LYF (Lutheran Youth Fellowship) is the youth program at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Wilcox.  LYF meets every month on the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Youth Room in the basement of the church.  The only requirements for membership in the LYF Youth Group are being Junior High or High School age.  Membership in St. John’s Lutheran Church is not required and there are no membership dues.  Every Junior High and High School age person is invited to join our group.


LYF elects officers each year.  The officers meet together and discuss goals and activities for the upcoming year.  These ideas are brought before the rest of the LYF Members for consideration.


Monthly meetings consist of devotions, business meeting, a Godtube video with Bible Study, and sometimes after meeting activities.


LYF provides an Easter Breakfast for the congregation on Easter Morning.


LYF is also involved in many activities in the Wilcox Community.  In the past we have raked leaves, shoveled snow, and provided a haunted house at Halloween, done Christmas Caroling at Cambridge Court Nursing Home in Kearney.  We also have a camping trip at the Harlan County Lake where we also go bowling attend movies.


Our LYF group is also involved in activities outside the community of Wilcox.  We have a yearly outing to Lincoln, Nebraska, for Laser Tag on 70th and O Street and we attend the Nebraska District LYF High School and Junior High Youth Conferences in Aurora and Omaha. 


Over the past three years we have participated in a servant event where we do volunteer work for other communities. 


In 2010 and 2011, our group has been involved in refurbishment projects at the Lutheran Island Bible Camp in Henning, Minnesota.  We helped with refurbishment of camp facilities from rebuilding trails to siding and roofing buildings, painting and clearing areas for new camping sites. The Lutheran Island Bible Camp is year around camp for all age groups and is located on an eighty acre island that is in the middle of one of Minnesota’s lakes.    You can learn more about Lutheran Island Bible camp in their website at


In 2012 LYF members, guests and sponsors traveled to Angel Fire, New Mexico, where we worked on projects in the Angel Fire, Taos, Whittington, and Santa Fe communities.  We built nearly a mile of new hiking trails at the NRA Center in Whittington.  We worked at a regional food depot in Santa Fe but mixed in fun by touring the Old Santa Fe downtown area.  At Taos we worked on the grounds at Sangre de Christo Lutheran Church and for fun we went white water rafting down the Rio Grande River.  We stayed at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church in Angel Fire.  Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church is a congregation that hosts four servant events a year with participants from all over the United States in June and July.   This very unique Lutheran Church has only a membership of 10 people.  You can learn more about the church and the servant event program they have set up at


In the summer of 2013 LYF members and adults will go to Easterville, Canada, to conduct a Vacation Bible School for a Cree Indian Nation village.  This event was arranged by LAMP (Lutheran Association of Missionary Pilots) Ministry of Edmonton, Canada.  This will be the first time LYF has taken the Word of God international.  They are expecting 75 to 100 children to attend the VBS in Easterville.  Easterville is 300 miles north of Winnipeg.  You can learn more about LAMP Ministries at
