Peace offers a Middle School Youth Group (grades 6-8) and a High School Youth Group (grades 9-12), both of which meet weekly and also participate in Virginia Synod youth events. Our youth are a vital part of Peace and we welcome all to join us!

middle school youth group
The 6th, 7th and 8th graders meet every Monday evening from 6:00-8:00pm to engage in Christian fellowship with each other and mentors, to explore God's word, deepen faith and participate in community service events.
Senior high youth group
The High School Youth gather every Sunday evening from 6:00 - 8:00pm to discover how God is active in all aspects of their life, to grow in His love and enjoy the presence of Christ in their daily life.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Summer 2017 Youth Mission Trip
The 2017 Youth Mission Trip to DC gave our youth time to explore/learn/process/question/strategize/think more about institutional racism and poverty in our society. It was thought-provoking and deeply moving experience.
Gathering and sending are related to one another like breathing in and breathing out. The important thing is therefore to view life in the everyday world as just as important as the gathering of the congregation in the feast of worship.
SUMMER 2016 Youth Service trip
In the summer of 2016, a team of youth and adult leaders traveled to West Virginia to work with Appalachian Service Project, repairing homes in this hard-hit area. We met regularly to prepare and learn home repair skills and put them to good use on our trip.
ELCA NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING -2015
In 2012 Peace Lutheran Church (12 youth and 3 adults) attended the ELCA National Youth Gathering for the first time. It was an amazing experience in New Orleans, La. In July of 2015, 17 youth and 4 adults attended the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit, MI where we experienced God each day via Proclaim story day, Proclaim community day and Proclaim justice day culminating each evening by worshiping God in Ford Field with 30,000 youth from around the nation!
