High School Youth Group

Good Shepherd works in partnership with Immanuel Lutheran Church in Viroqua to provide a well rounded youth ministry.  The youth ministry works to bring opportunities to for youth to grow in faith, in fellowship, and in life skills.  In order to do so, the high school youth group meets every Sunday night.  We do a variety of activities ranging from Bible studies, to snow shoeing, to learning how to cook a meal, and more.

Thursday, July 27 - Thursday, August 3

There is a tradition of having a summer trip with Good Shepherd for our high school youth that will help them grow as young adults in faith and in life.  We use a three year cycle to focus on three different calls God has for each of us: Year 1 is a mission trip to focus on God's call to service others, Year 2 is an adventure trip to focus on God's call to continually grow in our faith, and Year 3 is the National Youth Gathering to focus on God's call to be in community.

This year we will be having a hybrid of Year 1 and 2 in our Boundary Waters trip from Thursday, July 27-Thursday, August 3.  While in the Boundary Waters, we will spend time together the first two days doing service projects, such as trail maintenance and fire prevention.  Our last three days in the Boundary Waters will be spent in smaller groups on a three day canoe trip designed by the individual groups, so you can canoe to the border of Canada, spend a day rock climbing, or swimming in the waterfalls.


We have reached our fundraising goal!  Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us during our fundraising goals!

July 16 will be a joint worship service at Good Shepherd at 9am.  During this service we will be praying for a safe and memorable experience for our youth as they experience God's great creation in the Boundary Waters.

August 20 will be a joint worship service at Immanuel at 9am.  During this service, our youth who were on the trip will be sharing a little bit about their trip.
