Classes are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:45am from September through June for all children ages pre-K through 5th grade. Children gather for a children's message at the beginning of our praise service, then go to their Sunday School classes. Various activities are planned throughout the year for our children and youth to provide them an opportunity to serve others and enjoy fellowship.
Confirmation at LCOS takes place during the 7th and 8th grades. Classes meet on Sunday afternoon at 1pm. (September-May).
During their first year the Confirmands learn to recognize the unity of the Biblical story. As they come to understand the relationship between the Old and New Testaments, they will discover the universal message of God’s plan for salvation that underlies them both.
In their second year, Confirmands intentionally explore the application of their faith to their personal lives as they seek to understand God’s plan for living a Christian life. They reflect on questions such as:
~How does being a Christian affect me? My career choice? My relationships? My personal ethics? My everyday life?
~How do I believe in God and continue to strengthen my relationship with Him while living in a world where faith is constantly questioned?
~What does it mean to be baptized? What is the value of participating in Holy Communion?
~How is Christianity similar yet different from other religions?
