High School

Sunday Morning Bible Class 

Every Sunday morning in the Youth Room in Escondido from 9:15-10:15 AM is our Bible Class.  At the San Marcos campus, we meet from 10:45 - 11:30 AM in the fellowship area.  

Youth Night

Sunday 6:30-8:00 pm.  Locations vary. The first of the month is a fun event and throughout the month youth group changes between our San Marcos and Escondido Campus. Here is your open invitation to all high school-age youth. Throughout the month we have time set apart to play games, study God's Word, and recharge for the week ahead. NOTE: December 18 is 7-8:30 PM at the San Marcos campus.

Monthly Events

Every month we will do some sort of fun activity to bring us together on or off campus. Might be kayaking down in La Jolla or jumping around at a trampoline park.  Check back monthly to see what we are up to next.

Servant Events

The highlight of our summers are our Servant Events.  We usually have two events that we offer every year.  The first event is a week long experience partnering with YouthWorks to help those in a particular city such as San Francisco or Denver.  The other event is a two week experience usually overseas.  We have sent groups to China, Macedonia and Greece, Poland, Slovakia, and Puerto Rico. There is a cost to these trips and we do a series of fundraisers throughout the year to help the families afford them.

Youth Gathering

Every three years, the LCMS hosts a National Youth Gathering.  During the summer of 2022, we headed to Houston, TX to be a part of this amazing event.  This event has been one of the many highlights for our youth as they joined over 25,000 youth from all over the world for this week-long event. In the Summer of 2025 we will be heading to New Orleans, LA!
