Christian Education at First English Lutheran Church
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 9:30 a.m. — 10:30 a.m. Every Sunday
Our Christian education hour begins for children at age 3 and never ends! We believe that Bible study is a lifelong endeavor as we never "graduate" our need for God's Word. Our childre's and youth Sunday School and Bible classes begin at preschool age 3 and run through high school and college age. Our adult education opportunities proceed from there.
We pray that families will bring their children, youth and themselves to Sunday School and Bible class each week so that we can all not only continually grow in our faith but also in fellowship with a strong faith community of believers.
Each year, our Sunday School children and youth choose mission projects to support with their weekly offerings. This year, our children supported the following mission projects:
$750 to “adopt” 3 children from Haiti. This fund enable these children to attend school, provides any needed items for school including backpacks, books, shoes and also provides them an additional 5 meals per week. Most of these children only normally receive 3 meals per week when they are not in school.
$166 to purchase picture story Bibles and catechisms for families in Ghana - not only to use the books so that both parents and children can learn to read but also to learn about Jesus. With this donation, our Sunday School children purchased 33 books that have been translated into their language through Lutheran Hour Ministries.
As with all ministries, our Sunday School and Bible classes would not be successful without the support of many dedicated volunteers. This year, our ministry is once again blessed by the talents of some great teachers and support staff as follows:
Preschool (age 3)-Kindergarten: Krista Determan & Katie Kladstrup, helpers
Grades 1-2: Tricia Wempe
Grades 3-5: Nicole Staedtler
Grades 6-8: Michael Schauer & Kelly Hartmann
High School/College Bible Class: Bonnie Kabrick
Superintendents/Opening Devotions: Janet Iedema and Julie Riessen
