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 recently had children in the program (now in the next level of faith formation classes) 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.

  • Nativity is committed to supporting you in your faith journey. We are so excited to be back in the classroom this fall! We will be wearing masks indoors per CDC guidelines, and we will also spend time outdoors. Because children under the age of 12 are not yet able to receive a vaccination for COVID-19, we are continuing to offer online options for families. Each week, you can enjoy a virtual lesson that provides context, encourages discussion, and contains an element of fun!
  • FALL 2021 – We will offer Faith Formation activities on Sundays during the 9am and 10:30am services in the classroom and/or outdoors.
  • Please be sure to REGISTER below to stay up to date on Nativity’s fall Faith Formation offerings. Filling out the form is quick and painless!

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!

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