6th - 12th Graders

The middle and high school years can be an overwhelming time for youth. Diamond Lake Lutheran Church offers a respite from the day-to-day pressures on our kids.

We gather weekly to discuss issues and participate in activities to help kids on their faith journeys while developing an important and supportive community.

Confirmation Classes

Perhaps the biggest faith milestone for youth is affirming their faith through Confirmation. While these classes typically begin in 7th grade, with youth being confirmed on Reformation Sunday (final Sunday of October) in 9th grade, older youth who have not yet been confirmed are welcome to join classes in the fall as well.

Classes take place on Wednesdays from 6:30–7:30 pm beginning with orientation in September. We meet weekly to learn more about our faith and how to make it our own. At each class we have short lessons followed by small group discussions. Throughout the year we welcome interesting guest speakers, participate in service projects, and have fun together!

Activities Throughout the Year

Luther Park Retreat

The annual fall retreat at Luther Park in Danbury, Wisconsin, is a weekend of relaxation and exploration. We play games, build campfires (and devour lots of s’mores), make crafts, and so much more. The retreat is open to all.

Youth Musical

Every year, the Youth of Diamond Lake, from elementary-aged kids all the way through high school, come together to put on an original musical. While the actors begin learning the songs in the Fall during Wednesday night programming, most of the rehearsals take place after Christmas and the musical is performed during the final weekend of February. We have seen kids form lasting bonds from participating in this incredible program.

Spring Cabaret

A fundraiser for youth to receive scholarships to attend camp, retreats, and service learning trips, the Cabaret is a talent and comedy show for members and friends of Diamond Lake. A silent auction and delicious desserts help make this a fun evening for everyone.

Service Learning Trip

High schoolers travel to a different location in the United States each year to walk alongside and learn from people experiencing various challenges including unhousing, addiction, mental health, and other marginalizing experiences.
