Confirmation Camp
For All Incoming Sixth-Graders

July 23 through 26
Joy Ranch

Confirmation Camp provides the opportunity for Wednesday and Sunday School fifth graders to come together for the first time and grow friendships with each other, as well as deepen their relationships with Pr. Sami and OSL Youth Director Elise Hasche, before confirmation begins. This make that transition more comfortable and meaningful this fall. The camp also offers encounters with Jesus in ways that can’t be replicated in the church or home. Come enjoy horseback riding, worship, campfires, games, hanging with the Youth Director, s’mores, swimming in the lake, etc.

Register online at https://mycircuitree.com/LOSD//Registration/EventSelection.aspx?filter=peid|VYYR0mifiFQ%3d. The cost indicated is $375, but OSL happily covers $95 per camper so deposit only $280!

Details are still coming together, but campers will meet at and return to OSL, with OSL providing transportation.

High School

Emerge High School Youth Group

On Wednesday nights during the school year, high schoolers gather to socialize and connect faith to everyday life. Whatever group you find yourself in at high school, at OSL those groups fall away and youth come together as a united community. We meet weekly in the Youth Room from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Ninth-grade students will be required to go to Youth Group during their final weeks of confirmation!
