3rd Grade Bibles

Every third grader at Nativity receives an Adventure Bible to guide them on their faith journey. The Adventure Bible contains great contextual features such as: Life in Bible Times, People in Bible Times, Words to Treasure, Did You Know, Live It, facts, a dictionary, and colorful maps. These features bring relevance and meaning to what can at times be a challenging text!

3rd Grade Bibles are presented annually in October. Karla will teach a fun,  brief class about how to use your new Bible.

Faith Milestone

Families of Faith: “Discover Communion”

A series of classes that explore how Jesus changed the Passover meal, at the Last Supper, into the Christian Sacrament of Holy Communion. Drama, games, baking and crafts culminate in a special dinner, followed by a communion celebration on Maundy Thursday. This class meets the three Sundays before Easter; the dinner and Maundy Thursday take place the Wednesday and Thursday before Easter. For kids grades 2-5 and their families.

Additional Student Information
Ex: My family prefers outdoor classes; we plan to do a mix of online/in-person classes
$15/student, $30 maximum per family with students in preschool – Grade 6. Support your Youth Ministries. It takes a village to help raise a child. It also takes supplies, training for leaders, and special events for the year. To that end, we suggest a payment of $15 (not to exceed $30 per family). Payments can be made online OR checks can be made payable to Nativity Lutheran Church.
Permission For Pictures Nativity uses photography and videography to promote and celebrate children's and youth events and programming. Worship services and special events are Live-Streamed.
