Sunday School meets from 10:30 – 11:30 on Sunday mornings, after worship service.
Children are grouped by age until they are old enough to determine a school-grade equivalent. Ages 2-3 are invited to our Tiny Tots class. Pre-K/Kindergarten classes and our 1st & 2nd grade classes engage in the SparkTM Activate Faith curriculum. The 3rd -4th -5th grade class uses a Living the Word narrative-lectionary based curriculum.
All Sunday School children have a 20-minute music rotation every Sunday morning, and sing as a group during worship services several times per year.
Annual special events for Sunday School children include:
- Rally Day kick-off with service-based activities supporting Lutheran World Relief (September)
- Christmas Program (during worship in December)
- Bible Sunday (1st and 3rd graders are gifted Bibles which align with Sunday School curriculum)
- First Communion
- Teacher Appreciation (early June)
Middle School and High School youth are invited to gather during this same time in the youth group room, where they (enjoy donuts, play ping-pong, and visit around a variety of curriculum topics. They also host coffee hour once per month and participate in our “NIU Free-lunch Mondays” lunch-packing activity.
