Children’s Faith Formation

Holy Moly!Holy Moly (ages 4 - Grade 4)

Our virtual Faith Formation class is for children age four through fourth grade. Each Holy Moly lesson is divided into four equally important parts:

  • Discover – Introduce kids to the Bible story characters and begin to discover the story by watching an animated Bible story video
  • Relate – Discuss what surprised them, what makes them wonder, and how they feel about the story they just saw
  • Connect – Open Bibles and explore the day’s story
  • Create – Imagine and reflect on the Bible story through hands-on activities or games using their learner leaflet.

Each week, we’ll post a Bible story video on our YouTube channel. Pick up a Family Activity Packet at church to do fun crafts together. This class will take approximately 20 minutes and is flexible for busy schedules. For the weekly Holy Moly video lessons, please visit our YouTube channel.

 


Baptism

Pour out your Holy Spirit, the power of your living Word, that those who are washed in the waters of baptism may be given new life. We welcome all who are willing to be washed in the waters of baptism.  If you are interested in baptism for you or your children, please contact Pastor Bill.

First Communion

First Communion is a ceremony during which a person first receives the Eucharist.  Our church hosts a First Communion class which consists of two Saturday morning gatherings where we share the meaning of the Eucharist, the history, and our Lutheran traditions. Typically children in first and/or second grade are ready to participate in the class and receive First Communion.  Please contact the church office for more information.

Bibles for Third Grade Children

Our congregation believes strongly in the promises we make in Baptism.  One of the ways we do this is by providing the Word to our young people.  Each fall, we provide Bibles to our third-grade youth during a Sunday worship service.  We encourage kids to use these Bibles, especially for their Sunday school class and during Confirmation.
