St. Paul's Youth Group meets every Sunday morning, 9:00-10:15, in the church basement. We have a very casual setting with couches, ping pong table, foosball, refrigerator and microwave. We start out with a short business meeting and than move into a bible study. Our bible studies are subjects that pertain to youth and things they may experience while in high school or college. It is a relaxed atmosphere with discussion and reading God's word. Our mission for St. Paul's Youth is: serving God as we serve others. We do a couple of servant events in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, 3 times a year, as well as volunteer work for the town of Watertown. We've also gone water skiing and tubing, fishing, bowling, hayrides, super bowl parties, snow tubing and other fun activities. We plan 1-2 activities a month. Once a year we take a week long mission trip. We've done mission work in Florida, Wisconsin and every 3rd year we go to Jamaica for our mission trip.
Our first priority as Youth Group Directors is that the youth grow in their faith in their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and what He has done for them. We try and do this by:studying God's word, serving others through our mission projects and having fun and fellowship with other Christians.
In an effort to aid parents in raising their children to know Jesus as their Savior, St. Paul's holds Sunday School classes for 3 year olds through Senior High, each Sunday at 9:15-10:15am, September through May. No pre-registration is needed. Just come and join us as children taste the goodness of Christ's forgiveness and love in many exciting ways.
The Junior High Youth group of St. Paul's Lutheran Church is a ministry that provides Christian fellowship, mission opportunities, and outreach activities for 7th & 8th graders in addition to the spiritual nurture they receive in Sunday School and Confirmation classes. Helping youth so they can reach out to others, build supportive relationships, and grow in their Christian wisdom and discipleship with Jesus is so important! Activities are planned 1 to 2 times per month. Youth, give the Lord an opportunity to make a real difference in your life!
The Senior High Youth group provides a firm foundation for teens to grow through discussions on youth related topics in light of God's Word, and mutual support and fellowship in fun related activities.

Senior High Youth meet each Sunday morning from 9:00-10:15am in the basement youth room, complete with couches, ping-pong, foosball table, and a microwave for treats. Teens, don't let these exciting adventures pass you by!
