Children’s Ministries

Young ones are a critical part of our congregational life. Their sense of wonder is a gift to us all. We believe families are the most important influence in a child’s faith development, so we partner with you to help your children discover God’s love and to live their developing faith in everyday life.

Sunday School

Age 3 – Grade 6

We invite all children to join us for Sunday School online or in person!

Our online faith formation program – Any Time! Anywhere! Sunday School! – gives your family lots of flexibility as we navigate COVID-19. Kids tune in to complete their course schedule any time, anywhere.

With the re-opening of worship, we are now offering a 6 week in-person Sunday School for kids age 4 – grade 6. For more information, click HERE. 

Faith Markers*

Age 3 – Grade 5

Milestones in a child’s life, Faith Markers help connect families to each other and to the congregation. As a beautiful coincidence, these opportunities also strengthen your family’s relationship with God.
*Faith markers, a part of the Sunday School curriculum, are on hold during the pandemic.

First Communion

Grades 3-5

We extend a special invitation for communion instruction for families with children in grades 3-5, but also welcome instruction for younger children and their families. Whether this is your child’s first communion or your child has communed for many years, this instruction is a time to find deep connection in this sacrament of the Lutheran church. The next retreat will be held during 2022 Lenten season.

It's a really fun and welcoming place. I like the people at Normandale, they make me feel important.

Children’s Choirs

Music is a priority here, and we start building strong voices early! We invite all kindergarten through grade 6 students to participate in our active choir program. It’s one of the reasons we have such a strong adult choir. Celebrations are so much richer and more spirited when children sing!

Children & Family

Kids Faith Connect (KFC)

Age 4 – grade 6

While you enjoy your Wednesday night church activities, bring your kids to connect with their friends in faith. They’ll be “edutained” with crafts, games, and lots more fun!

*Kids Faith Connect is on hold during the pandemic.

Normandale Preschool and Blessing Place

For the youngest members of our community, faith-based educational experiences are offered through Normandale Preschool (age 33 months to 5 years) and Blessing Place (age 18-33 months).
