Westside Youth

Our youth group is known as WELCY and  they are an energetic group of teenagers that come together to have fun and to serve God through local service projects. The leaders of this fun group are Kim & Carl Webb, Carrie Mew and Stephanie Elliott.

During 2018 and 2019, the youth often met at "Hang Out Nights" at the church.  The youth and confirmation class participated in the Canadian Lutheran World Relief "Baling Days".  This meant a road trip to a facility near Elmira, Ontario.  The youth were part of many volunteers who helped bale quilts, check the contents and box up We Care bags.  The youth also helped weigh and lable boxes and load the truck.

The youth have also been volunteers at our annual PA Day Camp - a full day program for up to 15 children.  By helping at this program, the youth have developed leadership skills and high school youth have gained volunteer hours.
