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 »

Confirmation Sunday

On Sunday, October 30, our ninth graders will publicly affirm the baptismal promises made by their parents at each child's baptism. This "Rite of Confirmation" indicates that these young people will take an important step in growing responsibility for their own faith journey and church participation.

Join us for a rich worship experience on October 30 as we also celebrate Reformation Sunday.
