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 classes meet in age-appropriate large groups for musical instruction with a lead music teacher. Each grade level will also have small group teachers to facilitate games, discussion, and hands-on projects. Throughout the year, Sunday School children will learn songs during music class and will be invited to share this music during Sunday worship services.
Are you interested in teaching Sunday School? A variety of people are needed to make our faith formation ministries a success. Consider how you might be a good fit for one of our Sunday School volunteering needs.

Age 3 – Grade 4
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.
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.
