Our Youth

Our Youth

St. Olaf offers a rotational Sunday School program for youth ages 4 through 5th grade at 10:15 a.m. on Sundays – September through May. Our 6th grade class meets each week to explore what the Bible teaches and how it relates to our lives.

Vacation Bible School for preschool through 5th grade is held each August with older youth and adults leading the music, skits, teaching, crafts, snacks and games.

We offer a “Together in Faith” class for 3rd graders and their parents and present them with their own Bible during a worship service.

We offer First Communion classes for 4th & 5th graders each spring with First Communion being celebrated on Maundy Thursday.

Those students preparing to “Affirm their Baptism” (or be confirmed) come together on Sunday mornings to study the Bible, read the Word, study the Small Catechism, discuss how the Bible lessons relate to our lives today, and to encourage and lift one another up through sharing and praying together.

We meet from 10:15-11:30 a.m. September through April and our time together is varied.  Not every week is the same!  We offer experiential learning activities and events in addition to classroom time.

Students can choose the activities and service projects they want to participate in and are responsible for keeping track of their own point chart.  Students are confirmed in April after fulfilling the requirements and completing two years of taking part in the program.

Just as Christ gives us “The Invitation” to His Great Banquet, we too extend an “Invitation” to High School students to meet together on Sunday mornings during the Education Hour to pray together, share, support one another, and discuss the Bible and Hot Topics relevant to High School students. They also have opportunities to take part in service projects, the summer mission/adventure trip, and other events, including the Badger Tec, Teens Encounter Christ weekends in February and August.   http://www.badgertec.org/
