Sunday School as "Children's Church"

We will not be holding a "traditional" Sunday School hour at this time, but offering a shorter "Children's Church" where the younger children attend worship, but leave during the readings and sermon and return for Communion.*

Children's Church

Pre-K - 4th Grade: During the worship service each Sunday the children in grade levels Pre-K through 4th are dismissed before the sermon for a lesson, craft and music time appropriate for their age. 

6th-8th Grade - Lutheran Confirmation Program

*Due to continued concerns over the spread of COVID-19 we  have made these changes to our traditional Sunday School program to limit the amount of time spent together and to spread out in a larger space, rather than meeting in small classrooms.

Nursery Available

There is a nursery available in the basement of the sanctuary.  You can find it by going down the side steps at the back of the sanctuary.  There is also a family restroom available with changing table down those same stairs and straight down the hall.

Below is a list of links to PDF files of the teacher guides for children’s church so teachers and parents may access them.
