First Third Of Life
Passing on the Word of God to the young is one of the most important missions of the body of Christ. Faith Lutheran is committed to fulfilling this mission and passing on the faith to the next generation.
Sunday school meets at 10:00am between worship services. Sunday school is centered around interactive biblical storytelling led by Pastor Ben. These Sunday school classes are designed to be accessible for children, but people ages 5 and up will be engaged and enjoy being a part of bringing to life these sacred stories. Sunday school is held in Room 5 next to the playground. For children under the age of 5, bible-based craft activities are available in the nursery. On special occasions the Sunday school classes join with the adult education classes for fun, interactive, service activities such as wrapping presents for the Fire Department to give away, and packing meals to be sent around the world.
Activities for teenagers center around monthly activities that range from hikes, to caroling, to feeding the hungry. Faith Lutheran also joins with St. John's Episcopal for a yearly trip to a school/orphanage in Mexico for children with special needs. The school is named Rancho Santa Marta, and there our youth work on construction projects for the school, while learning to lead worship and connecting with our brother and sisters in Christ south of the border.
Faith forming and fun gatherings for 7th through 9th graders meeting throughout the year. 9th graders are invited to affirm their baptism on Reformation Sunday.
To learn more or get involved with youth and children activities, please contact Pastor Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FACE – Faith Adult Christian Education
For nearly 30 years our church community has been offering FACE classes on a variety of topics and texts—new books, Bible studies, video series, visiting scholars, and denominational study papers and theological explorations. These are classes that all members can enjoy.
Remember that Wednesday evenings are Faith’s new default Christian education evening, and so there are other classes currently running concurrently for new members, confirmands, younger kids, and those who need child care.
