Faith Development for Children

We care deeply about the faith development of all people. We believe that all people are active participants in the life of our church, no matter what their age. We understand that a modern family comes in all shapes and sizes, so we strive to offer a variety of ministries to meet you where you are. Each aspect of our ministries are designed to support faithful living and faithful conversations wherever you may find yourself; whether at home, in the sanctuary, in a classroom, at work, or play.
Advent Lutheran Church is committed to providing a faithful, safe community for children and families. Providing opportunities for all members of the family to grow in their relationship with Christ is a priority. Families are encouraged to participate together in worship, take part in fellowship events throughout the year, and learn together how to talk about and share their faith with others.

Building Blocks… What can we build together?

Building Blocks are a series of mini-retreats for young families to share in a faith development experience together.

Each Building Block session will…
* Focus on a core element of our life of faith.
* Consist of two hours of storytelling, creative activities, music, and more.
* Close with a meal together.

Wonderful Wednesdays!

This is an offering for our families with children in grades 4-6 on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. We will share a simple potluck meal, have some fun, and build our faith together using Vibrant Faith at Home as a primary resource. Families will rotate hosting throughout the year. All are welcome, as well as your input!

Communion Instruction Class

Once each year, usually in the spring, Advent Lutheran Church offers communion instruction for children in grades 1-6, along with their parents.

First Bible Class

This class, for 3rd to 7th graders, usually meets in the Spring during the regular Sunday School hour for four consecutive Sundays. 

Family Bible Reading Challenge

At the time of baptism, parents, sponsors, and congregation members pledge to place in their children’s hands the Holy Scriptures, nurturing, and supporting them in faith and prayer. All of the baptized, when they affirm their baptism, promise to hear the Word of God.

Church Library

Parents: If you are looking for Christian books to read to your children, the Church Library is a good place to start!
