It all begins at Holy Baptism, and Augustana supports families of the newly baptized. Families of newly baptized infants and toddlers are enrolled in our Splash program, with monthly mailings that nurture the whole family. Because ministry begins with baptism, the Augustana Foundation also gives an investment gift in the Mission Loan Fund in the child's name.
Lenten Communion Class
During Lent, Augustana offers a class for children in grades 3-5 and their families in preparation for the children's First Communion. The class celebrates their First Communion on Maundy Thursday. For more information, contact Cary Mathis, Children's and Family Minister (email@example.com).
Complimentary nursery care is available for children during all Sunday morning activities. Starting at 8 a.m., care is provided during worship, during education hour for those too young for Sunday School, and also during 10:30 a.m. worship. The nursery is also staffed for congregational meetings and special worship events such as Thanksgiving Eve and Lenten services.
Sunday School for kids in Kindergarten through senior high is offered Sundays, 9:15 a.m. beginning Sunday, September 9, 2012.
Safe, interesting learning
Children Kindergarten through 5th grade start with an opening in Christ Chapel at 9:10 a.m. every week. Here they celebrate birthdays, meet teachers, and sing lively songs of faith.
Early elementary classes, preschool through 2nd grade, work through a rotation of art, movie, and story areas. There they create art (tactile/kinetic), see videos (visual), hear scripture (auditory) lessons on a rotation using the same Bible story for optimal learning benefit. After three weeks, another piece of scripture is introduced and the rotation restarts. Augustana uses Augsburg Fortress curriculum, the publishing house of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which offers solid, Lutheran theological principles.
Third through 5th grades use lectionary- based curriculum studying the same scripture readings in the classroom that are read and preached in worship that day. Once again, this provides for optimal learning of scripture.
See the youth page for information on Sunday morning classes for middle school and senior high youth.
What is JASS? (pronounced jazz)
JASS includes choral groups for kids in Kindergarten through senior high, bell choirs for kids in grades 4 through 12, a recorders class for kids in grades 3 through 5 as preparation for bell choir, senior high youth group, and lunch for all JASS participants and their families. See schedule below.
Senior high youth group meets weekly, 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. in the Youth Room for highs and lows, games, devotions, and fun.
In addition to children’s and youth ministries, we have several JASS parent/adult groups meeting in the early afternoon, 12:15–2:45 p.m. with opportunities to expand! Groups formulated at this time include a walking group, a church maintenance group, a Christmas costume repair group, and the Broncos Club which watches games and cheers on the Broncos together as a church family!
