Children and Youth
JAM!!!” Jesus and Me!
Sunday School for Preschool-Tweens:
Feasting on the Word
Our curriculum series for JAM, “Feasting on the Word” connects the scripture kids hear in church to the lesson and activities they will participate in during Sunday School. This way, each person in your family will hear the same message so that the scripture and meaning can be applied at home and out in the community during the week. Each lesson will focus on four questions…
- WHAT is important to know?
- WHERE is God in these words?
- SO WHAT does this mean for our lives?
- NOW WHAT is God’s Word calling us to do?
Throughout the year, we will focus on mission projects that are local, national, and international. The curriculum and projects are designed to help children and their families grow in their relationship with Jesus!
Each week begins with birthday songs, exploring the Bible, music, and this year, each child will take home a “Verse of the Week” to memorize! Fun little prizes will be given when the verse is memorized. Please contact Kim Waterstraat at email@example.com for further information.
Pilgrim youth, facilitated by Rachelle Lessard, Duane Rhodes, and Sandy Tillotson, learn about the Bible, the Lutheran Church, and living a Christian life. After completing all of the modules (about two years), these young people will be ready to affirm their baptisms in the Rite of Confirmation. This program is geared towards 7th-8th graders (however, we welcome any student who may have missed this opportunity and who is ready to delve into a deeper study of their faith).
This program, led by Jeff Hobson, is geared toward Senior High youth who have completed the Confirming Faith program. A variety of interactive lessons will be used through the duration of the year, including Bible studies, DVDs, youth-led devotions, leadership in the church and among peers, service projects, role-modeling with younger youth, along with other things (and of course, the occasional coffee date!). Please contact Jeff Hobson for further information.
Adult Studies with Pastor Steve
Fearless, by Max Lucado: “Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear. They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, and upswings in global warming. But what if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, and doubt, what would remain?”
Sunday morning’s DVD-based study of Fearless by Max Lucado meets during the Sunday School hour (9:45-10:45) in the Fellowship Hall. Please come join us! Learn how to “trust more and fear less.”
Sunday Morning Family-Centered Study
Keeping your Kids on Gods Side by Natasha Crain is a book/scriptural study for all levels of family: parents, grandparents, guardians- you name it. Are your children facing criticism about their Christianity while they are at school, with friends, or online? Perhaps they’ve already expressed some doubts about God. This study will address those fears by examining and responding to 40 challenging questions that kids face today. Each Sunday is a new experience with different questions, so you can join in at any time. Learn how to replace their fears and doubts, with confidence, which can encourage open dialogue and equip them to defend their faith (if they have to). This group meets every Sunday morning at 9:45 in the Library (in the office area).
See you Sunday!
