Lifeliners is the teen ministry targeting high school aged youth. Sunday morning topical Bible Studies relate to experiences that these young people face. Lifeliners plan and conduct church and community service projects and organize social activities that they can enjoy together.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is one of our educational ways to spread the word of the Gospel to our young children (age 3 through those entering 8th grade) while at the same time having fun and fellowship with our Christian friends. We start our mornings with devotion and songs as a large group and then break away into smaller groups with kids our own age. We have snacks, music, arts & crafts and fun time along with our studies of the Bible stories. We have an end of the week picnic on Sunday, which follows the 10 am worship service. The service focuses on the message the children were taught during the week.
We also have a 1-day Christmas and Easter VBS that focuses on the message of our Savior.
Tucson Campus Ministry
WELS Tucson Campus Ministry is a program of spiritual support for college students and college aged non-students. Young people meet weekly for a Sunday evening Bible Study and participate in various fellowship activities. It is a great way to meet Christian friends, strengthen your faith or to find out what Christianity is all about.
