Learning at Central
Central offers a variety of classes, workshops, guest speakers, and seminars that help us become the hands and feet of Jesus by loving God and each other and by nurturing faithful living. Take a look at what we have coming up this fall!
SUNDAYS during the “Education Hour” from 9:45 – 10:45 (between services)
Nursery (pre-k – kindergarten)
Our nursery is open from 7:45 a.m. – 10:00 a.m & 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. during the school year. Bring your toddlers and young ones to enjoy safe time with our fully-trained nursery staff.
Godly Play (kindergarten – second grade)
Godly Play, is a curriculum of spiritual practice which explores the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. Godly Play values process, discovery, community, and relationships. It also allows practitioners to make relevant and personal theological meaning. Children use the phrase, “I wonder…” to explore and personalize the messages in the Bible!
Sunday School (third – fifth grade)
Confirmation (sixth – eighth grade)
During the School year Middle Schoolers head upstairs to the Confirmation Room, to build their relationships up with each other and God as they learn about what it means to live in a Body of Christ. They do team building exercises, group initiative challenges, and some didactic and kinetic learning as they prepare themselves for a public profession of faith called an Affirmation of Baptism. All are welcome to learn and be part of our group.
High School (ninth – twelveth grade)
During the school year High Schoolers head over to the Luther House, to get some much needed time away from their hectic lives. They get to spend time reconnecting with their peers, to engage and learn about meaningful relationships, understanding their faith in a rapidly moving world, and to be in a safe and judgment-free space as they start to identify their place and call in God’s world. Oh did we mention lots of foosball and ping-pong? So come join us!
