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.

Nursey

We also offer a staffed nursery for children 1-3 years of age during the 9 am and 10:30 am worship services. 

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. 

Contact Michelle Lata for more information.

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. 

Contact Michelle Lata 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.

Contact Pastor Trudy for more information.

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.

If you’re looking to have yourself or your child baptized at GLC, please plan on attending a baptism information class on the dates listed below.  The class will take place immediately following the 10:30 a.m. worship that Sunday. To sign up for this class, please email Michelle to begin the baptismal process at GLC.
