Faith Formation Ministries recognizes that the seed of faith starts at birth and it is our covenant to grow and nurture that faith by building relationships with our young people, by supporting young people's relationships with God, by living one’s faith through mission and service, and by experiencing faith as a vibrant and compassionate way to live life connected to God and others.

Uniquely You: High School girls group that meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 8:00 p.m. They meet in the upstairs youth lounge. This is perfect for the young women who prefer a more dedicated time of study and discussion. While they do share laughs and snacks, the goal of this groups is to allow time for real faith conversations that makes room to support each other in the special walk of a young woman of faith.

Castaway Retreat: Usually held at the end of September, this retreat is a gathering across our Synod with High School students from Fargo to Devils Lake, Grafton to Wahpeton attending this weekend. It is filled with the music our youth love, worship in camp/praise style, learning, free time, and more.
