All Saints Lutheran Church

2 San Marin Drive, Novato, CA 94945

All Saints Lutheran Church provides a variety of activities and programs for children of all ages.  Examples:

 

spark story bibleSpark Sunday School

Children are invited to learn about Jesus in a special half-hour education gathering on the second and third Sundays of each month, from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall.  This program uses the Spark Story Bible, which tells children about God in short, age-appropriate stories that everyone will love.  Some of the stories were written by a pastor who grew up in our very own congregation!

 

Slider 4Jesus Pizza

Every Thursday noon during the school year, high school students from San Marin High School are invited (and allowed) to walk over to All Saints for pizza lunch, served by members of the congregation.  This special ministry started in 1995 with a half dozen students; today we serve more than 100  weekly.

Pizza, salad and beverages cost $2.  No reservations are required, and no one is pressured to talk about Jesus.  The name “Jesus Pizza” was created by the students themselves, and the Fellowship Hall vibrates with love and laughter during this hour of fun.

Communion CupsBaptism, Communion and Confirmation instruction

Baptism into the community of Jesus Christ is offered to infants and children as soon as their parent(s) and sponsor(s) are ready to support them in prayer, study and worship.

Children are welcome to come to the communion table, and will receive a special blessing until they are old enough to receive the bread and wine, which we believe are the body and blood of Jesus Christ.  Special instructions are offered to children who are old enough to understand the importance of this meal in their lives as growing Christian children.

When children are older – typically in middle school – they are offered additional instructions in the Bible, Lutheran expression, and Christian commitment, so that they may publicly affirm their baptism and take their place as adults in the congregation.
