St. Paul’s Youth
St. Paul's Lutheran Church has an active youth group that has joined with other youth groups in the city (Luther Place and Reformation) for social activities as well as service activities.
This summer, there is an ELCA National Youth Gathering trip to Detroit. Seven youth and two adults from St. Paul's plus seven youth and four adults from Reformation and Luther Place will be traveling together. There have been fundraising events held and the monies raised will help defray the costs of the trip!
In 2015, confirmation will be held on June 7th and the confirmands will enjoy a weekend retreat beforehand at the Pastor's Lake house (yes, that is where the hot tub is located!)
On the third Saturday of each month St. Paul's youth gather at St. Paul’s for the Youth Dinner with the Men's Shelter Residents. They gather from 4:00PM to 8:00PM to go grocery shopping and prepare an elegant meal for the shelter residents. Then they enjoy the meal with the residents. This gives the youth an opportunity for service and helps them to become more aware of the homelessness in the DC metropolitan area.
