Kids Kingdom (Sunday School)
9:45 to 10:45 am (September to May)
Augustana uses the Workshop Rotation Model, a learning environment where children in grades 1 through 6 rotate to a different learning center each week to explore Bible stories and focus on a particular area, such as crafts, science, games, videos, or cooking.
Children three years old through kindergarten stay in their classrooms with the same teachers each Sunday.
Basic – Brothers and Sisters In Christ
BASIC promotes youth involvement at Augustana through social activities. Children in grades 4 to 6 connect with other young Christians, get involved in service to others, and have fun. Parents lead group activities such as horseback riding, bike rides, snow tubing, and bowling.
Augustana welcomes children in 2nd grade and older to participate in the first Communion class. Classes are held in February or March, typically about two weeks before Holy Week. We celebrate First Communion for children during a service on Maundy Thursday. Students and parents must attend one of the classes to be communed. Children learn about the Last Supper, basic Lutheran communion concepts, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion as we celebrate it today. Please choose one of the following dates to attend this class with your child. Please note: this is not a drop-off class; at least one parent must accompany his or her child. Call the church office if you have questions and to RSVP for your choice of class date.
First Communion dates: TBD
Augustana offers many camps throughout the summer for children of all ages. Brochures and registration forms for Summer of 2020 will be available February 2020.
