F.L.Y.T.E…FAITH LIFE TOGETHER! Being a preteen can be challenging! Peer pressure, stress at school and home, bullying, and so much more! What better way to face those challenges than to gather each week with other Christian
preteens who are experiencing the same thing. Our 5th and 6th graders have the opportunity to talk about issues that they’re dealing with, examine the message the world is sending them and discover what the Bible and God have to say to support them. We’re gather in the LSS room to eat, play games, share and hang out. Look for upcoming opportunities to serve and have fun as a group in addition to Sunday mornings. Come check out F.L.Y.T.E. (formerly known as Rt. 56) with Kim McConnell! F.L.Y.T.E. is held from 10:15-11:05 am. Register Now! Click here to register or you can register at the Preteen Ministry tables on Sundays.

ABOUT OUR CURRICULUM...

Your family is important to our church. We want to partner with you and support your role as spiritual leader to your child. The opportunity for your kids to connect with God's Word is invaluable and a cornerstone of their Christian education. For Ages 3 years old through 4th grade, we use Spark Faith Foundation (Augsburg Fortress). Spark is a rotational Workshop Model in which the kids rotate weekly to different workshops such as Cooking, Art, Games and more! Our 3 year olds through Kindergarten rotate in a self contained classroom. One of the perks of Spark is there is a great online tool for us to communicate.

Our Preteen Ministry, F.L.Y.T.E., is for 5th & 6th graders. F.L.Y.T.E. is a relaxed atmosphere, not a classroom setting. It is a place where our preteens can feel comfortable talking about God and their lives. In addition to Sunday mornings, there will be both on and off campus events for F.L.Y.T.E. throughout the year. You can find more info on these events at the pre-teen ministry table.

We also try to incorporate several service projects throughout the year. These projects may, on occasion, require outside the classroom participation. As examples, in the past, we have asked the children to collect "Coins of Compassion" for the Feed My Starving Children ministry, and to bring in food items for our Lutheran Food Bank and go to the Food Bank and stock the shelves. It is our hope that you will support and encourage your child’s enthusiasm in participating in these worthwhile ministries.

Please make sure you receive a copy of our Ministry Handbook for Parents and Youth-this handbook provides an overview of procedures and guidelines of our Ministry. Please read and discuss the handbook with your child. There are copies available at out Ministry table.

Many of our Parents also involve themselves by becoming Workshop facilitators, assistants, or substitutes. What a wonderful way to demonstrate to your child the significance of learning God's word! We invite you to visit the Children's Ministry table any Sunday to find out what opportunities are waiting for you.
We hope you’ll find encouragement in your role as a parent and a spiritual leader for your child. May these tools serve to remind you how important you are in nurturing your child’s spiritual life – and how blessed you are to be entrusted with this awesome responsibility!

God bless you!
