Summer Stretch is an incredible experience for those entering grades 6-9 to perform community service projects in the morning and have fun in the afternoon. We will be stretched to meet Christ in many ways, through making new friends and helping the community, all while having a lot of fun! We gather at Nativity at 8:45 a.m. and return by 4:30 p.m. concluding with a trip to Valley Fair.

July 20 – 24, 2020

Cost: $150 per student/$250 sibling rate (Scholarships available if needed)

Contact Heather Anderson with questions.

Summer Service and Learning Youth Trips

On a Service & Learning Trip, we serve and we learn. We come into a community to serve with our brothers and sisters in that community; not to do something new, but to participate in the beautiful and unique ministries that are already happening there. We come into a community to learn from our brothers and sisters in that community; to learn about history, cultures, and context and to engage in relationship building. On these trips, we are proud to partner with Serve Boldly; a young and growing church youth trip non-profit with roots in the ELCA. Check out their website:

Peer Ministry Leadership 7th -12th grade

Our group meets on the third Sunday of each month from 12-2 PM in Fellowship Hall, where we connect, play a game or two, have a Bible study, learn and practice skills to help us create beloved community and care for each other. Each of these meetings also includes lunch. Life is crazy busy for some of us – this is not intended to add another item on your to-do list, but rather to give you an opportunity to be a part of the community in a new way. Come when you can, no pressure here!

Sounds fun! How can I find out more? Simple, email She’ll get you set up!
