EDUCATION (Youth & Adult)

Grace Lutheran Youth Education program teaches kids the basics of the Christian faith in a fun, interactive way. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings (9:15 AM to 10:15 AM) for preschool to 6th grade, with confirmation classes (7-9th grade) being held on Wednesday evenings. Parents or other family members are always welcome to sit in on any classes or activities, and friends or drop-ins are welcome too!

 

The curriculum used includes Faithweavers (younger classes) and Sola Publishing’s SEED program (older students). Both curricula are Bible-based and teach children a wide variety of stories from the Old and New Testaments. Scope and Sequences are available upon request.

 

In addition to regular classes, our students meet together monthly for fun large group activities. These usually include snacks, games, music, and crafts. Monthly activities:

  • Faith-based “Pumpkin Festival”

  • Thankful Breakfast and Pageant Practice Kickoff

  • Advent activities and Christmas Pageant

  • Christian Movie and Popcorn

  • Valentine’s card making for nursing home residents

  • Lenten pretzel-making where we learn the Christian history behind Lent (and pretzels!)

  • Holy Week Resurrection Biscuit-making and Easter egg hunt

  • Youth-led worship service and party

In the summer, Grace has a vibrant Vacation Bible School program that is open to the community and takes place in the evenings. Many church members volunteer to help with this exciting ministry!

Adult education meets most Sundays between worship services, as we grow together in God's Word and fellowship.  The coffee is on and the cooks of Grace have set a high bar in terms of refreshments!

 

There are also many other opportunities for Bible studies, at different times and locations throughout the week.  And the Grace Lutheran Church Women have various opportunities, as well, for fellowship, service, and study.

Online- Family Devotions

Parents and grandparents, have you always wanted to have family devotions with your kids or grandkids but didn't know where to start? 

 

Sola Publishing (NALC) offers a free daily devotional that you can access online at https://www.holyfamilytime.com/

 

Each week, you will explore a different Bible story, Psalm verse, and lesson from Luther's Small Catechism together. What makes this devotional different from others is that kids ask the questions, allowing adults to share their faith story with children in a natural and interactive way. Lessons are short, and can easily be done after a family meal, before bedtime, or any time that works for you!

 

Also included in the Holy Family website are videos, parent pages, children's pages, and links to other family-friendly websites. Check it out!

 
ABOUT US

Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30; ESV).
