Sunday School is held each Sunday during the school year. Children and youth are excused from the worship service following Communion for Sunday School. Sunday School usually lasts about 45 minutes. Parents continue with the worship service and then are invited to visit with other members during Coffee Hour until the Sunday School session ends.
A special curriculum is selected by our Education Committee each year to provide the children and youth with material to learn about and develop their faith.
Seventh and eighth graders meet for weekly confirmation classes. During their two-years of Confirmation classes they read and discuss the main teachings of the Lutheran faith: The Lord’s Prayer, The Ten Commandments, The Apostles’ Creed, Holy Baptism, and Holy Communion. At the end of two years, those students meeting the requirements are confirmed as members of the Holy Spirit congregation.
Our children and youth have a number of opportunities for learning, philanthropy and fun in addition to Sunday School and Confirmation classes. The children present a Christmas program during Advent, hold fund-raisers and collections for the community and participate in other activities planned by the older youth and the Education Committee.
