Children (Infant - 6th Grade)

 

Nursery

We have a nursery located in Centennial Hall that is staffed during service on Sunday.  It is available for all children.

 

Children's Church

Children are an integral part of the worship service, and we recognize that.  During the worship service, youth are invited to the front for a special message.  From storybooks to activities, various adults lead the children's church throughout the year.  All youth, no matter their age, are invited to participate.  After the message, they are sent back to their seats (or to the nursery).

 

Activity Bags

Activity bags are hanging on the activity bag tree in the Narthex (the area before entering the sanctuary).  The bags have books, coloring pages, and more for the youth to do during the service.  When service is over, just return the bag to the tree.

 

Education

Education hour begins in September and runs through May.  Children in grades Pre-K through 6th meet altogether as a large group before breaking into smaller groups.  Children learn stories of the Bible, aspects of worship, and how to live out their faith in their daily lives.  Music, Storytelling, and other various methods are used.  Stories are taught at the beginning of the month, and activities that pertain to the story fill the following weeks.

Kids For Christ  (KFC)

Elementary children are invited to come join us on Wednesday nights from after school until 5:15.  Buses bring the youth from Worthington Middle School and Prarie Elementary to First Lutheran, where the children will have games, homework time, snack, and learn about Christ.  After 5:15, parents and families are invited to join us for a dinner (free-will donation).

Other Activities

Throughout the year, there are many opportunities for the children to come together with their church family.  Children are invited to participate in Vacation Bible School, Operation Christmas Child, Lutefisk Dinner, The Banquet, Compassion International Child Sponsor, Love Inc., Game Night, and many, many others.
