youth ministry

Helping Students:
KNOW God, OWN their faith, and make their faith KNOWN.

Sunday Morning Learning Opportunites


Depending on your age, there are 2 opportunities for Sunday morning learning.  If you are in 7th or 8th grade or have not had the opportunity to confirm your faith, you would be welcome in the Confirmation Class which meets on from 9-10:30 in the youth room.  If you are in High School, join us for a team teaching approach from 9:30-10:30. Our meeting location will change depending on what the topic is!  Check here often for updates!

These small groups are a place where you can get connected with other teens who not only want to hear about God’s word BUT live it too!  Through games, music videos, group discussion & fellowship time, we explore how the Bible applies to our everyday life.

Youth Group Opportunites


Youth group activities are for 7th - 12th graders and occur on a monthly basis. Our group is BIG on service and we typically visit the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey, PA to prepare a meal for the folks who are staying in the facility. 

In Ian's Boots is another organization that AELC youth support by collecting gently used shoes of all sorts (from snow boots to cleats to flip flops). Several times throughout the year, we travel to Pottstown to volunteer in the wharehouse by sorting shoes, pulling specific shoes for delivery to a foreign country, or washing and cleaning shoes!

Every year, during July, our group visits the wharehouse faciities of Lutheran World Relief in New Windsor, MD.  Our day is filled with various activities: from unloading a tractor trailer filled with boxes, to packaging health care kits to folding quilts! 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.. And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6
