Youth

Experiencing It All

Just as getting ready to travel means stuffing your dufflebag with a toothbrush and a bar of soap, so discovering all the adventures on this journey of life requires preparation. Redeemer youth activities are intentionally designed to help middle school and high school students gain an understanding of God’s amazing love for us and his plan that we follow and serve Jesus. 

The big picture:

  • Teaching and Training | Confirmation, Sunday classes, Bible studies, Youth Training Conferences
  • Service and Mission | Mission trips, Rake and Run, Second Harvest, Salvation Army bell ringing, Feed My Starving Children, children’s programming volunteers, Bible School volunteers
  • Fellowship and Community | Vikings parties, bonfires, softball, movie nights, Sonshine
  • Prayer and Worship | Youth Prayer Room, Neighborhood Prayer Walks, 30-Hour Famine
  • Big Events | Winter Retreat, Covenant Pines Bible Camp, CHIC, MUUUCE

If you’d like to chat about youth activities at Redeemer, contact the Director of Children, Youth & Family Ministry Ms. Amy Long.

MUUUCE stands for “The Most Unbelievable, Ultimate, Urban, Camping Experience.” This event is a great way to welcome students into our youth program as they transition from Redeemer Kids. This high-energy, fast-moving, multi-day event is designed to give middle schoolers and junior highers a chance to connect with Christ and their peers. It is a 3-day, 2-night epic middle school retreat hosted at Crossroads Covenant Church in Woodbury for students in the Northwest Conference, and includes a speaker, high-impact worship and a trip to Valleyfair!

Cost is $125. (Sign up with Kae Lance to participate in the Car Wash sale to help with the cost.) Registration forms are now in your family boxes and on the youth bulletin board.
