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: Beginning September 12
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. During this COVID surge we will be hosting Sunday school on the front lawn at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday. Children are then picked up around 10:30 a.m. from their grade tables.
Masks are required for all unvaccinated individuals in the building and highly recommended for everyone else.

Little Lambs (PreK): September 19
Each year we welcome our
newest pre-schoolers 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!
First Communion (5th Grade): April 14th, Maundy Thursday
instruction happens in the Spring of 5th grade for our youth. Part of
the 5th 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 5th grade and that should include a
conversation with the pastor and parents.
Please email email@example.com for more information.
6th and 7th grade
Youth join our weekly Wednesday Night LIGHT worship at 7pm, then meet for the remainder of the hour in their own small group time. This is considered our pre-confirmation class. Therefore, participation with the confirmation students on Wednesday night allows them to get a foretaste of the confirmation community and content, but in a way that is appropriate for their own spiritual development.
First Bibles - (6th grade): August 18th
At the beginning of
each year, we recognize our 6th graders as they transition from
elementary Sunday School into Middle School Youth Group. To help prepare
them for the affirmation of faith we equip them with new study Bibles
which they receive on the first Wednesday of the new school year during our 7 p.m. Wednesday Night LIGHT worship.
Summer 2022 Dates TBD
Kids Kamp is a daytime event that brings Preschoolers through 5th grade together for spiritual formation in the summer. Come learn and play through stories, games, crafts and snacks. Our amazing KICK team is a bit part of planning and running this event.
Vacation Bible School - VBS
Summer 2022 Dates TBD
We host our VBS in the evenings from 5-8 p.m. We eat dinner together first, then break-off into age-appropriate groups. Parents are welcome to stay for their own spiritual formation offerings or to volunteer with the kids programming! Next year's theme is not yet decided. Come and enjoy the stories, music, games, and fun! Open to all students currently in Preschool through 5th grade.
Additional Opportunities for Children

children to be involved in the First Lutheran community. Please visit our music
