Saints and Sinners is for youth 9th through 12th grade. We meet Wednesday Nights during the school year from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each meeting focuses on faith, fellowship and fun. All high school youth are welcome, as are friends!
Every Christian “has a two fold nature,” Luther argued in expounding his doctrine of simul iustus et peccator. We are at once body and soul, flesh and spirit, sinner and saint. A saint by faith remains a sinner by nature, Luther insisted, and the paradox of good and evil within the same person remains until death. This is the people of God, the saints who are saved, despite their sin.
On the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday last February, the youth had an overnight lock-in, which led into the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service hosted by the ELCA Southeastern Synod, the Lutheran Theological Center in Atlanta and Lutheran Services of Georgia. Serving alongside other volunteers from 28 faith, school and community partner groups we were able to complete the following that will help those that Lutheran Services of Georgia serves.
