SUNDAY MORNING LEARNING
September to May
Sunday School, 3 yr olds -5th Grade: Kids grow into the life of the church through the “Whirl” lectionary-based curriculum. Every lesson follows a four part sequence: Welcome, Hear, Respond, and Launch. Each week kids and leaders start their time together by identifying where they are in the church year and watching an animated video to set up the lesson. Next they dive into the Whirl Story Bible or the Whirl NRSV Bible together, respond to the scripture lesson with creative activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before begin sent out.
6th – 8th Grades: These are our Confirmation age youth. We are using the Sparkhouse “CoLaborate curriculum.
This material focuses on the Old and New Testaments, Lutheran History & Catechism and Lutheran Living. Classes meet in Holmer Hall. Youth do not need to be enrolled in the Confirmation program to attend Sunday morning classes.
High School Youth Ministry: Our High School students meet in “The Shack” on Sunday mornings. They have been using Faith Lens, a publication of the ELCA Youth Ministry Network that provides weekly Bible studies to engage youth in connecting world events with the Bible, faith, and everyday life.
