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.

New! We have created a new pre-confirmation experience for your older kids. We’re excited to engage them in a more age-appropriate level of learning, while building community and excitement for the confirmation program, which will begin in grade 7.

Age 3 – Grade 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 March 13, 2022.
