Youth Ministries

We believe that the youth are not just the future of the church but ARE the church.

Our youth are active in all parts of the church: assisting in worship, leading service projects, and even mentoring younger students.

Every year we invite our students, middle schoolers (grades 6-8) and high schoolers (grades 9-12) to go on a service trip to places like Northern Minnesota, Chicago, West Virginia, or Nashville. We get to experience the work of the Lord in many different ways.

Our youth are not the church of tomorrow, but rather they are the church of today!  Through our various ministry opportunities at Christ Our Savior, young people are able to live out the gospel message every day.  

 

TACOS Winter Wonderland Retreat at Fortune Lake 

Fortune Lake is a camp located in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  This coming summer will mark Fortune Lake’s 90th year of operation in serving over 700 youth annually.  

The Winter Wonderland Retreat on January 17-19th is open to all TACOS youth.  This retreat has a laid back atmosphere of enjoying the wonders of winter in the U.P.  Activities will include snowshoeing, snow tubing, sledding, cross country skiing and a hot sauna!  This retreat also has an option to go skiing at Ski Brule which is a ski place not too far from camp for a portion of the day.

 You can sign up for the retreat on the bulletin boards at church or by emailing Wade at tacos@coslc.com.  We will be registering together as a group, so please do not register online through Fortune Lake.  After signing up you can register by picking up a physical copy of the registration forms in the TACOS office or by printing off your own here.   Please contact Wade if you have any questions on anything regarding the retreat.
