Tending to the spiritual needs of children at all ages is valuable for us, as well as drawing them into the life and relationships of the church. Throughout the year we will have various kinds of Sunday morning activities and resources for children. We welcome all ages into worship and try finding various ways to make them feel welcome through Sunday bags. Children’s sermons, and even assisting with communion. Our 6th-10th graders participate in a Wednesday evening Confirmation program and we also partner with seven other area churches for monthly service and learning activities. A number of our youth get involved in summer camp, from weekend experiences to full weeks at Camp Wapo, and a summer mission trip experience. We are always pleased to have a week dedicated to Vacation Bible School for our children, any friends they may bring and the local community.
VBS will be held Sunday night June 16th and Monday through Wednesday 9-12. We are collaborating with other East Side churches and holding this at Gustavus Adolphus Church (1669 Arcade St – West side of Lake Phalen).
