Splash! Faith Formation from birth to age 3

Traditionally called "Cradle Roll," this ministry is aimed at our youngest members – our children from birth to the age of three.   At baptism, we as a congregation make a promise to support the baptized and their families in their spiritual journey.   Through resources offered by our congregation and Augsburg Fortress we can help parents in their role of bringing up children of God.  Splash! materials are sent out on a regular basis which offer ideas for faith-filled play, worship, meals and prayer together.  It is one way as a congregation we stay connected with young children and their families.   Read more »

Sunday School Celebration

All are invited to our Sunday School Celebration on May 15, 2016 beginning at 9:15am. We begin in the sanctuary with music and the ever popular quiz bowl. We continue the celebration party with treats in Fellowship Hall and end in time for worship at 10:30am. Parents, please join us in thanking our teachers for their time and talents in this important ministry this year. We are asking parents to help provide food for our celebration. If you can bring juice, muffins or fruit that would be great.
