Sunday School

Christ’s Kids Sunday School meets each Sunday morning at 10:45 in our Kids Room and focuses on children from Kindergarten to the Sixth Grade. Our Sunday School format is centered on proclaiming the Gospel through lessons, crafts, games and worship. We have an excellent group of adult leaders and teachers that make the lessons fun and engaging!
Children attending Sunday School get an opportunity to earn Bible bucks. Each month, we go “shopping” at the Bible bucks store where they can redeem their Bible bucks for a prize.

Children’s Church

Every other Sunday during the school year, we offer Children’s Church during the 9:30 AM Worship Service. Children’s Church engages children through song, activities and games to teach Christ centered lessons.

Middle and High School Youth Ministry

Our Middle and High School youth ministry seeks to equip and empower the next generation of Lutherans in our community and world.

Youth Confirmation
“Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community….Prior to admission to the Lord’s Supper, it is necessary to be instructed in the Christian faith (1 Cor. 11:28). The rite of confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God’s promises given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public confession of the faith and lifelong pledge of fidelity to Christ.”- Luther’s Small Catechism
Youth Confirmation is offered in 7th and 8th grade. Please contact our church office for more information.

The Reformation Lives On… A brief message from Vicar Andrew Apple 

What do you confess? What do you believe? For those of us in our 20’s and 30’s, we often do not relate to “institutional religion” at all. In fact, many of us have left the church. Yet, we also know that there is something “more” to faith than what we see in many self proclaimed Christians. We want to believe, but we have also been hurt, rejected or neglected by “religious”  friends, co workers, family members or even the “Christian culture” as a whole. Yet, most of us have no problem with Jesus. We just want something real that we can be apart of … walking together… as a community…. serving… loving and worshiping Him.

It has been 500 years since Martin Luther looked to Scripture and said… “Hey guys and gals…. something’s not right with the way we are doing things”. By the leading of the Holy Spirit, Martin found, amidst of the hypocrisy, neglect and self serving attitudes of the “religious” a profound truth in Scripture. That truth was that it is all about Jesus… what HE did and what HE has done for us.  Because of this truth, God worked through Martin to start a reformation that echos to this day.

What is still at the heart of the reformation?  Jesus.  What is at the center of our faith? Jesus. What does it mean to be Lutheran? It means that Jesus is at the center of all that we believe, confess and do.

If your looking for a church that is still all about Jesus, join us for worship or for one of our Bible studies… Still not sure? Got some questions? Check us out and find out for yourself that it is still all about Jesus.
