The sense of fellowship that RELC offers extends to high school teenagers. RELC hosts a Senior High Youth Group for freshman-through-senior grades. Calling themselves “The Underground”, the teens participate in spiritual/physical activities to – keep faith in God strong.
Summers bring an opportunity for the youth to travel to other cities for mission opportunities. They travel by bus and work for their stay at locations along the way; with cleanup chores, painting, and the like. The trips provide insight into the lives of people and families who might not have the advantages that our children see here in our city. In 2018, our youth group traveled to Houston to aid in repairing the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in 2017. While there, they attended the ELCA National Youth Gathering with an estimated 40,000 other young people and sponsors.
Giving back to others less fortunate within the Gretna and greater Omaha communities is a key group mission.
With today’s societal pressures, this group is an ideal place for teens to be – complete with meaningful activities within a safe & fun environment. Awesomeness!
