Children’s Sunday School

(classes held at 11:00 a.m. at the A-frame)

We have three great options for children and youth this year. If your child has not participated in the past, we hope you will consider making this the year. If you have any questions contact Susan at ssluser@gmail.com or 390.4422.

3 yrs-4th grade: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd - a religious education program grounded in scriptural and liturgical study using tangible and self-teaching materials. All the teachers from last year are returning plus the older class has the addition of Jennifer Hermansen.
5th-8th grade: Rite 13 - two year program that focuses on celebrating the individuality of each young person and their creative potential. The students will be part of a beautiful liturgy that celebrates a rite of passage from childhood toward adulthood.
9th grade and up: Confirmation - Beginning in October, Ali Sevilla and Becca will be conducting a year long confirmation class. As part of the class, the students will take a "World Religions" pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. next summer.
1-3 yr olds - If there is demand, we'd like to offer childcare during adult Sunday school. Please contact Susan if you are interested.

Education for Ministry (EFM)

EFM, or Education for Ministry, is a program of theological education for laypeople. It is based on the belief that all baptized Christians are called to ministry, and that ministry happens every day, in all sorts of situations and interactions, whether you set out to do ministry or not. Its purpose is to ground us in the stories of the people of God and in scripture; to understand how our own stories continue theirs; to ask theological questions and look at how our lives and our culture and what we've been taught in the church influence our answers. It is made up of small groups of 6-12 people who meet weekly September through May.
