Education

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. - Hebrews 10:24-25
Confirmation

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. - 2 Peter 1:2-4

Junior Confirmation

Junior confirmation is a 2 year study for students in the 6th and 7th grades.  The curriculum consists of the Holy Bible, Luther’s Small Catechism, and an accompanying workbook.  One year the workbook covers the books of the Bible, and the other year it has an overview of the Small Catechism.  Junior Confirmation meets weekly on Wednesday night at 7:00 PM.

After 2 years of instruction in the Lutheran faith, and doctrine, the student is ready for confirmation.

 

Adult confirmation

An adult instruction class is offered for adults interested in the Lutheran faith.  We have a 10 week study which overviews the Bible, Lutheran doctrine, and Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.  Individual instruction is also available.

Bible Studies

Hearing the preaching of the Word on Sunday is of vital importance and participating in Sunday school instruction is a tremendous blessing. Yet, we know that there is no such thing as too much Scripture in our lives.  We encourage you to commit to any bible study opportunity you are able to attend.  This is for your edification and ours, and also so that we may grow in community as the people of God.

Currently we have a Wednesday night Bible Study for women being held in the Fellowship Hall from 7:00-8:00PM. Topics such as Women of the Bible, Prayer, and subjects that are of interest to women have been studied.  Currently, we are studying a book entitled, “Bless These Lips – 40 Days of Spiritual Renewal” by Sharla Fritz is being studied. 

Sunday School

Sunday school is offered every Sunday for all children, starting with Pre-K, concurrent with Adult Bible Study. An opening devotion with songs, Bible reading, and prayer gathers everyone together before classes begin. Each Sunday, we also acknowledge the people having birthdays during that week. The children then break off into age groups for grade-appropriate lessons. We use the following curriculum:

Children's Christmas Program

The Children’s Christmas Program is a wonderful, annual tradition at Our Savior. This program is always held on the last Sunday before Christmas.  The Children’s Christmas Program engages our Youth in the narrative of Jesus’ birth through words and song, while giving them the unique opportunity to share that message with our congregation and visitors.
