Each January, we celebrate those who have been baptized in the past year with a special worship service and brunch, reminding us that we are a community of faith, growing in our faith together.
In keeping with our baptismal promise to provide children with the Holy Scripture, Faith Lutheran gives Bibles to youth three different times:
Three-year olds receive a Storybook Bible in January as we celebrate Jesus’ Baptism. They also design a personalized tote bag for carrying their Bible to and from Sunday school, Grandma’s house, etc.
Third grade students receive a Student NRSV Bible in September. Following the service, a luncheon for the students and their families is served and they receive an orientation on how to use their Bible in their everyday lives.
Students in 5th grade receive a Study Bible in preparation for beginning confirmation. They will bring this each Wednesday evening throughout the three year confirmation instruction.
Communion for Beginners (Pre-K through 4th grade) We are excited to offer a Communion for Beginners class for kids ages 3 (Pre-K) through 4th grade who are interested in receiving communion, parents are welcome to attend. Please join us during Seeds+Sprouts on Wednesday, February 23rd, to learn all about and prepare for this very special part of worship and our Christian faith. This is not mandatory, and it will be left up to the discretion of parents to determine at what age their child is ready to start receiving communion. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact Pastor Seyward.
As students begin 7th grade, they also begin our Confirmation Program. Students will meet each Wednesday night and Sunday morning during the school year through 9th grade. Students will learn about the Bible, Martin Luther, and affirming their faith in preparation of becoming a confirmed member. The service will take place the fall of their 10th grade year.
