Looking for ways to connect to a Vancouver Lutheran Church? Below are the ministries we offer organized by age group. We have children ministries, youth ministries, and adult ministries. We also provide ESL training and ministries friendly to people who are in the process of learning English — right … so all of us 🙂
Bring your little ones to Sunday School. It happens each Sunday after the worship service (except during summers). It is a great atmosphere where they will learn about Jesus and make new friends. It is for children ages 1-12 years old.
We provide two programs for our youth aged 11-14: a catechism class that explains the basics of the faith; and once finished that, a Teen Bible Study. Both of these happen after our Sunday worship service (except during summers).
We’ve got many opportunities for adults to connect with other believers through Bible-studies scheduled throughout the week. We have small groups, Sunday School Bible studies, and much more.
Do you want a safe, nurturing environment for your little ones to learn about Jesus and interact with other little ones? Then come and check out our Sunday School for ages 1-12 years old.
Sunday School starts after Sunday worship service (except during summers), and lasts for 45 minutes.
Dress code is casual. Play clothes and footwear are fine.
Parents can either stay in the Sunday School room to learn with their children, or head over to the adult Bible study to grab a cup of coffee and join the adult conversation, knowing their children are in safe, qualified hands just down the hall.
Christian education is not necessary. Each Sunday School lesson is designed to introduce young learners to the Bible and its teachings through simple stories, songs, games, and crafts.
Each lesson is presented in simple English, so we welcome children who are learning English as a second language (ESL).
It is not necessary to attend the worship service. If you would like to attend our main Sunday worship service at 1:00pm on Sundays, though, your children are absolutely welcome to join! We are a very child-friendly congregation, and welcome all ages. Each service includes a brief children’s message and our church facility is equipped with a quiet play room in the back of the sanctuary so parents continue to participate in the service while children play with the toys provided.
Youth Catechism Class
Do you want your teenager to learn the fundamentals of our Christian faith? Then have them join our Catechism Class. This class is designed for young people in grades 6-8 (ages 11-14), and is taught by Pastor Geoff and covers a broad range of topics like Baptism, relationships, and the Ten Commandments. At the conclusion of these Catechism Classes, students will have the scriptural information needed to make a public profession of faith. Your teen can then decide if he/she would like to be confirmed and take Communion with our congregation.
Times and locations are coordinated and scheduled with Pastor Geoff.
Teen Bible Study
Our Teen Bible Study is a drop-in class perfect for ages 14-18 year old. Classes are after worship and last about 45 minutes.
This drop-in class has a casual discussion format. All reading materials are provided. This class is a great way for teens to look in depth into the Bible about issues that they face in every day real life. Topics include dating, social media, friendships, stress, and popularity. An understanding of the Bible is helpful, but not required. This class is ideal for teens who have just completed the Catechism program.
We offer a variety of opportunities for everyone over the age of 18 years old to connect with other Christians through Bible studies conveniently scheduled after worship on Sunday and throughout the week.
Adult Bible Study
Join us every Sunday for our Adult Bible Study, immediately following our 1pm worship service, taught by Pastor Geoff.
Our seasonal studies cover a broad range of topics, from biblical teachings like “faith,” from books of the Bible like “Matthew,” to select topics like the Reformation.
God and Me Class
If you are curious about who Jesus is, or want more information about what the Bible says and what the Church teaches, then join one of our popular God and Me classes.
These classes are for newcomers and inquirers, and focus on the core questions of Christianity. All questions are welcome and expected. And these classes are ESL-friendly.
For times and when you can join a new session, contact Pastor Geoff for more information.
