Youth & Family Ministry Signups

In order to help you stay up to date with what's going on in the Youth and Family Ministry at PMLC and let you sign up for events easily and at your own pace, we have setup a list of all the current signups going on at PMLC. You can access them here.

    • YouthConnect and KidsConnect are our Sunday School Programs at PMLC. Every Sunday from 9:45am-10:45am we meet and talk about the week's reading and how they apply to our lives this week. We meet in a Large Group/Small Group model and trust me, your youth and kids will love it. We sing songs, play games and have an all around good time while learning about God and connecting with each other. 
    • Confirmation at PMLC is a 2 year program that is typically started in 7th grade and completed in 8th grade. We meet on Wednesday nights from 7-8:30pm during the school year and the kids love it. It may be the best program at PMLC!
    • High School Da'Lght is our High School Youth Group. We have dinner, some game time and then dive into a bible study topic that is tied into current events. This is a must for your high schooler to connect at PMLC and with other kids their age.

    To sign up, click on YouthConnect, KidsConnect, Confirmation, or High School Da'Light above for age specific registrations forms.

  • Come join us as we have an afternoon the NTNL Bishop Erik Gronberg. We will have a short worship service with a message from the bishop , a photo for each confirmation class taken with the bishop, a ministry fair with information and involvement opportunities from synod and ELCA ministries, and food, of course! 

    The goals are for confirmation students to get to know the bishop and youth from other congregations, learn about our wider church and how to get involved, worship, and have fun!

  • This year our Valentino's Valentines Day dinner is taking a Medieval turn. We will be celebrating the Valentines Day holiday with a Medieval style menu, entertainment from our youth and court jesters, lots of fun and fellowship, and a night you will remember. We are looking for volunteers to help run this amazing fundraiser including waiters/waitresses, hosts, performers, emcee's, kitchen helpers, and more. If you want to earn some money towards your summer trips or earn hours of community service, this is an awesome fundraiser to help with. 

  • Come join us as for a two day, one night retreat with other middle schoolers from the NTNL Mission Area. We will do worship, small group Bible studies, a service project, an evening at Group Dynamix, a stay in a local hotel, and food, of course!


    The cost is $75 and we will meet at PMLC at noon on Feb. 16th and will be back at PMLC by 1pm on Sunday, Feb. 17th.  Registration Fee jumps to $125 after Jan 20th so get your registrations in ASAP! 

  • Youth Service Days is a chance for our youth to help our members of our congregation who need help around their home or business with some manual labor. We can do things like spread mulch, weed gardens, help organize an attic, garage or home, help paint or stain a fence and much more. We have a Youth Service Day on Feb 23rd and also two more scheduled for the spring.


    If you want us to come out to your house and do some work, go to pmlcyouth.org/YSDJobs or sign up in the atrium.

  • The Peer Ministry Retreat is a training for High Schoolers and it is for youth who are interested in leadership, faith witness, and service and want to share that with their community, their church, and their friends. It is kind of like Stephens Ministry for youth. It has a lot of good teachings and trainings that apply in the church setting but also outside of church. The Peer Ministry Training is in three steps. The first year you attend the retreat, you attend the Peer Ministry 1 training which will help our peer leaders enhance their skills of listening, helping peers and communication. They will discover how caring relationships are a vital ministry. Then next year you can go to the Peer Ministry 2 trainings and then Peer Ministry 3 the next year. All three trainings happen at the same retreat, just lead by different leaders. This is a very limited event, so if you feel like this event is for you, then contact Jay Walls or Pastor Kate for more information or to sign up.

  • On Friday March 29th we will have our first Parents Night Out of 2019! The 6th-12th graders will be babysitting the younger children at church while you head out for a night on the town. Children 3 years old-5th grade are able to attend. Your child will enjoy a night of fun games, a movie, snack, and getting to know the PMLC youth. We ask families to make a minimum donation of $30. All proceeds will go to support the youth on their Summer ministry trips.

  • The Chili Cook Off is April 10th, and we need your help to make this a success. We need help gathering the supplies to make the event a success - cheese, butter, bread, desserts, condiments, kids foods, etc. If the church purchased all the supplies for this event, there would be no profit. If you are able to bring a large bag of shredded cheese or a couple loafs of French Bread, AWESOME! Every little bit helps. We also need volunteers to help out with the event - from setup, to serving help and even clean up help. If you would like to sign up to volunteer at the Chili Cookoff on March 21st, click here or go to pmlcyouth.org/ChiliHelp.

    If you want to bring a Chili to be challenged, to to pmlcyouth.org/ChiliChallenge

  • We have over 1,000 people come through the doors of Preston Meadow on Easter Sunday, April 21st, and we usually serve over 300 of them breakfast on Easter Morning. We need your help to make this possible. If the church purchased all the supplies for this event, there would be no profit. If you are able to bring an egg casserole, some precooked sausage or even just some fruit or muffins, that would be AWESOME! Every little bit helps. We also need volunteers to help out with the event - from setup on the day before, to serving help the day of and even clean up help after the event. To sign up to volunteer for the Easter Breakfast and the Setup Day, go to pmlcyouth.org/EasterVolunteers. To sign up to bring some food donations, go to pmlcyouth.org/EasterDonations.

  • This trip is not for the faint of heart. The Young Adult Haiti SERVE Trip is a life changing and very difficult trip. Be prepared for hot days and hot nights, sleeping on a concrete roof and taking a bath out of a bucket. Also be prepared to build awesome relationships, meet many wonderful Haitians and get blown away by their persistence and determination. This trip will change you. It will change your perspective and it will change the way you look at things around you. 


    Since this trip is a bit more difficult than the others and since we are not in the USA anymore, we do require that all trip participants are at least 16 years of age. 


    If this sounds like something you are interested in, please talk to Jay Walls, Kate Knutson, or Paul Mussachio before you sign on the dotted line.

  • The High School trip this summer is with SERVE BOLDLY—an ELCA Lutheran Mission Trip Organization and we are pleased to announce that we will be heading to Denver, CO for a week of service, fellowship, faith formation, and sightseeing. We will be spending the nights on the floor of a local ELCA church and serving throughout the days at local outreach centers, VBS programs, and other ministry partners around the Denver Metro area. We will start and end the day with worship and we will also have daily bible studies to help feed our spirits while we are out exhausting our bodies.


    This is a new experience for us at PMLC but we have been doing Mission Trips like this for many years. I know that this trip will be a huge success and I hope you join us on this amazing trip and invite your friends.You won’t want to miss out, so sign up now! 

  • The Middle School Summer SERVE Trip this year is heading to Briarwood with MISSION DFW. The Mission DFW program is a unique Camp/Mission Hybrid experience that combines service opportunities in our community with the fun of summer camp.  Participants will be based at Briarwood and will travel out into the community each day in work teams to provide services and a positive Christian message.  Groups will return to camp for some Briarwood style fun. There are opportunities for both youth and adults during Mission DFW.  Campers get the experience of Briarwood and the vast opportunities of service that DFW has to offer. This is the experience of a lifetime and a great way to spend the summer!
