Religious Instruction

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered at 10:45 am for 3 years old through 12th grade from Rally Day in September through May. We also have special programs at Christmas. Classes are offered for adults both at 9:45 am and 10:45 am. Call the church office to inquire about class schedule at (330)‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎ 782-8109.

First Communion

First Communion instruction is available for third graders during Lent, but all who feel ready to commune may come. Students will participate in a variety of activities including meeting with the Pastor and going on a overnight trip to Camp Frederick in Rogers, Ohio. Students will explore with the Pastor the Old Testament background for communion, the New Testament roots, and prepare to receive their first communion. At Camp Frederick they will gather with children from other Lutheran congregations, deepen their understanding of communion, participate a Passover Seder, and be involved in a campfire, games and fun in the woods. The intent of the program is that students come to know and experience the joy and peace gained through receiving Holy Communion.

Confirmation

Confirmation is intended for 7th and 8th graders.  The purpose of our confirmation program is to help each baptized child mature into a deeper relationship with God.  We want our young people to accept Jesus’ call to be and make disciples; learning how to know Him and His voice and to follow Him.  We use four ways to achieve this purpose: Worship, Study, Service, and Fellowship. Students participate in “worship” and take sermon notes. The “study” portion involves both midweek and Sunday classes. Throughout the year our young people will participate in “service” projects, both individually and together.  For “fellowship” students are expected to participate in youth group, camp or other retreats during the year.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is held one week each summer. It is open for 4 year olds through completed 5th grade. Students enjoy singing, crafts, snacks, recreation and learning about God's awesome Word, in a fun relaxed environment. VBS is free and open to the whole community.

Adult Bible Study

Bible Studies are available for singles and couples, men and women. We come together to build 
a community of friends and learn about God's work in our lives.
