Learning and Being Youth


 

Children's Ministry

 We hold our in-person sessions twice monthly, on the first and third Sundays. Our next class is March 17.

The sessions, for children in JK – Gr. 6, begin downstairs in Immanuel Hall at 10:30 a.m. for Bible stories, crafts, and other activities. Then those in the class come up to share Holy Communion. 

See Karen Bishop, co-ordinator, for more information.

  Activity sheets for each Sunday are available in the front hall and are also emailed on Thursday. To sign up for these: osimm@tbaytel.net .  

  There are Adventure activity bags under the mailboxes inside the entrance to the sanctuary, for children to enjoy during worship. 

   The seasonal activity pack for Easter/Spring will be   available in March for pick-up or drop off. For the latter, email osimm@tbaytel.net .

Confirmation

This ministry of the church helps youth to continue in the promises made at Baptism. All youth Grade 7 and older are welcome. 

We will normally be meeting on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.  Our next session is Mon. Mar. 25 (no class: Mar. 11).

Classes will be offered mostly in-person but with special times online. Hopefully we also will be able to gather from time to time with the Confirmation youth from Hilldale Lutheran Church.

 'Eternity for Today'

Copies of  the Apr.-June edition of our national church’s daily devotional booklet are now available in the front hall, and can also be dropped off.  There are no copies left for Jan.-Mar.
