Our Sunday School classes will be using the Enduring Faith Bible Curriculum which is the third unit in the series from Concordia Publishing House.  

The theme for this year is from Galatians 5:22-23.  “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no law.”  Each month one of the ‘Fruits of the Spirit’ will be highlighted.

We will continue where we left off with a parent-led youth group. Each month parents will host a youth outing, Bible study, project, craft, etc. Our first meeting will be in January 2022.
