Youth ministry in south carolina is being updated.

Faith Ablaze (High School)

January 26-28, 2024 @ Lutheridge in Arden, NC

Faith Ablaze is for current high school students that want to take their faith to the next level. Led by campus pastors and college students, participants will discover what their faith is like after Confirmation and how it can make a difference in the world.

In 2024, Faith Ablaze will engage the material used in the July Youth Gathering. It will benefit churches as they prepare for the Gathering and be great content for individual participants and youth groups who aren’t traveling to the Gathering.

Youth will enjoy the beauty of Lutheridge in the winter, have freedom to choose different activities and areas of interest, and set their faith on fire through inspiring conversation. Adult leaders are welcome to stay at camp over the weekend but will not have a specific role in leadership and will be encouraged to check in with their participants at certain times.


$215 Youth
$105 Adults

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 Rev. Emily Hartmann by e-mail Also, you will need to download and complete the background check release form.

Additional Resources

The South Carolina Synod is committed to ensuring that we provide safe places of worship and fellowship to everyone we serve. As part of that commitment we are providing information on Safe Gatherings as a resource for you in this important area.

Safe Gatherings is an online abuse prevention program that screens and educates staff and volunteers to help prevent abuse of children, youth, and vulnerable adults in group settings. When employees and volunteers are trained to identify potential abusers, recognize the signs of abuse, and know how to handle reporting, they are better equipped to prevent abuse.

LCY Resolution Against Racial Injustice

In the name of Jesus Christ, the Resolution Against Racial Injustice was passed by the Voting Members of the 2015 Annual Convention of the Lutheran Church Youth of the South Carolina Synod, ELCA this 20th day of June by unanimous decision.
