The youth program at Cross Lutheran has grown every year. Our goal is to continue growing our youth programs engaging children from age 4 all the way into their adulthood. Below are the programs for youth from Sunday School all the way to Confirmation and beyond.

Sunday School starts at 10:15 am, each week from September to May. During the summer months, Faith at Home kits and Sunday School at Home learning plans are available.

Sunday School

We use the Spark Curriculum from Augsburg Fortress. To learn more about this curriculum, please visit https://www.wearesparkhouse.org/.

Spark is designed to fit all the different ways kids learn.

Kids learn about their faith in different ways. Some kids learn best through hands-on STEAM activities. Other kids learn best through writing and reading activities. Still others learn best through a combination of activities. Spark has been designed by children’s education experts to accommodate all the different ways kids learn. Kids explore their faith through interactive activities and games, colorful lesson leaflets, creative art projects, and engaging music.

Each week, all kids explore the same Bible story, with each classroom using an age-appropriate focus. We will be walking through key Old Testament and New Testament lessons throughout the year.

Spark empowers kids to interact and engage with the Bible.

Kids open the Bible and engage with God’s Word each week. With this program, each child will receive their own SPARK BIBLE!

Faith Milestones

Milestone Ministry is a youth centered program that is designed to encourage our youth’s journey of faith from birth through adulthood.

How does it fit in with our youth?
This is the 5th year Cross Lutheran has implemented our Milestone Ministry into our youth programs! We are celebrating and nurturing future generations to celebrate each step of “faithing” with their home and church families.

The 4-year-olds and 5th graders receive their “new” bibles every September. Other milestones celebrated include: First Communion with bread baking and chalice decorating, learning what it means to be Lutheran, about our friendship with Jesus, receiving prayer pillows and buddies along with celebrating our graduates and milestone in adulthood-getting a new job, having a child, retirement…
