EDUCATION

The purpose of Christian Education is to provide a solid grounding in the stories and principles of the Bible which underpin our understanding of history, morality, and the Christian faith.

Sunday Church School

 

Our Sunday Church School program welcomes children between the ages of 3 years-of-age and 8th grade and helps them come to a greater understanding of the unconditional love God has given us through His son, Jesus Christ. The children learn through a variety of experiences including Bible stories, Bible study, role playing, written activities, as well as craft and mission projects.  Classes start at 9:00 A.M. in the Fellowship Hall from September through June.

Confirmation

 

Confirmation is a two-year period of study and reflection, for 7th and 8th graders, that explores the promises and the life that God gives us in the waters of holy baptism.  Confirmation provides an opportunity for discussion, learning and thinking so that we can grow in our relationships with God and one another.  During these two years, we learn the content of our faith which is found in the Bible (year 1) and Luther’s Small Catechism (year 2).  In addition we learn why faith in God matters in our daily life.  Third, we learn what it means to be a Lutheran Christian.  Most importantly, though, we want to communicate how the Gospel, God’s good news, makes a difference in our daily lives.  Our program includes direct instruction, service projects, field trips, lock-ins and retreats.  Each student has their own faith mentor from the congregation who will support them through this two year process
