Youth Ministry

Investing in today’s youth is vital for the body of Christ to flourish now and into the future. At Shepherd, we help youth grow in their relationship with the Lord and prepare them to serve Christ in all they do.

Camp Eagle

Each summer, middle and high school youth attend Camp Eagle for a week and dive deeper into relationships with God and each other. 

In Summer 2024, we’ll be digging into the book of Daniel!  We’re going to learn what it means to be citizens of two kingdoms: the Kingdom of Man and the Kingdom of God. The book of Daniel explores this predicament as God’s people are living in exile in a pagan nation. As exiles, their call to holiness was threatened with hostility. God’s promises were pressed by persecution, and believers' faith was literally tested in flames. In our current culture, living in the Kingdom of Man, we must maintain our lifeline in a land that threatens our survival, be adventurous to try new things, love the people around us, be strategic in the way we engage with society, and be hopeful for the coming of God’s kingdom, our true home!

Confirmation Program

Confirmation is a rite of passage in which students learn the basics of the Christian faith. We offer First Communion Class beginning in sixth grade and a two-year Catechism Class beginning in seventh grade. Classes are taught by our Pastors and Director of Christian Education. You do not have to be a member of Shepherd of the Hills Church for your child to participate in our Confirmation program. We encourage you to prayerfully consider enrolling your child in Confirmation.

To learn more, please visit our Confirmation page.


First Communion

In First Communion Class, students are prepared to take Holy Communion. These classes take place during two Sunday evenings in Lent. Classes include dinner and instruction, as parents and children eat together and learn alongside one another!

These classes answer many questions that students often have about Holy Communion.


Catechism Class

Catechism Class is two years and dives into the six main teachings of the Lutheran Church. In 12 class sessions each year, we take students through Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, a wonderful handbook that organizes Bible verses by topic. The program includes field trips, a retreat, and a special ceremony on Confirmation Sunday!
