Youth and Family Ministry is
Youth and Family Ministry is about relationships and service. Youth should have relationships with authentic and caring adults. These relationships need to be maintained both inside and outside the walls of the church. Through these relationships we can raise strong leaders full of talents and gifts that they will be willing to share with the global church. Likewise, we are all called to a life of service. This service will take a variety of shapes and we need to be open to the different forms of service as well as the different locations for service from our front yard to the far reaches of the globe. We received the command to love the children and to teach service from Christ -- and that is something we need to take seriously. Soli deo Gloria!
At King of Glory, all youth, regardless of race, gender, social class, and/or sexual orientation, are welcomed and loved. We are called by Christ to love our neighbors and we do this to the best of our abilities, realizing that we sin daily and need God's grace repeatedly. Come as you are, all are welcome!
Service is growing as a bigger and bigger component of what we do here at King of Glory, especially in our Youth and Family program. We will be looking at ways we can do service as individuals, as friends, and as families. From raking yards to service trips, we are constantly looking for ways we can selflessly serve our neighbors.

We take trips that enhance the ministry at King of Glory. From synod gatherings to trips to camp, from local trips to do service work to summer service trips across the country, we try to plan things locally and further away that work to enhance the programming happening at King of Glory.
