General Handbook of Guidelines
It's essential that we minister to and with students, giving them the opportunity to grow into faithful disciples of Christ. Much of what we do is connecting students to other age groups and especially to those who are already in position to help them grow in faith. There are also events and programs dedicated to specific age groups. Check them out below!
LIVE OUT LOUD is a program designed to help our junior high students and their families learn to live their lives as a disciple of Jesus. It goes beyond “being confirmed.” We want to challenge students to dig into God’s Word, to spend time with God and get to know him more and live their lives in worship to God, in thanksgiving for all we’ve been given and in service to others. You will hear about LIVE OUT LOUD as our program that prepares students to affirm their baptism (confirmation).
Open Hang! The youth room is open on Wednesday afternoons starting from 3:30-5pm!
Connect: In addition to Live out Loud, Junior High students are invited to participate in their Wednesday evening program Connect. Connect helps students to connect to each other, to God, and their faith to their everyday lives. Connect meets Wednesday nights from 6pm – 7:15pm

St John is active in ministering to and with college students. While we look at college students largely with the same mentality as other young adults, we see that the unique challenges, schedules, and relationships surrounding college life demand a little unique attention. St John partners with Bethlehem Lutheran Church to connect with college students through the Lutheran Student Center on the UNI campus. regular worship, prayer, Bible study, and service opportunities paired with a semiweekly free coffeehouse are helping that community come alive as they grow in faith.
