Lutheran Youth WNY is a youth ministry program and resource for 6-12 grade youth, and a resource for ELCA Lutheran churches in the Buffalo-Niagara region of Western New York. See what we are all about, and what guides our ministry.

Our next event

Summer 2020!


Substitute VBS programming available to all congregations!
















Join us for a FREE summer programming opportunity with churches across the WNY area! Since many congregations aren't able to hold Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer, we are bringing it to you! Using the ELCA's 2018 theme "God's Good Creations" we will have weekly challenges throughout the month of July that families can participate in. Check Lutheran Youth WNY's social media to see if your submissions are featured! Head to our God's Good Creation page to check out the details.

Due to current health concerns all of our in person events have been postponed for the time being. As soon as we have any updates we will be sure to inform you. Our Leadership Team has still been meeting monthly with Zoom, and we have enjoyed hosting virtual games nights for youth in the Western New York Area. If your youth group is doing an virtual event, we would love to partner with you! Please visit our contact page so we can start working together on what youth ministry looks like in midst of a pandemic!
