Sunday School is held every Sunday morning during the education hour, 9:45-10:30 a.m. (Sept - May). All students gather together in our fellowship hall at 9:30 a.m. for music, snacks, and games, then are dismissed to their classes at 9:45 a.m. We have a curriculum and milestone or goal for each grade level:
Together in Faith - a milestone based curriculum where each class has a milestone to reach by the end of the school year. Each class has a chance to participate in worship during our "Milestone Worship Service" at the end of May.
towards Bible camp at Sugar Creek or any ELCA Bible Camp this summer to those entering 3RD grade and above!
E.L.C. Week: July 5-10
If at all possible, we have claimed July 5-10 as English Lutheran Church Week. You are welcome to sign your child up for any week of the summer - but we are trying to get as many campers from ELC that week as we can as the ELC staff will be visiting and volunteering at camp regularly that particular week.
Provide Niki Pohnl with a copy of your registration for the summer and a $100 payment will be sent to camp in your child’s name!
English Lutheran Church formed a planning committee to come up with ideas to help 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students become better acquainted. We named this group “The PACK” – Pre-comfirmation Activities at Church for Kids.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity for our youth students to build on their relationships with one another, God, and their church family. Many of the students in our Sunday school classes don’t go to the same public school. We wanted to give them the opportunity to really get to know each other, as it is hard to do in the 45 minutes we have on Sunday morning. Isn’t it easier to join or attend something when you know who will be there?
We have planned gatherings once a month October-April that run from 6:30-8:30pm here at English Lutheran Church. This is designed for our 4th, 5th and 6th grade students only and our agenda will be as follows:
6:30-6:45 Prayer/Devotions from one of our Pastors
6:45-8:00 Activity planned for the evening
8:00-8:25 Snack and “social hour”
8:25-8:30 Closing Prayer
February 28th - Bingo Night
March 27th - Movie Night
April 24th - Game Night
We also look to parents to volunteers as chaperone, provide snacks or provide juice. This is a great opportunity for your children!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Every year we start our summer with Vacation Bible School. We offer a morning Pre-School program for children ages 3-5, and we invite Sugar Creek Bible Camp staff to work with children entering grades 1-5. The week is filled with energy, new songs, and a great Bible study curriculum. VBS provides a wonderful ministry to children! Vacation Bible School for 2020 will be June 15-19 and it will be Camp on the Go!
Due to the current circumstances, we are doing things a little different this year. VBS will still take place the week of June 15-19. We will provide four days worth of stories, crafts, games, science experiments, and music for you to participate in with your child. We will be recording a YouTube video to correspond with each day's activities (they are going to be SUPER fun!). Kits will be available to pick up with easy instructions on June 10-11-12.
VBS is for ALL ages and is a great way to enhance faith conversations in your home and something "pre-planned" for your kids. There will be two programs offered - 1) 3 years-Kindergarten with videos produced through English Lutheran and 2) 1st grade an older with videos produced through Sugar Creek Bible Camp. This offers families flexibility to participate in this program with your kids any time of day or have an activity ready for babysitters. The kits are free!
We encourage you to consider this opportunity to bring faith into you home in such a fun way! REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS JUNE 3RD!
