Youth

Fields of Grace Youth (FOGGY) is a partnership among all the Fields of Grace congregations.

Sunday School:
Sunday School classes are held during September through May at Bernadotte and First Lutheran.

Bernadotte – classes meet during the hour before worship for  4 yr old preschoolers through high school. Class runs from 10:10 until 10:55 and then families are strongly encouraged to worship together at 11:00.
First Lutheran – classes also meet before worship for 4 yr old preschoolers through 9th grade.
Children start S.S., gathering at 10:30 and class runs until 11:10. Worship is at 9:30.
Swan Lake children are welcome for Sunday School at either church.

Vacation Bible School:
Every summer, children have an opportunity to learn about Jesus and our faith in God through music, stories, crafts, and games in vacation Bible School.

First Communion:
Parish children usually prepare for First Communion during fifth grade, through a class with the pastor. Older youth who haven’t yet received Communion instruction are welcome to join the class.

Confirmation:
Confirmation classes help prepare youth to confirm their faith in Jesus Christ through the rite of Affirmation of Baptism. Classes are held Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the parish churches.

Students learn what it means to be a Lutheran, and how to live out their faith as disciples of Jesus in their daily life.

Youth Ministry:
A variety of youth events are offered for youth of all ages– retreats, service projects, and fun activities like ski trips. Friends are often welcome!
