All Saints has Christian Education programming for all ages,
including our Sunday School, middle school and high school youth as well as adults.
SUNDAY SCHOOL for preschoolers to 5th graders
Children from the age of 3 through those entering 5th grade are invited
to come up for the children's sermon during the second service and then follow
their teachers down to the Sunday School classes. The students meet in a large
group to learn a prayer, and then move to small groups to study the day's lesson.
Our SPARK curriculum is great, following the same Bible lessons
that the congregation reviews in church, which makes it easier to carry God's
Word home with us. We ask that all Sunday School participants register for
safety purposes. Registration forms are available in the main office.
CONFIRMATIONWhat is confirmation?
It is a time for children of God to explore and grow in their faith.
Who is involved in confirmation classes?
Everyone is welcome to participate in confirmation classes. Youth tend to begin
the program in sixth grade; however the program is open to all children of God.
Pastor Anderson leads the large group sessions of the class. Additional leadership
comes from small group leaders, who serve as mentors in large group activities
and guides in small group discussion.
What are the common topics they discuss?
We use Here We Stand for our confirmation curriculum, which covers sections
of Luther's Small Catechism: Ten Commandments, Apostles' Creed, Lord's Prayer,
Holy Baptism and Holy Communion, the Bible: Old and New Testaments and Lutheran
Theology and Doctrine. We apply these topics to our everyday lives in large
group and small group time.
Confirmation meets on Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm. Each unit is 10 weeks
long, plus a celebration review night, retreats, lock-ins, and other fellowship
events. We also serve the church during Advent and Lent midweek services by
being acolytes, ushers, and Lenten meal helpers. Our
confirmands attend confirmation camp for a week in the summer at Lutherdale
Bible Camp in Elkhorn, WI. If you or someone you know is interested in
learning more about our confirmation program or would like to join the
program, please contact the church office.
MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH
Fellowship activities, bible studies and service projects geared for these
age groups are planned throughout the year. Youth are updated through
church newsletters, bulletins, e-mails and a special Youth Bulletin Board
at the church.
Sunday mornings at 11:15 am: General Bible Study
Tuesday afternoons at 1:00 pm: Women's Bible Study.
