Sunday School - Preschool & Elementary

At First Lutheran we strive to make Sunday school a place where children experience the unconditional love of God and the joy that comes with it. Through teaching, music and service projects they learn what it means to be a follower of Christ.

Sunday School

PreK thru 5th grade
We have a dedicated staff of teachers who make a year-long commitment, offering consistency for the students. Our teachers are carefully screened and background checked. 

Sunday School starts at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall every Sunday. 

You are welcome to drop-off starting at 9:15 a.m. 

Children are brought back into worship with their families or to sit with their class in the first two left pews at around 10:15 a.m. right before communion.

Little Lambs (PreK): September 17, 2023

Each year we welcome our newest preschoolers (age 3) to join the Little Lambs class for Sunday school! The little lambs and their parents are welcomed in church by the congregation, the pastor, and their teachers, given a blessing and a little lamb and then head off to their first Sunday School class!

"You are Created in the Image of God" Self Portrait Gallery (K/1st Grade): January 2024 in the Gathering Place

Our Kindergarteners and first graders are learning in Sunday School that they are created in the image of God and that they are image bearers of that awesome and amazing God out in the world. We recognize this publicly with a self-portrait gallery on display in the month of January in our Gathering Place.

The Lord's Prayer (2nd Grade): February 18, 2024

Our second graders are learning The Lord's Prayer in Sunday School each week. They will lead the congregation in this prayer at the 9:30 a.m. service on February 18th. 

First Communion (3rd Grade):  March 24, 2024

First Communion instruction happens in the Spring of third grade for our youth. Part of the 3rd grade Sunday school curriculum includes instruction on Passover and the Last Supper, which provides the background for further instruction with our faith formation leadership and parents. Some youth might feel moved to begin receiving communion prior to 3rd grade and that should include a conversation with the pastor and parents. If you have a child that is older than third grade that would like to take First Communion, please email for more information.

First Bibles (4th grade): October 29, 2023

At the beginning of each year, we recognize our 4th graders as they are beginning to grow more in their faith and relationship with God. The fourth graders are not just given their first student bibles, they are also learning the books of the Bible and learning about the different genres and audiences of the Bible throughout their fourth grade Sunday school class. 

Apostle's Creed and the Ten Commandments (5th grade): April 21, 2024

Our fifth graders are learning The Apostle's Creed and Ten Commandments in Sunday School. They will lead the congregation in The Apostle's Creed at the 9:30 a.m. service on April 21st.

Additional Opportunities for Children                     

There are numerous additional opportunities for younger children to be involved in the First Lutheran community. Please visit our music page to learn about bell choir opportunities and our Gallery of Living Art page.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2024

June 10-14, 2024, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Current Preschoolers to 4th grade

Welcome to Camp Firelight! Camp Firelight is based on Psalm 56:3 "Whenever I'm afraid, I put my trust in you." This verse reminds us that we can trust God no matter what challenges we face in life. Camp Firelight invites us to put our trust in God in every situation, including during times when we might be afraid. Our Campers will explore timeless Bible stories that show how Old and New Testament Campers trusted God in the face of their own fears and went on to do great things in God’s name.
