NOW God Wednesdays – The youth meet each Wednesday and focus on four different themes that rotate throughout the month. Themes include Serve, Worship, Learn and Play.
NOW God does not meet during Christmas Holidays, Lent, and the summer.
Play (games, fun and adventure either at the church or off-site such as indoor rock climbing)
Serve (service projects at the church or in the community such as college student care packages and church property maintenance)
Worship – (using modern worship and a forum for discussion)
Learn (guest speakers talking of issues affecting our youth)
Run For It 5K – To Write Love On Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedication to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. Mandarin Lutheran youth participate in a 5K run held in Melbourne each year with other other ELCA congregations. This year’s event will be held on on April 11. If you’d like to register for the run or make a donation, please click here.
Our team name is “Race For Grace” and the password is “synod.”
Christian Education – During high school Sunday School classes, we explore what Scripture has to say in today’s world coupled with discussion of current events and culture. Classes focus on subjects youth are often coping with but also issues that may also enhance their faith.”
