They have a chance to learn about Jesus, play outside, make new friends, and grow in their relationship with God. If you registered last year and have a credit you will still need to register. Check out Green Lake Lutheran Ministries’ website for more information, https://www.gllm.org/
August 16 – 18 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. for 5th – 7th Grade. Cost is $50 per child.
Mystery Bus is a mini-mission trip for students in 5th – 7th grade. It is called Mystery Bus because the students will not know what they are doing until they arrive at the church. Each day we do a service project and a fun activity. In past years we have served at Global Health Ministries, Wings, Common Cup Backpack Program, and Green Lake Lutheran Ministries. We have gone to Valleyfair, Kerfoot, Big Stone Mini Golf, and Vertical Endeavors.

Kids come to hang out, play games, eat snacks, and learn about God. Like 56er’s during the school year, all are welcome!
Sunday School is offered to children 3 years old through 6th grade. We are using a curriculum written by our very own members who know the kids and the ways they learn best. The children learn about the Bible passage for the week in their classrooms through fun and interactive games, stories, crafts, science, and snacks. Children start Sunday School off with Faith Rocks Worship where they will sing fun Christ-centered songs and hear about the days’ lesson.
The link to 2021-2022 Sunday School registration is coming soon.
Faith Seeds – This is a time during the 10:10 a.m. services when children of all ages are invited to come forward for a lesson geared towards them. Parents are invited to come up with their children.
Sprouts – This is a time during the 10:10 a.m. service sermons (immediately following Faith Seeds) when children ages three-year-old through 1st grade, may join a leader for an age-appropriate lesson on the sermon text. Children will return to their parents shortly after the sermon ends. If you are interested in helping with Sprouts on occasion please contact the Children’s Director.
Activity Bags and Children’s Bulletins – these are available for children to use during the services. They can be found at the front and back of the sanctuary and both the right and left entrances to the foundation.
Wednesday Morning Release Time (For youth in 2nd – 5th Grade)
Children have the opportunity to be released from their normal class schedule at school once a week (Wednesdays) for an hour to learn more about their faith and grow in fellowship with one another. This hour of time will include things such as crafts, games, Bible study, music, and snacks. Students walk from school to Faith and back with adult supervision so they should dress appropriately for the weather.
56er’s is an after-school group for 5th and 6th graders on Wednesday. Children are invited to come to Faith once school is finished and enjoy games, fellowship, snacks, and lessons about God. A bus will drive the 6th graders over from the Middle School and the 5th graders can walk over from Park Elementary. All are welcome!
Faith Family Fun is a monthly event for families of all ages to join in fellowship with others. Past events have included Parents Night Out, sledding, bowling, Faith at the Lake, pumpkin carving, hayrides, Fall Extravaganza and so much more!
B-2-3 is a meeting during the educational hour on the third Sunday of each month where parents and their little ones can come together for fellowship and learn how to incorporate their faith into the home to help their toddlers and babies grow in faith.
