St Olaf is here to assist you in the Christian Education process for your family. However, you are the most important influence on your child’s faith. We are here to equip you to help instill faith in your child and to help your faith journey as well. If we can be of any assistance to you or your child in this adventure of faith, please contact us.

Sunday School meets September through May and uses Living the Word curriculum. Our classes learn what the Bible teaches and how it relates to our lives. The lessons each week are the same as the Scripture readings in Worship, so all ages are studying the same lesson each week.
In addition to our curriculum, students in Sunday School are focused on learning The Lord’s Prayer, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Ten Commandments from the small catechism. These are foundational pieces of our faith. Memorizing during the youngest years is a great foundation so students are ready to learn more about what these pieces mean as they grow older. Please encourage your child to learn these basics at home as well.
When possible, students are given the opportunity to be a servant by helping others. This kind of care and compassion for the people around us, near and far, is the mission of St. Olaf Lutheran Church, “Sharing God’s Love, Caring for Community”.
We are always looking for help in our Sunday School classrooms! The lessons are easy to follow, and you do not have to be an expert at the Bible to be a wonderful teacher.
Bibles are used in every part of our education program. Students are welcome to bring their bible to class, but we do have some in the classroom as well. The women’s group of our church (Women of Grace) donates a Bible to each third-grade student. Bibles are also available for new students to our congregation. The Bible class for students and parents is usually two Sundays in the fall.
We look forward to our faith journey with your family.
We offer First Communion classes for 4th & 5th graders each spring with First Communion being celebrated on Maundy Thursday.
