BFLC Youth and Family Ministries

At Black Forest Lutheran Church, we are children in God’s hands. As fellow disciples of Christ, all Youth and Education events are our efforts to lead all to know and trust Jesus.

We welcome you to visit, bring a friend or neighbor, and see how God is at work in our Black Forest based faith family!

  • We are a people who connect, in joy and in challenge. 
  • We honor God, our families, our community, ourselves.
  • We care for our community by service to each other and especially those in need.
  • We connect often to learn about God!

Greetings BFLC Family!
Thank you everyone for praying for our Youth Denver Mission Trip this past month. We had a blessed week serving in Denver with Brother’s Redevelopment (painting a veteran’s home), Arc Thrift Store (sorting and organizing clothes donations), and The Action Center (food and clothes distribution). We were reminded of how blessed we are and blessed to be a blessing to those in need. We look forward to sharing more about our trip on Sunday morning, July 21. Hope you can join us!

This month, we are especially looking forward to VBS. Personally, I have fond memories of going to VBS and the opportunity it presents for kids to know and love Jesus more. For some kids who come, it may be their first time hearing the gospel! We are thankful yet again to have counselors from Rainbow Trail coming down to lead the camp, but we still need your help. Please sign up to serve as you are able.

VBS week presents a unique opportunity for our church family to reflect Jesus in the way we serve and play with the kids who God brings to us. I sincerely hope your family makes it a priority to come (whether participating or serving) and would encourage you to invite at least one other child or family to come as well. 

The theme of the week is “Created To Be” with a special focus on Psalm 139. We look forward to learning about the purposes God has created us for and be reminded of His great love.

In His Grace,
Andrew Koetsier
