Sunday School Registration

Sunday School Information

Our education hour is held between services from 9:30 until 10:30. Sunday School is for children from age 3 through 5th grade.  Confirmation is for 6th and 7th grade.  Sunday School begins with opening at 9:30 in the sanctuary with confirmation students helping lead the opening.  Children will then split into their age appropriate classrooms until 10:30.  During that time parents are encouraged to join Pastor for ABC (Adult Bible Class) for an in depth study of our faith, to make it a true education hour for all.  Parents with young children are welcomed and encouraged to join during this time with their young children.

Our Christ-centered curriculum, Growing in Christ, covers the Bible in three years, creating a biblical foundation for lifelong learning.  Growing in Christ follows a same-age classroom model, so students are divided into four classes: Pre-K/Kindergarten, Grades 1 & 2, Grades 3 & 4, and Grade 5 . As they grow in faith alongside their peers, the children explore the Bible, draw connections to the Small Catechism, and learn the traditions of the Lutheran Church.

Our classes are team-taught by adult (and some great, post-Confirmation teens) volunteers who are passionate about teaching our children the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

The Sunday School year runs from September through May, with a less formal Sunday School during the summer and a week of Vacation Bible School (VBS).
