Middle School Youth Ministry

The middle school students attending South Canyon Lutheran attend classes on Wednesday nights as a part of our Confirmation process. The content of our lessons is on a three year rotation, alternating between studying the New Testament, the Old Testament, and the Small Catechism. For more information about Confirmation Classes, see the Confirmation page.

In addition to the usual Wednesday night programming, South Canyon Lutheran plans semi-monthly activities to create fellowship opportunities for middle school students such as a hay ride in the fall, ice skating in the winter, lock-ins and more!  

Our middle school students meet each Sunday morning during the school year at 9:15 a.m. for fellowship through a mixture of games and various service projects for the community, such as raking lawns, making tie blankets, and more for various different charitable organizations.

Our middle school summer trips are on a yearly cycle, alternating between a Mission Trip and an Adventure Trip. There are also additional trips offered thought out the year such as attending Faith Fest at Augustana University and various different retreats.

Our middle school students also have the opportunity to go to camp through one of Lutherans Outdoors' summer camps throughout South Dakota.

We'd love for you to be a part of our youth ministry at South Canyon Lutheran. If you have any questions or would like more information contact Matt, our Youth Ministries Coordinator.


Don’t let anyone look down on you because of your youth, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
