Preschool - 5th Grade children gather each Sunday between worship services at 9:15 am.
The preschool/kindergarten class hears basic Bible stories, does a craft or sometimes has a puppet show that pertains to the story along with age appropriate songs.
First – 5th grade uses Spark Rotation which is a hands-on curriculum led by workshop leaders. Each lesson is taught with a different weekly rotation where the children learn the lesson through art, cooking, Bible skills and games, science, or music.
This group (youth entering 6th, 7th & 8th grades) meets for learning time from 6:00 to 7:00 pm on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month during the school year. Summer activities and service events are also planned each year.
The Sunday evening faith formation program uses a Bible based curriculum to help kids understand and embrace a world that is bigger than they are. We strive to help them engage in a way that honors God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while also guiding them through spiritual practices of prayer and discernment. Questions are encouraged!
They are also encouraged to participate in worship and serve by helping with the younger classes during Education Hour at 9:15 am on Sundays.
The high school age youth meet with Erik Williams, the youth director, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month during the school year. Erik also leads the high school youth in a weekly discussion on Sundays between worship services at 9:15 am.
At these gatherings, Erik strives to bring Jesus to life for the kids, by talking about why their faith and the Bible are relevant in their daily lives. He discusses topics like cliques, parents, peer pressure, sharing your faith, following God, and more. Contact our Youth Director, Erik Williams, with questions or to join the fun!
Erik also plans special outings, service events, weekend retreats and backpacking weekends during the summer.
2017-18 Youth Ministry Service Project
We are entering our third year of supporting God’s Global Barnyard. In the past, our Sunday school offering has gone toward the purchase of baby chicks, honeybees and piglets through ELCA’s Good Gifts, a long-term sustainable solution that makes a difference in people’s lives around the world.
This year our goal is goats! Children can make a difference by reflecting God’s love through their gifts. Goats are valuable for living in dry, drought-prone climates. Fresh milk from a goat provides good nutrition for children who are growing.
All are Invited!
If you don’t have a home church, we hope you will consider discovering the welcoming church community at LCHS. You are invited to share in the experience!
