Connecting Kids to God and Each Other

Junior High Alive is a way for 7th and 8th graders to enjoy fun events, participate in important service opportunities, and enjoy fellowship with peers and mentors.  Junior High Alive activities include retreats, social events, Sunday Serve, Adopt-a-Grandparent, and other service opportunities. JHA events often coordinate with Confirmation or choir activities.

Adopt-A-Grandparent Schedule

Adopt-a-Grandparent (AGP) is a junior high service project for 7th & 8th Grade Confirmation students.  Every other Monday we meet at the Mount Olivet Home and participate with the residents there in intergenerational activities.  Activities include bingo, pet night, craft nights, Thanksgiving service & the MN Zoomobile.  Through these activities the residents at the home & the junior high students form friendships and a chance to enjoy one another’s company.

Sunday Serve

Sunday Serve is a unique program for 8th Grade Leaders that works to teach students about their community by participating in different service projects for various organizations around the Twin Cities. One Sunday a month we come together, worship at the 9 o’clock service, share in a meal, and learn about the populations around us that are facing stressors we may not be personally familiar with. Projects include making sandwiches for those facing food deficits, assembling Easter baskets for displaced youth, tying blankets for those that have faced violence, shopping for a family in Pastor Scott’s ministry, and so much more.

Sunday Serve is a program created to involve your confirmation children in serving others in their community. When your children are serving others they are not only helping those who are in need but also helping themselves learn about what it means to be a good steward. Participating in Sunday Serve will also help your children get their service hours for confirmation, BONUS!
