Children, Youth and Families

Sunday morning is the cornerstone of our life together at Grace Lutheran Church. Worship at 9:30am includes a children’s sermon, and young people participate as worship and music leaders in a variety of roles. Following worship is our education hour, starting at 10:45. Sunday school for Pre-K through 6th grade is offered weekly, and twice-monthly gatherings for Junior and Senior High Youth are also held.

The children of the Sunday School also participate in an annual Christmas pageant and occasional other worship leadership roles. A week-long, evening Vacation Bible School is held for children every summer.

Confirmation Ministry is an intentional period of faith formation for youth in grades 7-9. Confirmation Ministry includes the Sunday morning gatherings and Wednesday evening gatherings with a meal, lesson, and prayer.

Young people also participate in a variety of local and regional activities, including participation in camping ministries and in the annual Cardboard Box City homelessness awareness event at the State Fairgrounds.

Children and youth also participate in our Music Ministry. Please visit the Music Ministry page for more information about this ministry.
