Education

Little Pilgrims Preschool

An outreach of Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Little Pilgrims Preschool has earned a reputation for excellence.  For more information on Little Pilgrim’s Preschool, please contact Ruth Rhodes or visit our Little Pilgrims Preschool page.

Sunday School

Sunday School runs from Rally Day (the Sunday after Labor Day) until the Sunday before Memorial Day Weekend in May. 
For youth in preschool to high school, please register for the current year’s programs. (form is below)

Cross+Generational Sunday School

Join us on the first Sunday of the month for Cross+Gen Sunday School. This is a time to intentionally focus on building relationships between members of different generations. We call this time Cross+Generational because it is indeed across the generations that we come together at the cross of Jesus Christ.

Join us as we learn and laugh together!

J.A.M.

“JAM” (Jesus And Me) is our Sunday School program and is offered weekly from 10:15-11:15 AM (Sept. – May) for all kids preschool through fifth grade.  

We use the multi-age “Feasting on the Word” curriculum which allows for a variety of learning and teaching styles. All lessons and activities connect the scripture read in church. Each person in your family will hear the same message and, therefore, the scripture and meaning can be applied at home and out in the community during the week.

We begin each week with prayer, birthday songs, exploring the Bible and making connections with each other.

Please contact Kim Waterstraat for details.

Middle & High School Sunday Morning

On Sunday mornings, from 10:15-11:15, Pilgrim’s middle and high school youth are invited to a wide variety of learning experiences.

The second Sunday of the month, we are together in the Eagle’s Wing. This looks different each month – from scavenger hunts around the church, to Bible trivia, to group challenges.

The third Sunday of the month, we go out for coffee! We go to Cool Bean and enjoy time together playing games, laughing, and checking in with each other.

The fourth Sunday of the month, we split between high school and middle school. High school youth will dive into a Faith Lens, Bible studies that engage youth and young adults in connecting world events with the Bible, faith, and everyday life. Middle school youth will dig into Bible stories and learn why these stories of old are still relevant today!

On the rare fifth Sunday of the month, we will join with the J.A.M. in doing mission projects together.

For more information please contact Shannon Fleischfresser.

Confirming Faith

What is confirmation? Confirmation is a time for youth to learn what promises their families made on their behalf when they were baptized.  It is also a time for asking questions about faith, life, and who God has created them to be, as they discover what they believe.  At the end of the confirmation journey, confirmands will be invited to state what they believe as they make promises to God, and take faith as their own.

At Pilgrim Lutheran Church, we have decided on a retreat-based confirmation program that is experiential, relational, and grounded in scripture. It is a 3-year program that youth are eligible to start once they have reached 6th grade.

We know that life is not always ideal. One of the benefits of this type of program is that we can work with families on a more personal basis to fit the needs of your family – including being part of Confirmation even if you are beyond middle school!

For more information on Confirmation, please contact Shannon Fleischfresser.
