Children in Worship

Kids are always welcome in worship, especially for their unique energy and genuine love of life! We offer a children’s sermon, a children’s bulletin, and coloring materials to better engage our youngest ones and help them understand the Bible is for them. 

Sunday School really is cool!

Children 3 years of age – 5th grade are invited to attend Sunday School during our second worship service from 10:15-11:15 am throughout the program year(mid-September-May).  The children enter the sanctuary during Holy Communion for a blessing and join their families in worship for the rest of the service. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL STARTS SEPTEMBER 19!

Sign up for Sunday School by completing our online registration form. You only have to fill it out once!

About Our Children's Ministry

Vacation Bible Camp (VBC)

At GLC, we offer a Vacation Bible CAMP experience in the summer! Our camp counselors lead campers in Bible stories, games, songs, skits, and crafts. Full-day camp is offered for students entering 1st-5th grades, and mini-camps are offered for students entering preschool and kindergarten. VBC generally takes place the first week of August. 

Contact children@genevalutheran.org for more information.

First Communion
We celebrate First Communion starting in 3rd grade (or older). Holy Communion is a physical sign of God’s love for all believers, even our elementary-aged children. We believe our nine year-olds can experience the Good News of Jesus in their personal lives through this sacrament. We teach First Communion theology and lessons in our Sunday School education. These classes specifically will run in January and February each year during the Sunday School hour. Since Holy Communion is an important part of worship, families need to be attending worship regularly before beginning classes.

Baptism

Baptism is an opportunity to celebrate God’s love and grace. Lutherans do baptize infants (and older children and adults), believing that it is God’s action and love pouring over us rather than our own efforts. You do not need to be a member to celebrate a baptism at Geneva Lutheran.
