At Christ Lutheran, we value Christian Education for all ages. Adults have opportunities to learn through Bible study on Sunday mornings (held right after worship). Most importantly, we emphasize learning for our young people, which happens both at church and in the home.
Children develop physically, emotionally, and spiritually each year of their lives, and we want to be a resource for parents in that development, especially the spiritual aspects. To that end, we offer age-appropriate learning on Sunday mornings from birth through 12th grade. This is a flexible learning environment, allowing each student to learn at their own pace while also giving space for new members to jump in at any age.
As children and youth complete various milestones in their faith development, we will celebrate their accomplishments with a presentation of a certificate and a gift. These gifts include picture and story books, age-appropriate Bibles, Luther’s Small Catechism (foundational in the Lutheran church), prayer journals, and more.
Along with these church-based activities, throughout the year we offer short-term (3 to 8 week) parent classes based on the ages of their children. There is a class for each year of a child’s life, from birth to 12th grade, focusing on how to raise children in the faith. We believe that faith is “caught” more than it is “taught,” and we want to support parents in sharing their faith with their children.
