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.
South Carolina Synod youth and adults are invited to register for the fourth annual GraceWorks week of service July 16-21. The week kicks off with a Sunday night program and then runs 9-5 Monday through Friday with worship, service, learning and fellowship as together we put our hands to use for God’s work!
By The Rev. Eric Wolf
“Don’t let them pigeonhole you into youth ministry!” advised a seminary professor as we prepared for internship. What that professor meant was, “You’ll be doing many different roles in your ministry, so insist on getting a wider experience than working with one group in your internship congregation.” What a lot of us heard was, “Youth ministry isn’t really pastoral ministry.”
The Event (6th Grade) – March 18-19
Being in 6th Grade can be hard because it’s a year of transition. This is on the same weekend as the 7th & 8th Grade Winter Retreat, and begins on Saturday (information on the registration and RSVP forms). We will be using the same theme as that retreat! The Event @ Camp Kinard, 3/18-19 cost is $60 per person.
South Carolina Lutheran Church Youth is…
ministry by, with and for youth
helping youth to know and share God’s love in Christ

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
