At Christ Lutheran Church, we realize that the church is not a building or a specific place. The church IS people and relationships and our faith formation does not just happen inside these walls, but also in our own homes and communities. We are here to help equip families to develop good faith practices at home.
Faith Growers (Ages 3 through Grade 4)
Classes currently on hold due to COVID-19.
Through age-appropriate lessons, children learn the stories of the bible and how these stories impact our lives. Each Sunday, our kids attend a class, of same-age peers, that are designed to incorporate music, art, cooking, games and much more to help them learn how to live their lives like Jesus. The small class sizes encourage relationship building with same-age peers our kids care with them for the rest of their lives. The classes are taught by congregation members that care about the future of the church and take the time to form strong relationships with the kids. They become a trusted adult for each and every one of your kids.
Middle School (Grades 5-8)
The Middle School youth meet in an interactive and family-oriented program called Journey, currently via Zoom.
High School (Grades 9-12)
Our high school youth enjoy meeting every Sunday during the Education Hour, and also with several fun outings throughout the year (bowling, snow tubing, “kidnapping” the incoming class, and many more). The high schoolers are involved in service projects throughout the year, including baking pies for The Caring Center at Thanksgiving and going on a domestic mission trip. The youth are given the opportunity to attend an ELCA National Youth Gathering during their high school years.
During our Education Hour on Sunday mornings, adults are welcome to join in the lively discussions in our Adult Education Classes, covering topics that include the Bible, baptism, communion, the Holy Spirit, parables (stories) taught by Jesus, faith in everyday life, forgiveness, and how to understand and receive God’s grace. These classes are occurring over Zoom; see the weekly eNews for the links.
