This year the Lego Nativity scene was back…Bigger than ever, complete with 21 different animals, the nativity scene totally captured the attention of countless children this Christmas. What a creative way to tell the story of Jesus’ birth!

In 2012, we traveled with 67 Lebanon County Lutherans (from 8 churches) and worked on home construction in West Virginia. Simply put: Almost Heaven!
We also gather once a month for our “Wave” meeting, a time for devotions, discussion and fun.
Each summer our Youth Group has taken a “Mission” trip where we serve others. Two summers ago we headed to West Virginia to do Habitat for Humanity work. Last summer, joined by four youth from Germany, we stayed locally, serving in nursing homes and day cares. Each night we camped out at Camp Kirchenwald.
We also offer a Youth Sunday School class on Sunday mornings as well as various fun events throughout the year. You can see some of our youth in action in the videos we make periodically.
In 2010, we stayed local, serving a variety of ministries within 45 minutes of our homes. We discovered many ways to reach out and connect with others. One of our projects involved cooking meals for families with loved ones having medical procedures done at Hershey Hospital.
What also “spiced” up the trip was our four German youth visitors. We hope to continue this bridge of friendship and have more German youth come this summer.
In 2009, the youth from our church traveled to West Virginia to work on Habitat for Humanity. We worked with kids from five other churches to lay foundation.
