For all Ages

High School Age– Teen discussions of relevant faith issue.

Mandarin’s  David Minardi, founder of  “Teengagements” a developer and provider of educational curriculum to school districts throughout the US brings a keen sense of the issues that confront today’s teens. He is dedicated to bringing a fresh, interactive, and witty engagement with the issues.

Middle School AgeLutheran Confirmation

Taught this year by Mr. Matt Fischer, this is a two year series of classes that give our young people a solid foundation in the Old & New Testaments, as well as a study of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. This series of classes is designed to let the student plug in at their phase of development, but generally is designed to fit somewhere between your child’s 6th to 8th grade.

Elementary School Age–  “Holy Moly”

 Taught by a variety of gifted Mandarin Disciples, this course begins with a study though-out the winter/spring of some of the major pillars of faith from the New Testament. Join us as we read the stories and do fun projects as we learn about the life and teachings of Jesus. The first half of each week’s lesson is taught during the worship service as the children are excused after the Children’s Sermon. They return to worship for Holy Communion and the second portion of their lesson begins at 11 am.

Nursery Age- (Toddler-5 years)

We provide nursery services during worship and during the education hour as well because maybe Mom needs a little time playing with the adults for a change!

Adults – New Program –“Witness of Women”

Join us for a new study using an ELCA curriculum.  We meet from 11 am 12 noon every Sunday, however each session stands alone so that the class can be started at any point in time. Please stop in and check it out!
