Children and Youth Ministry
Webpage Updated May 6, 2019
We are excited to share God's Word and the teaching of Jesus with you and your family. Sunday School is offered to students ages 3-12th grade. 3 year olds need to be potty trained or accompanied by a parent.
During Sunday School, there are two activites in which parents can participate: The 9:30am Worship Service and Adult Sunday School. Adult Sunday School meets in Classroom 9 and follows the same schedule as the children's programs.
If you have any questions regarding Sunday School, or want to become more involved as a teacher/substitute or helper, please feel free to speak to Karolin in person, drop a note in the resource office, or contact Karolin via e-mail at or phone at 215-256-8738.
There is a Parents' Bulletin Board located in the hall near the front exit door of the lower level. Please refer to this board for any upcoming news and announcements. CLC Policies, Evacuation Map, Sunday School Calendar, and Kid's Club/Tween Scene posters will be located there.
for Sunday School Students
First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion instruction is offered to all 5th graders. Instruction is led by the 5th grade Sunday School teachers during the Sunday School Hour for 10 weeks leading into Holy Week. Students receive their First Holy Communion on Holy Thursday at the evening worship service.
Christ Lutheran Church's Confirmation program is a two year program for grades 8 and 9. Classes meet twice a month, on the first and third Sunday of each month. The curriculum is designed to provide the youth with catechetical instruction, faith-centered conversations, and fellowship to aid them in reaffirming the promises made at their Baptism. Youth who complete the two-year instruction are confirmed on Pentecost Sunday of each year.
Kid’s Club is a social group for 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders that meets 4 times per year on Sunday afternoons. Events are mostly on-site and emphasize fellowship.
Tween Scene is a social group for students in 5th and 6th grade. The group focuses on relationship building through fellowship, service, and fun and meets 4 times per year. Events include sleepovers, game nights, bowling events etc, and usually include an element of service to the community and/or the church.
Youth Group at CLC provides opportunities for students in 7th-12th grade that emphasize three vital components: spiritual growth, volunteerism/service and relationship building. Our events include: MLK Day of Service, Service/Work Days, Mission Trips, Intergenerational Dinner, Youth Winter Retreat, Youth Sunday, ELCA National Youth Gathering, 30 Hour Famine, and fellowship opportunities (sleepovers, trampoline parks, bowling, game nights, etc).
