Augustana’s Sunday school program has dedicated teachers and helpers, exciting classrooms, and solid curriculum. Our mission is to provide quality Christian education in a safe, caring environment. We utilize safe practices in all our classrooms, which include training, background checks, and the two-by-two model of two teachers per class. The Sunday school children and youth will have the opportunity to learn, play, grow in their faith, and be themselves, in a safe environment. Fresh, high-energy, exceptional learning is central to what makes Augustana’s Christian education program top notch!

- Children 3 years through 5th grade join their teachers at opening in Christ Chapel at 9:15 a.m. every week. As they listen to a reading of the day’s scripture and sing lively songs of faith, they learn the rhythm of the worship services. As a group, baptismal birthdays are celebrated, and kids move on to their classrooms with a strong sense of fellowship and fun.
- Elementary classes, preschool through 5th grade, use curriculum that is based on the lectionary readings of the day. Teachers move through the lessons often supplementing with games and creative auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile twists. Augustana uses Augsburg Fortress curriculum, the publishing house of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which offers solid, Lutheran theological principles.
