Sunday Morning Education Time
Children will to gather with parents during the sermon time for parent-led, lectionary-based lessons. Younger children will be treated to a Godly Play lesson; older children who are reading will gather for a more in-depth discussion of the Gospel. There will be time for some singing and learning music; there will be times when the older children will borrow books from Pastor Christine’s lending library and read to the younger ones. This program will begin in September.
Super Service Saturdays
On the first Saturday of every month, we’d like to invite children of all ages for Super Service Saturdays. We will enjoy time to gather, play and sing. We’ll have planned a “work party” of various jobs around Bethel that need doing, a time to consider a story from our Christian faith, perhaps a game or a simple craft. Before we say goodbye for the day we’ll serve a small snack. We will also be intentional about inviting all of the kids connected to Bethel – Grandma, Grandpa – get ready for an invite.
Older Children (5th grade and older)
Together with the children of BLC, Pastor Christine will be forming what parents and grandparents may have called Confirmation Class. We will gather at a time to be determined to talk all things Bible and Luther. This is also a time for our older children to become closer to one another, participate in community service as well as ask questions of importance to them in a safe space that is not also occupied by parents. If your child is younger than fifth grade, but you think they would benefit from a little more conversation, please talk with Pastor C.
