in June 2024.


Our Youth Program includes a variety of retreat experiences for kids ages 7th-12th grades. Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer…. we make the most of the wonderful outdoors here in the northwest for our retreat weekends!

Some of the retreat sites we visit regularly include Black Lake, Lake Kachess and Camp Lutherhaven. With opportunities to study, worship, and play on retreats, all youth have the chance to grow in their own faith and fellowship with one another.


Watch the Youth Calendar in the Messenger and on this website for monthly activities for all junior and senior high kids! From bus lock-ins to movie nights, there are always opportunities for youth to gather together and share in the fun. These monthly events are a great time to bring a friend — they are always welcome.


Sunday mornings are all about education at GLC! Youth in grades 7-12 meet @ 9:45 am to study the Bible and what it means to our lives today.

Midweek opportunities for study include:
Grades 7-9 meet with the pastors for Confirmation Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 7:30 pm
Grades 10-12 get together for a weekly small group time on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:30 pm
