Adult Education

Adult Forum

Adult Forum meets in the Lounge on Sundays during the school year between the two services (from 9:45 am to 10:45 am) to coincide with the Sunday School hour for the youth.  Adult Forum explores topics related to the Bible, our faith, our mission in the world or social issues.  Everyone is welcome.  Attend when you can as each week is meant to be a standalone session.

Sunday School/Education Hour

Sunday School is for youth from Beginner-6th grades and under 2 years old with a parent. We use the Spark curriculum from Augsburg Fortress because it connects to the lessons in our lectionary in worship & because it draws children into the lesson in creative & fun ways.  We hold Sunday School every Sunday starting at 9:45 am-10:45 am. Parents and kids meet in the Social Hall for IGNITE: a large group opener from 9:45-10:00am. At 10:00 all students and parents go to their perspective classes.

Milestone Ministry

Milestones are significant life events where reflection, relationships & seeing God at work are very important. Together families will learn and talk about the milestone in a “Milestone Event” during the 9:45 am Sunday School hour.  Youth & parents will then celebrate the milestone with the congregation in the 11:00 am service.  It is our hope that families will draw closer during the milestone celebrations & grow in faith together.  

 


Enlighten: Catechism

Catechism is for 7th and 8th graders to provide a place to learn about our faith, ask questions in small groups, & grow in friendships. At the end, youth can decide if they would like to affirm their faith. The "confirmation" service takes place in October of their 9th grade year.

Parents are invited to join the youth for the first meeting & the last meeting along with the lunch we have at the beginning of each session.  The lesson is on Sunday from 12:15-2:15 with lunch servied at 12:15. Families take turns providing dinner.
