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.

SUNDAY SCHOOL is for children ages 2 through 6th grade. Ages 2 through 4th grade begin in the sanctuary at 9:15 with music and then breaks into age group classes for rotations that go along with the Bible story of the week. 5th and 6th graders have class in the Youngman Room using the Connect curriculum from Sparkhouse.
