Education

Sunday School
Each Sunday School time begins with an opening, where all ages congregate in the sanctuary to take attendance, pray, sing some songs, collect our mission offering, and celebrate birthdays.  After opening we split into groups by age:

0-3yr with parents/caregivers – Short devotional and play time
3yr-2nd grade – Reading and craft based on the readings for the day
3rd grade-6th grade – Reading and craft based on the readings for the day
Adult (7th Grade and up) – Variety of topics & books from the Bible

Midweek Classes
Our midweek classes meet on Wednesdays with the following schedule:
5:30-6:00 PM, Dinner: this is an optional meal, open to the congregation. The menu will be posted in the announcements and sign-up is required prior to the day.
6:00-6:20 PM, Chapel: this is an important part of Midweek as we begin our time together in worship and prayer. This also gives pastor time to interact with ALL the students.
6:30-7:15 PM, Class: this is where we will dig in to our learning activities.

Grades 1-4 travel through The Story Bible, alternating between the Old and New Testaments every year, and learning the books of the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and more.

Grades 5-6 sightsee the teachings of the Church as they read through Scripture and take the time to pause and reflect using My Journey in Faith. They also learn the explanations of the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, The Sacrament of Holy Baptism, Confession, and The Sacrament of the Altar as found in Luther’s Small Catechism.

Grades 7-8 explore how to live according to the teachings of Scripture in their daily lives. They also learn more about the life of the church using a variety of tools including Luther’s Small Catechism.

Dialogue & Doctrine
Our group gathers on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 PM in order to talk about a variety of topics. The main objective of this study is to gain a deeper knowledge of the faith and Scripture. Join us as we read the Bible, books, and articles; watch videos; listen to audio and discuss together.

Read Through the Scriptures
We currently have a Bible study that meets on Thursday mornings from 7:30 to 8:30 AM.  The main objective of this study is to simply read through Scripture. Join us as we read the Bible together.

Workshops and More
We always are seeking educational opportunities. We host the occasional workshops to dive deeper into the life, practice, and theology of the Church.  If you have an idea for our educational program or would like to volunteer, please contact the church office.
