Summer Youth "lock-in"

Youth of ORELC were invited to a "lock-in" event on Friday, July 1, 2022 from 7:00 - 11:00 PM!

Beyond the fun food, we played games like The human knot (a communication game), corn hole, an observation game, a fun bible study on the Trinity and we saw the Town of Smithfield fireworks from our parking lot! 

We had such good food, fun and learning we want to do this again in the fall.

The first “post confirmation” Sunday school class on Rally Day, Sunday September 11, will be a study focusing on “It’s ok to be different, life as a Christian Teen”

Enjoy your summer - See you soon! 


Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to be encouraged in their walk with Jesus Christ and learn about the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.

The Gathering is more than the five days of the event. The preparation process for the Gathering brings together young people and supportive adults to encourage each other in their baptismal identity. The Gathering provides young people a vision for the vastness of Christ’s Church and equips them for vocational service as they continue their walk with Jesus.

This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO. For additional ways to connect to LCMS Youth Ministry, please visit www.lcms.org/youth.
