  • CHILDREN'S CHURCH for PK to 5th grade learners. During worship the Vicars lead students to designated classrooms, just down the hall from the sanctuary, as we begin the "Gathering Hymn" and then guide them back as we "Share the Peace."  We hope you will make this a part of your family's weekly worship rhythm!

  • CONFIRMATION for our 6th to 8th graders kick-off is Sunday, August 20 at 1pm at Emanuel's.  We continue our partnership with Spirit of Joy and will rotate, month-by-month, being here and there. Calendars were emailed and are now posted on our website. This year's Old Testament studies will certainly be exciting! See the full schedule here.

  • COMPASS COOPERATIVE for 6th to 12th graders, gathering every Sunday at Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church at 6pm, will start its year on Sunday, August 27.  Food, games, and fellowship are all on the agenda for the evening so please, help get your youth there!

  • 3RD GRADE BIBLE CLASS & PRESENTATION is offered each September. The pastor offers a brief overview of the Bible, its testaments, and its history. Each student will be presented with their own Bible, along with book tabs to mark each books' beginning, as well as a personalized name plate. During the worship service that follows, the Bibles are blessed and presented by each student's parents or guardians. RSVP to Pastor Marcus by September 8th.
