Education

IMG_0554Sunday School is in session from September - May for children 3 years old through the 6th grade. After beginning with prayer, they then have fun singing their favorite songs. Then it's off to their classrooms for Bible stories and lessons which are taught by a wonderful group of teachers.

We encourage you to bring your children to Sunday School so they, too, can learn about Jesus and His love for all of His children!
VBS 2011Vacation Bible School is provided for one week during the summer for children who will be entering kindergarten through the 6th grade. The lessons are based on stories in the Bible, with a different theme used each year. The children also have time for various craft projects, outdoor activities (weather permitting) and a light dinner. Your children (and their friends!) are always welcome to attend this fun week-long event.
Confirmation history classes are offered for 7th and 8th grades. Our young people in grades 7 and 8 are given a two-year confirmation instruction program which is based on Luther's Small Catechism. It covers 46 lessons. Each lesson draws into account specific passages from the Bible and requires memorization of a portion of those passages.

As it is important that our youth become familiar with the stories of the Bible, grades 5 and 6 study the Children's Story Bible prior to entering Confirmation class. This takes place on Sundays at 11:00am and covers the stories of the Old and New Testaments.

On Sunday mornings the class attends an opening with songs and prayer and then studies memory work.
