Education Hour Opportunties
We have educational opportunities for all ages most every Sunday morning during the school year. We meet from 10:15 - 11:15 a.m. (right after worship). From Rally Day in September until the Sunday after Mother's Day, our classes meet at different locations around the church as well all GROW in our discipleship journey.
Children (age 3 to 5th grade)
Children ages 3 (preschool) through 5th grade meet in small groups. We are currently using curriculum from Concordia Publishing. Every week we start with worship with Mrs. Hubbard in the worship center. We bring our offerings and get to sing, do motions, and sometimes dance! Then we all go to our small groups to learn about the lesson for the week. We close our session with an "Express" activity like a game, a craft or a service project. With multiple ages together in groups, it's fun to make new friends at church.
The adult class is a continuation of the coffee hour that happens immediately following worship. Grab a cup of coffee and join Pastor David as he leads through a topical study of the Bible. These studies are sometimes supplemented with videos and discussion.
Youth (grades 6-12)
During our edcuational time we plan our Youth Group events, we talk about current issues affecting our community and world, we help the Confirmation students understand what they are learning in Confirmation classes, we play games, we pray together, and we just hang out. There's no pressure and it's a safe place to bring our questions about God, the Bible, what it means to be a Christian and other stuff on our minds.
Sometimes we have special events during the Education Hour such as:
BLCW brunches for the women of the church
Receptions following Christmas concerts
All church pot-lucks for a special occasion
