Sunday Morning Little Ones

Adult Study

For the little ones!  We have a wonderful volunteer-led craft time where the young ones in our congregation may gather and learn a lesson about the love of God, the hope we have for the world, and the relationships we have as people in church.  These are typically during worship, after the children's message, each Sunday Worship service at 9:30am.  

 

Due to the pandemic, this has been discontinued for the time being.  

Check back here for updates.

For those above 14 years old, we offer a bible study that typically has met after worship each Sunday.  Worship begins at 9:30am, and typically the lessons pertain to the texts we heard in worship that Sunday.  Volunteer led, we gather for study shortly after a little fellowship time after the service.  Join us, all levels of biblical literacy are welcome!

Baptism/First Communion/Confirmation

By appointment, Pastor Dave Miller will teach courses for youth and adults alike for baptism, first communion, and Confirmation at All Saints.  Please contact the

church administrator for more information.

Baptism

Baptism is something that we live.  The course covers the basics of the rite, where we enter into Christ's death and resurrection so that we die to sin and made a new creation each day.  Instruction for this is typically brief, and is not required to be completed for baptism.  

First Communion

Instruction for 1st graders and up, this is for whomever feels ready to learn about Holy Communion and receive instruction for participation in the sacrament. 

Confirmation

For the 12-14 year olds, this is the affirmation we make to God and to our community that we will live out our baptismal promises as adults.  This is typically a 1-2 year course, either online or in person.
