Grace provides several opportunities for children to continue their Christian education.
Junior High Catechism (Confirmation) Class
Children in the 7th and 8th grades attend weekly classes in Christian doctrine. These classes prepare the young people to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The classes begin after Summer vacation and continue until Palm Sunday. On that day, the 8th graders are confirmed and receive their first Communion on the next Thursday (Maundy Thursday).
A Ministry sharing the Gospel with young people through celebration, growing and serving. The aim is to teach our youth to be virtuous people and good Christians. Activities include service projects and fun outings around town and state.
Boys aged 10 and older may serve as acolytes during the Divine Service. Pastor trains the acolytes and they work directly under his supervision. During the service they light and extinguish the candles. They also hand the collection plates to the ushers.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, in June or July, the congregation sponsors a week-long Vacation Bible School for children from kindergarten age through grade 6. The children work hard, play hard and learn about their Savior during this time.
