New Friends

Lakeside Lutheran Teens for Christ warmly invite those with special to LLHS for activities in the west gym, to hang out and develop friendships. Young people with and without special needs join together for a variety of activities, including games, crafts, snacks and music.

Because Teens for Christ has not been able to host New Friends—one of our favorite events—in person, the Teens remembered those friends by creating and dropping off Blessings Bags.


Each bag included with crafts and treats, handwritten notes, and pictures from past New Friends events.


One mom of a New Friend wrote, "What a surprise to have a Teens for Christ call and then stop by with the bag of goodies! Please share our gratitude for being remembered in such a way. Hopefully, we will be able to get together at least one time before the end of the school year."

"New Friends" events at LL all held from 1–3 p.m.
