A traditional classroom Sunday School for all ages

Preschool through elementary-aged children meet for Sunday School opening in the Nave (sanctuary) at 9am for a brief lesson from Pastor & some singing.  Our Sunday school children sing as a children's choir during the regular worship service several times each year.

Growing in Christ follows a same-age classroom model so students learn and grow in faith alongside their peers.  Together, they explore the Bible, draw connections to the Small Catechism, and learn the traditions of the Lutheran Church.  Each week, students across all age levels explore the same Bible story. 

Junior high & high school students meet in the Shepherd of the Hills Youth room at 9am for a study and discussion related to the Christian worldview and apologetics.

Confirmation Class

The confirmation class is a 2 year course for children in the 6th and 7th grades (mature 4th and 5th graders may also join confirmation class, if parents and Pastor believe they are ready).  Students are taught the basics of the Christian faith using the 6 chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism:  The Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, Holy Baptism,  Confession and the Sacrament of the Altar.  

Shepherd of the Hills Youth (SHY)

Shepherd of the Hills Youth (SHY) is for young people from 5th grade through high school. This group meets to plan activities and service projects. They also hold a monthly Bible Study. It is an opportunity for Christian young people to form friendships within the congregation, do fun activities and go on outings

Vacation Bible School  


The third week of July we host Vacation Bible School.  We use Concordia's fun, realistic Bible-based programs that are built with a message that lasts, engaging and enriching kids for a lifetime.  After the craft glue dries and the snacks are just crumbs, the treasure remains that children leave knowing their need for a Savior--and His name is Jesus.  No fairy tales needed at this VBS.  Now that's a VBS with Purpose! 

VBS 2021 is Rainforest Explorers: Jesus Leads the Way! It’s easy to get lost. That’s why we need Jesus! At Rainforest Explorers VBS, learn how Jesus is our ultimate guide in the rainforest and in life. He leads us to the treasure of eternal life, and He’ll never leave us!

Registration is open for ages 4 yrs through 6th grade who will attend VBS from July 12 to July 16, 9:00 a - 12 noon. Come along with us as we sing fun songs, do crazy crafts, eat yummy snacks, play awesome games, and more.  Can’t wait to see you there!
