How can you learn about Jesus and Grow in His Grace?
Sunday School - Our Sunday School meets between Labor Day and Memorial Day from 9:10-10:20 for all children ages 4 through Grade 8. Our goal is to help parents teach their children about Jesus and what he has done for us through stories and application to our lives. On Christmas Eve, the children present a Christmas service proclaiming the birth of the Savior through word and song. Also at various times throughout the year, the children sing songs of praise in worship.
7th and 8th Grade Catechism - Pastor leads this class on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30. The students learn the basic truths of God's Word to prepare them for Confirmation. Subjects include the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Sacraments.
Sunday Morning Bible Study - This study meets between services from Labor Day through Memorial Day. It focuses on learning and discussing various subjects throughout the year from books of the Bible to topical studies. This a wonderful opportunity to grow and build on the foundation of Sunday School and Confirmation Class.
Coffee and Bible: Every Thursday, we meet at Familiar Grounds in New London for a shortened Bible study and fellowship. Join us for a cup of coffee or another beverage of your choice for this midweek Bible study opporunity.
Bible Information Class - If you desire to learn the basic truths of God's Word and wish to become a member of Grace, this is the opportunity for you. This study does not meet regularly, but is held upon request. If you are interested in learning more about God's Word please contact the pastor.
Vacation Bible School - For one week in the summer time, Vacation Bible School will be held for all children ages 3 through Grade 6 each year with a new theme. We will learn about Jesus, play games, do craft projects, and enjoy the time that we have together.
How can you serve Jesus?
Greeters and Ushers - These are ways you can help on Sunday mornings. We are always looking for more people to be greeters welcoming those who come to worship with us and hand out bulletins. Ushers light the candles, rings the bells, collect the offering, and assist in various ways as needed.
Choir - All are invited to join us in singing praise to God throughout the year. We are always looking for more voices to join us in beautifying and enhancing our worship.
KEPT Youth Group (Grades 7 through 12) - The purpose of our youth group is to gather together as fellow Christians. We try to do something as a group as much as possible joinng with other congregations in the area. We have done anything from bowling and lock-ins to bonfires. We also look for opportunites to serve our Lord in the church and also in our community as we are able. All young people are invited to join us.
Ladies of Grace - The women of Grace gather together once a month on the third Thursday at 6:00 PM. We open with Bible study and discuss the ways that we can serve our Lord in the coming weeks. The Ladies Aid serves in various ways such as serving potluck dinners, visiting the homebound, and providing flowers for the altar. All women are invited to join us as we seek to serve our Lord in all that we do.
