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.

South Carolina Lutheran Church Youth is…

ministry by, with and for youth

helping youth to know and share God’s love in Christ

making connections that will last a lifetime!

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.
