Children in Worship
We believe it is important for children to worship with their family. Being with the community is meaningful for young and older alike. Each Sunday we have a special time during worship (Children’s Sermon) for our children to hear a story or participate in a discussion about our theme for the day. All ages are welcome to come forward to participate.
We have worship bags that invite children to be a part of the service and participate, no matter their level of understanding or ability. We also have tables and a pray-ground space in the back filled with things to keep kiddos engaged. The children are invited to sit at the table that is staffed with two nursery volunteers that have passed background checks. Or the children can take the activities back to where they are seated with their parents.
We provide Sunday school for children of all ages (September - May) following worship at 10:45am. Dedicated teachers are ready to engage kiddos through legos, story-telling, videos, crafts, and more!
Confirmation classes are available to students in middle school. It is a three year program that focuses on the Old and New Testaments, Lutheran History, and Luther's Small Catechism. Spirit of Joy collaborates on confirmation with Emanuel’s Lutheran Church in Seguin. Currently classes are held once a month. There are also opportunities for summer camp and retreats throughout the year. Upon completion, each student has the opportunity to affirm their baptism. Please contact us if you are interested in being a part of our program!
