Youth Programs

Sunday School

We have Sunday School during the school year for kids from age potty-trained to grade 5. They join us for worship at 10 and stay through the pastor’s Children of God message, then are dismissed to classroom for their lesson, art, etc. Oftentimes the lessons are incorporated into service projects. In the past the kids have collected items for the Ronald McDonald House, toys for needy children at Christmas, etc.

Kid’s WOW

Kid’s WOW (Worship on Wednesday) meets every Wednesday of the month during the school year from 5:30-7:00 for games, art, lessons, and a light meal.

Registration link for WOW will be available in August 2024.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is held the first week of August in the evening and includes a light meal. Children are invited to worship the Sunday following to tell us what they have learned, share songs, and expand any mission projects.

2024 Vacation Bible School will be “MONUMENTAL” amounts of fun and fellowship, August 6, 7, and 8 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Registration is open, using this link:  2024 Vacation Bible School  Register each child individually so that appropriate age/grade and t-shirt size is gathered.

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation classes are held and led by the pastor when a group reaches the age of 6th grade or older.  Classes run from October through April. Youth are invited to join the church through confirmation on that year’s Pentecost Sunday.

Our church offers scholarships to either denomination’s church camps. We are privileged to have affiliation with both the Christian Conference Center near Newton, Iowa and Camp Bear Creek near Wyoming, Iowa. Both camps offer opportunities for adults as well as youth.
