Children and Youth Registration
Children & Youth
We have classes available for children and youth from age 2 - 8th grade. We use a two-year curriculum that encourages children & youth to explore Bible stories in a hands-on, experiential way. Every fall, we explore stories from the Old Testament, and we shift to the New Testament in winter, beginning with the Advent season. Each week, kids and their leaders gather together to explore their Bibles, enjoy fun activities, pray, grow in faith, and have a blast while doing it!
We encourage our high school youth to help in our preschool and elementary classrooms. We provide them with the same training as adult leaders, and equip them to grow in faith as they lead.
Confirmation at St. Paul starts in grade 8 and follows a two-year program. The classes are typically held twice a month on Sunday evenings. It is taught by the Pastor, Vicar, Director of Children, Youth, & Family Ministry, and a lay member of the congregation. Students are confirmed in the Spring of 9th grade.
After a powerful experience to Detroit for the 2015 National Youth Gathering, our high school youth group joined forces with the youth of Lutheran Church of the Newtons for once a month fellowship, service and educational activities. We are currently working to create a more consistent schedule. Please check back frequently for scheduling and planning.
