Kindergarten – 6th Grade
Children of all ages are disciples of Jesus. They are part of the community of believers. Their gifts and talents are given by the Holy Spirit to share Jesus’ love and grace with the world. There are a variety of opportunities throughout the year for children and their families to grow in their relationship to Jesus and to the community of believers. For more information on opportunities for elementary-school aged students contact the Faith Formation Team.

J-Team and Little Lutherans
An after-school faith education time for K-6th graders. The time consists of snacks, games, learning about and practicing our faith, and building relationships together. The program is led by church staff, adult and young adult volunteers committed to sharing their faith with children! Held every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month after school until 5:15 p.m. Children walk from the elementary school to the church with staff and volunteers. Students in other school districts may get dropped off between 3:15-3:45 p.m.
Children Leading Worship
Several times a year, children are invited to help lead worship, including the Christmas program. Children are encouraged to usher, acolyte, assist with communion (holding the empty cup basket), bake communion bread, collect the noisy offering, and by assisting in Holy Week worship and other special events.
First Communion Workshops
There is no age requirement to receive Holy Communion. Children, youth and adults grow in their faith differently. Holy Communion is an unconditional gift from Jesus. Adult/child workshops regarding Holy Communion are held twice a year.
If you have questions, concerns, or would like to discuss first communion, please contact Interim Pastor Andrea Fluegel.
Third Grade Bibles
Third Graders receive Bibles as part of their faith journey. When they were baptized, their parents, sponsors and congregation members promised to place in their hands the Bible, the Holy Scriptures, to nurture their lives in faith and in prayer, to share with others the message of Christ through words and deeds. Receiving their Bible as a gift from the congregation is one part of fulfilling those promises made in baptism.
