The objective of a Sunday School program reflects the experience of becoming in the Christian faith and life. At every age this can be attained to some degree and at every age the learner can hope for further fulfillment. Our ultimate purpose is to help all persons be aware of an grow in their understanding of God, especially of his redeeming love as revealed in Jesus Christ.
We participate in Operation Christmas Child, a unique worldwide outreach program. These gifts went to children in impoverished areas worldwide-- a tangible expression of Jesus' love during the Christmas season! Thanks for the abundance of donations, for the generosity and desire to share the love of Christ in a practical, heartfelt way.
There are several students involved in our Sunday School Program! We are utilizing the Augsburg Fortress curriculum. This does a great job of reaching today's hands-on generation of kids with active learning and unique learner resources at each grade level.
We continue to celebrate birthdays. There have been many generations of small hands putting pennies into our little church piggybank. We have also enjoyed providing special music and recitations each month during worship service.
The Christmas program is held every year in December as we talk about sharing the wonderful story of Jesus' birth. The traditional 7-12th grade candle-light cross service at the conclusion of the program highlights a very meaningful experience as we celebrate our Lord's birth.
The Youth of our congregation includes those in grades 7-12.
Our confirmation meets every Wednesday evening at 6:45 PM and consists of both the 7th and 8th graders. They study the basic teachings of the Christian faith. The classes begin in the fall and are held through the following spring. Watch for more information in the church bulletin or on the website or call the church office.
Senior high youth meet regularly with the pastor and adult sponsors as the Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO).
The LYO meets regularly on the 2nd Sunday of the month with the Pastor for discussions and activities. Watch the Calendar of Events on our website or the calendar in the newsletter.
