Lutheran Youth Organization
St. John’s LYO is open to all youth in the congregation in grades 6-12. We often include younger children in our events with the older ones serving as role models.
Currently our LYO maintains “Seeds of Youth,” a vegetable garden in the congregation’s field. They have planted radishes, tomatoes, peas, beets, carrots, and peppers which when harvested are taken to the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities Outreach Center Food Bank.
The LYO members are also involved beyond the Pottstown area. Amanda Hoffman is the Upper Montgomery Conference representative to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod’s Youth Ministry Board.
Most importantly, our youth are involved in the worship life of this congregation. Members of the LYO, as well as their younger brothers and sisters in Christ, are regular Worship Assistants serving as Acolytes, Crucifers, Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, Music Leaders, Communion Assistants, and Assisting Ministers. There is no distinction among our members; all are children of God, no matter what their age.
