Confirmation Class of 2016
Confirmation classes for Grades 7th-8th are held on Sundays 8:45-9:45 am, Sanctuary Balcony. Here at Welcome Lutheran we are dedicated to educating our junior high youth in such a way that they are firmly grounded in the Lutheran tradition and committed to life long learning and service of Christ.
Rally Day and Blessing of the Backpacks
To kick off the new Sunday School year, Rally Day is held each year on the Sunday before the school year begins, at the church during the Sunday School hour starting at 8:45am. This is a great time for adults and children of all ages to get involved in Sunday School. You will be able to learn about the various adult bible study classes, and the kids will be introduced to their teachers and classrooms. Children should bring their school backpacks to be blessed during the 10:00am worship service.
Vacation Bible School is conducted each summer in connection with the Industry United Methodist Church. It takes on many different themes and is well attended by all. This partnership allows us to share our lives in Christ and strengthen our bonds with our neighbors up the road. The entire community is welcome and encouraged to share this learning experience with us!
In 2016, VBS will be held here at Welcome Lutheran Church on June 20 - 24 from 8:30am - 11:30am. The theme is Go Fish: Backstage with the Bible. This program is designed to teach children about the importance of God's Word while clearly presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As children learn directly from Scripture, we pray that they will be eternally impacted by God's truth and the Gospel.
