For more information, please email the Coordinator, Arlene Janssen,

Youth Update!
Our youth has “rebranded” ourselves.
We stopped being two churches
(Christ the Good Shepherd and Holy Cross) and became one youth group.
Our new name is Faithful Lutheran Youth (AKA Fly ).
We are excited for this change and look forward to what the future holds for our group!
Sarah and Pastor P+
