6th – 8th Grade

Out to Lunch
Throughout the school year, the middle school goes out to ear after worship services are over. This is a great time to just hang out and catch up with one another. Watch the bulletin and weekly E-news for specific dates and times.


  • 7th grade year is spent with Pastor Tom learning Martin Luther’s Small Catechism on Wednesday Evenings.
  • 8th grade year is spent covering the Bible and tough questions that concern our faith.
Summer Camp
Immanuel takes groups who have completed 2nd – 8th grade to summer camp.  6th graders go to Camp Chrysalis, 7th grade spends a week at Camp Chrysalis for confirmation camp and 8th grade goes to Ebert Ranch Camp. Cross Trails Ministry provides a wonderful environment for students to experience God and grow in their faith in a camp setting.

9th – 12th Grade

Out to Lunch
A couple times a month the high school youth will gather and pick a place to go have lunch immediately following 11:00 worship.  This is a time to get to know one another, catch up and eat a good meal! Watch the bulletin and weekly E-News for details.

Mission Trips
Every 3rd summer the high school youth travel outside of Texas for a mission trip.  It’s a great experience to go see life in a different place and help those who are in need there!
Destinations have included:

Boundary Waters
Every 3rd summer the high school will travel to Cook, Minnesota to canoe/camp God’s Great Northwoods!

Sr. High Synod Youth Gathering
Annually the Southwestern Texas Synod holds their youth gathering for youth across the southwestern part of the state.  We join together for three days of fun, fellowship, worship, bible study and workshops.


Two times a year the youth will hold fundraisers to support their mission trips, camps, and youth gatherings.  All proceeds go directly to youth and youth scholarships for these events!

The fall fundraiser is a BBQ Chicken to-go plate fundraiser.

The spring fundraiser is a dinner, live and silent auctions, and a raffle.  This is complete with kid’s activities – something for the whole family!
