SUNDAY SCHOOL: (3-year-olds through 6th Grade)
Classes are offered for 3-year-olds through 6th Grade. Sunday School begins with music and singing each Sunday morning in the Sanctuary at 9:45 AM. ALL Sunday School Students, Preschool through 6th Grade, meet in the Sanctuary for the Opening. The Opening includes special music (songs from Day Camp, VBS and the Hymnal), an introduction to the Theme of the Day, special guests and unexpected surprises! At 10 AM, students move to the Youth Room for a short video and then to Sunday School Classrooms for a Bible Lesson and group activities.

A Combined 7th - 8th Grade Confirmation Class meets in Room 110. Please contact Roger with any questions regarding the Confirmation Program.
HIGH SCHOOL CLASS: (Grades 9 – 12)
Through Bible Study and sharing, youth grow in their faith, learn to connect with each other in meaningful ways and explore ways to serve God and others. High School students are invited to join us in the Sanctuary at 9:45 AM for the Sunday School Opening. After the opening, our High School students will either stay with the Sunday School students (helping with activities and crafts) or will go to the Youth Room for a separate High School Class.

Everyone has a unique Spiritual Journey. All are invited to grow in faith, learn in understanding, share thoughts and ask questions. Please join us as we Journey in Faith together.
Responding to Christian Nationalism
January 8, 15 22, 5 pm
Christian Nationalism is one of the biggest current threats to our society, but it is not well-understood, even by most Christians. It seeks to merge Christian and American identities, and it distorts both the Christian faith and America’s constitutional democracy. Christian Nationalism is a framework of thinking that demands Christianity be privileged by the State and implies that, to be a good American, one must be a Christian.
The three sessions, sponsored by the FLC Christian Education Committee, will be led by Lloyd Condra (January 8), Roger Steinke (January 15), and Joe Siebert (January 22).
All are welcome!
Sunday, January 29, 3 pm
When former journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) is dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, he is at a loss as to what to do next. That changes when a young Irish woman approaches him about a story of her mother, Philomena Lee (Dame Judi Dench), who had her son taken away when she was a teenager inmate of a Catholic convent. Martin arranges a magazine assignment about her search for him that eventually leads to America. Along the way, Martin and Philomena discover as much about each other as about her son’s fate. Furthermore, both find their basic beliefs challenged." Kenneth Chisholm
