Kids In Grades 1 Through 4

We are always pleased to welcome new visitors and new friends to our growing community.

1st through 4th grade ministry is led by the caring team of Karla Reiland and Leah Reddy. Both Karla and Leah have children in the program and have a desire to see our children & families grow in their faith and relationships with each other.

What to expect

Each week we provide lessons, activities and Bible stories to help your family experience

the love of Jesus together. Access Faith at Home videos and lessons below.

We encourage you to cultivate new ways of exploring your faith together as a family. We will continue to provide virtual weekly lessons that provide context, encourage discussion and contain an element of fun! You can do these on Sunday morning or any time during the week.
  • Additionally, we will host Zoom Faith Formation events, drive-thru events, and outdoor events throughout the fall. You may even sign up to have your Faith Formation teacher come to you to do a Driveway Devotion or Porch Prayer!

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.
To register please call or email Pastor Ben Schori at 612-781-2766 ext. 1010.

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!

This year, Karla and Leah will deliver Adventure Bibles to each third grader’s home. Karla will teach a brief class about how to use your new Bible, which can be completed live via Zoom or asynchronously.

3rd Grade Bible Delivery: October 4-October 10, 2020

3rd Grade Bible Class: Sunday, October 11, 2020
