    • Have you ever wondered about the significance of our bodies?
    • Why were we created as either male or female?
    • Does what we do with or to our bodies matter?
    • What about the concept of gender and identity – does God have anything to say about that?

Join us as we explore the Holy Scriptures to find some answers!

Classes & Staff

We normally offer Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 a.m., beginning with two-year-olds and their parents. Classes for older children are divided by grade and teach God’s word and application to life lessons, using the Bible as a guide. We praise the Lord through song and Bible study.

During our time apart, please make use of the Sunday School At-Home resources above.

After we are able to resume having classes together in person we will once again encourage visitors to our Sunday School between morning services. Stop by the church office outside the sanctuary or the coffee café in the Grand Hall outside the gym at 9:15 a.m. The Sunday School Superintendent will help you and your child join a class.

Registration Information

The first time you bring your child to Sunday School, please introduce yourself to the teacher so we can get to know you and involve you in what your child is learning. Each fall we’ll ask you to update the form you filled out the first year to update your contact information and share any special information you think we should know about your child. We ask for email addresses so we can notify you of special children’s events.

For more information, please call the church office at (812) 332-1668.

Spirit Camp

Spirit Camp 2021

We give thanks for all of our Spirit Camp kids and families and look forward to our 2021 program. While we don’t yet know exactly what format we will be able to offer this summer, the planning is underway and we will post updates as we have them.

Although we couldn’t be together as usual in 2020, we’re so glad so many of you joined us, and we pray that our Virtual Spirit Camp was still a blessing to you! 2020’s videos may be viewed on our YouTube channel.

Confirmation

For grades 7-8. Learn interactively from our pastors what the Lutheran Church teaches and discuss current Christian faith issues. These two years prepare students to confirm their baptismal vows plus participate in and receive the benefits of Holy Communion.

This year’s four confirmands are all 7th graders so, for the very first time, we do not have any students being confirmed this spring. We pray for them as they as they complete this first year of instruction. And we give thanks to God for the work that He has already done and continues to do in each of their lives.

FLY (Faith Lutheran Youth)

For grades 7-12. Activities are planned each week to strengthen faith and build fellowship among students from different schools. Join our Facebook group to follow our events.

We invite you to scroll through facebook, instagram, and the official LCMS Youth Gathering website for photos, video clips and other recaps of the 2019 NYG, which took place in Minneapolis from July 11-15.

Please keep our group in your prayers as we prepare to spend time in God’s Word, worship, service, and fellowship together with 21,000 other youth and adults from across the country and world at the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering in Houston.

Scholarship Opportunities
