Children's & Family ministry

Thank you to everyone who attended and volunteered at our 2022 Vacation Bible School!  It was an incredible week of sharing God's love with many children!  We can't wait until our next VBS on July 31-Aug. 4, 2023!


Sunday School

 Children age 3 through second grade receive their own copy of "My First Hands on Bible".  Children age 4 and in Kindergarten will be in a classroom setting that uses the "Hands On Bible Curriculum".  Children 3rd grade through 6th grade all receive their own copy of the "Hands on Bible".  Children in 1st through 6th grade follow a rotation model using curriculum created at Faith Lutheran.  The rotation model has children learning the same Bible story (sometimes different parts of the story or through a different perspective) for 3 weeks in three different classrooms through games, art, crafts, video and online learning tools.  


If you would more information regarding our Sunday School program, contact Shannon Wolf (Sunday School Director) at sundayschool@faithpenfield.org

You can register for our Sunday School Program by clicking here. 


We encourage you to come as a family, worship, and attend education (there are youth and adult classes, too!). 

Let us know if there is anything we can do for you or your family. We look forward to seeing you!


Groups & Activities

Sunday School is offered for children age 4 through 6th grade from 9:45-10:40 during the school year.  You can register your child for our Sunday School class by clicking here.

Kid's Time

Following the Children's Message on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, children (whose families so desire) attend a 10-15 minute lesson around one of the Bible readings of the day (usually) the Gospel lesson.  Children then return to the sanctuary during the offering.


Fun Night!

4th-6th grade students gather twice a year to play games, learn a Bible lesson, and have fun with their friends!  


Service Opportunities

Throughout the year, there are opportunities for children to serve others in need and to raise money for those in need.


 Easter Egg Hunt

Families and children are invited to a fun Easter egg hunt scheduled between our two Easter worship services.  There are fun treats for children of all ages!


Trunk or Treat

Children up to 6th grade are invited to trick-or-treat in our church parking lot in late October.  There are also fun activities, games, and special surprises for kids and their friends!  Event is rain or shine!  In the event of inclement weather, we will set up in doors.  We hope to see you there!


Gingerbread House Decorating

Children create beautiful and yummy gingerbread houses during this annual family event every winter!


Puppet Ministry

Don't be surprised if a funny puppet appears at a Children's Ministry event or during a children's message!  Youth and adults lead this engaging ministry for children.


First Communion Class

In late winter, 6th graders meet with Pastor Ben and Pastor Peter for a five-week Holy Communion prep class.  The class concludes with the 6th graders receiving Communion on Maundy Thursday.
