Mission Statement


Redeemer Lutheran Youth Group exists to bring youth closer to Christ through Faith, Fun and Fellowship.






Retreats
Our local Lutheran camp, Camp Dixie, is located on Perdido Bay in Josephine, AL.  Camp Dixie holds Youth Retreats each summer for a week at a time for several different age group brackets.  These fun events foster learning about God’s Word, fellowship, and growing in faith.  The retreats are open to young people from all of the local Lutheran Churches’ youth groups, and offer the opportunity for young people to meet new friends from other congregations.  Many generations of Redeemer’s youth have created lasting lifelong friendships and memories as a result of attending Summer Youth Retreats at Camp Dixie!  The youth group projects mentioned above may help some youth afford to attend who otherwise might not be able.

Trips

The National LCMS Youth Gathering is an opportunity to travel and meet with thousands of other young Christians from around the country. The National LCMS Youth Gathering takes place every 3 years, (next in 2019) and is for high school aged youth.    If you are interested in attending, contact the pastor.

"Higher Things" also conducts gatherings for our youth.  The mission of Higher Things® is to assist parents, congregations, and pastors in cultivating, encouraging and promoting a distinctively Lutheran identity among their youth and young adults.

"Higher Things" meetings are for middle school and high school aged youth - focusing on those who are confirmed in our confession of faith.  Meetings are scheduled several times a year in different regions of the United States.  Contact the pastor if you are interested in attending!   More information about Higher Things can be found by using a searchengine to go and visit their website elsewhere on the internet at :  higherthings.org .






Projects
In past years, Redeemer’s Youth Group has taken on projects to earn money to attend local Youth Retreats, Regional and National Youth Gatherings, and special trips. In some of our photos, the Youth Group can be seen bagging groceries at a local grocery store for tips. Other projects include fish fries, spaghetti dinners and the sale of gumbo to raise money for special projects. If you are interested in renewing our youth group: joining it as a participant or a leader, or assisting with planning future events, please contact the pastor through the church office.
