 Bible Discovery and Sprouts on Sunday Mornings!


Bible Discovery 9:30 - 10:30 AM:  For our younger participants Age 3-K we offer Augsburg's Witness curriculum which encompasses 15 core character building lessons per semester in a classroom setting.  Grades 1-5 participate in 3-week rotation style faith formation curriculum covering well known Bible lessons using Art, Cooking, Bible Skills, Music, Science, & Videos.  Grade 6 uses the new curriculum "What's in the Bible?" by Phil Vischer (creator of Veggie Tales).

CHILDREN DURING WORSHIP

 

 
CHILDREN'S MESSAGES
These are shared with the children during the Sunday morning, non-communion worship services.  We encourage all children to participate.  Through these talks the children have an active part in the worship service.

MORE CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES

CRADLE ROLL 
Baptized infant members of Our Father are enrolled in the Cradle Roll.  Parents are then provided with Christian education materials in order to assist them with their child's spiritual growth and religious training from birth to the age of three.
 
CHILDREN'S CHOIR
Our children's choir "Our Father's Kids” (Grades K-6) rehearses on Thursday afternoons starting at 4:15pm. These groups sing regularly for worship, alternating between the early and late services.  Rehearsal time is held in conjunction with the children’s handbell ringers.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
OUR FATHER CHILDREN’S LEARNING CENTER
Our Father Children’s Learning Center is an exciting ministry to pre-school children (ages 2 ½-5 years) and their parents.  Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. during the school year, the building bustles with Bible stories, songs, crafts, finger plays, prayers and kids in motion, all within a Christian context.  Our Father Children’s Learning Center is self-supporting and contributes to Our Father financially as well as physically, through the purchase of playground equipment and other needed items.  Call (303) 779-4910 and talk to our preschool director if interested.
 
ACOLYTES
Acolytes are youth in grades five and above who have the opportunity to serve their Lord and the church by leading processions, lighting and extinguishing candles, assisting at communion, and by assisting the pastor as requested during the worship service.  The acolytes at present serve at approximately one worship service per month.  There is a formal training for acolytes, and acolytes are expected to participate in yearly refresher classes.  A schedule is sent to each volunteer.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
VBS will be June 22-26, 2015. 
Vacation Bible School (VBS) for children ages three through 5th grade is offered during the summer months for one week.  
We always look forward to this special and fun-filled way of ministering to the children of the church and the community! Bible stories were taught and the children came to know God deeper through hands-on activities and craft projects. Time was set aside for music and recreation each day. Thanks to all those who joined us! Please check back in March 2015 for more details about next summer's VBS and registration will begin in April 2015.
