Children and Youth
"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6"
Word On Wednesday (WOW) is specifically designed to help our young ones grow in faith.
Q. Why Wednesdays and not Sundays?
- Sundays is a day for worship and for resting. We encourage families to attend the worship service together and then spend some time talking about the service and the sermon whether at the dinner table or while relaxing, without adding any more scheduling items.
On Wednesday evenings, we set aside time for the children and youth without feeling rushed. Plus we are also able to encourage fellowship between the different age groups which helps build up the next generation of believers.
Q. What is the schedule for WOW?
A. Our event starts off at 5:30 pm with a simple supper (provided) for all, followed by time of teaching, crafts and activities. We conclude our evening activities by 7 pm.
Preschool - 5th Grade
Jr. High - 6th through 8th Grade Confirmation
High School - 9th through 12th Grade.
All teachers and aides are members of our congregation and are screened. Our children are always in groups and in spaces where there is always adult supervision.
Children and Youth curriculum varies between topics and books of the Bible. We also teach Luther's Small Catechism as a part of our ongoing curriculum.
