Christian Education

Sunday School

Our Sunday School meets during the School Year on the first and second Sundays of each month at 11am after worship. Students explore their faith by singing, praying, learning Bible stories, making crafts, and participating in other activities. Children ages four and up are welcome to attend in our multi-age, family style class. Sunday School is held on the second floor of the Parish House, the white building with rocking chairs on the porch next door to the sanctuary.

For the safety of our whole community, we require teachers to file for regular background checks and two teachers are always present with our class.

Adult Education

Adult Education is offered at 11am after worship, simultaneously with Sunday School.

This October in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Pastor Emily will offer introductory sessions about Lutheran history and theology.

In November, different lay leaders will teach us about how their faith influences their lives and areas of expertise.

Past classes have included:

  • Lutheranism 101 and 102
  • Social work and faith
  • Melake Tekle of Eritrea, presented by the author of a book on his life
  • Life and faith in Namibia, presented by a local PhD student

Bible Basics: No Experience Necessary

Wrestling with a troublesome text?
Feel out of your depth when you open the Bible?
Wondering how to approach scripture at all?

Us, too.

Beginning in October, Pastor Emily will offer two Bible Basics groups on Thursdays at 7pm and Sundays at 11am (except those Sundays when other programming is held). We will learn together about ways to study the Bible, types of texts, where they came from, and what God has to say to us through them today. People of deep faith and no faith, great knowledge of the Bible and none at all are welcome. Bring a Bible if you have one, an open mind, and an open heart.

Additional Opportunities

Additional seasonal events and craft opportunities for all ages are offered and have included:

  • Advent crafts
  • Christmas pageants
  • Lenten studies
  • Holy Week story walks
