CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL AGES
A new year of Sunday School and Education Classes will begin again in September.  The Education Hour begins at 9:45 AM and ends at 10:45 AM.  You and your family are invited to grow in your faith and in your knowledge of God’s Word!  Please join us in the First Lutheran Faith Journey!


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.  

CONFIRMATION CLASS: (Grades 7 - 8)
A Combined 7th - 8th Grade Confirmation Class meets in Room 110. Confirmation will be celebrated on Reformation Sunday, October 31 for four 9th Grade Students, who are: Isabella Curcio, Jackie Fairbanks, Thomas Holmes and Beorn Skjonsby.  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. 

Movie Review
Just Mercy
Sunday, May 22, 3 pm

“A powerful and thought-provoking true-story, "Just Mercy" follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson.) One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them."
