Our Call as the Church of TODAY…

We are called, young and old, to be the Body of Christ together. In baptism we receive God’s Spirit, through which we are empowered to answer that call. Together we can do so much more than we can individually. Together, let us share God’s love with all the world! Together we can make a difference!

The purpose of the South Carolina Synod Lutheran Church Youth organization is to be a community in Christ…Rooted in God’s love…Hearing God’s voice…Acting as God’s hands.

To be an adult volunteer for these events, please contact Pastor Eric Wolf at Also, you will need to download and complete the background check release form.

In community we learn and grow…

Winter Retreats are offered each year for three age groups: 7th/8th, 9th/10th and 11th/12th graders, focusing on issues of faith formation through large and small group activities.

An annual LCY Convention/Gathering brings the statewide Youth organization together each June at Newberry College to conduct business, learn about their calling as a part of the Body of Christ and celebrate life together.

Bridge-Building Camp enables youth and older adults to spend a week sharing and building relationships with each other in the summertime.

Camp HUGG pairs youth staff with special needs youth for a week of day-camp activities.

Hand in Hand/Spring into Action weekend servant events call youth to learn and serve as Christ served.

Conference Gatherings: Steering Committees made up of youth and adults from the 6 LCY Conferences —Coastal, Midlands, Saxe-Gotha (Lexington area), Western, Heartland (Chapin north to Clinton) and Piedmont (upstate)— plan and promote two events per year for youth in their geographic areas.

Club 345 is designed for upper elementary youth to gather for a day of fun, fellowship and a faith-enriching program.
