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 6:30-8:30pm to engage in Christian fellowship, explore God's word via confirmation, deepen faith and participate in community service events.
Senior high youth group
The High School Youth meet every Sunday evening from 6:00 - 8:00pm in an intentional and authentic Christian community to learn how God is active in all aspects of their life, to grow in His love and enjoy Christ's presence in their daily life.

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. They met regularly to prepare and learn home repair skills and put them to good use on their 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!
