Learning for All
Children and their families have the opportunity to learn about God’s love and forgiveness in a variety of settings. The pandemic has allowed us to discover a variety of ways to grow together. Check out the variety of opportunities offered.
Summer Family Ministry
Each summer Hosanna offers an educational opportunity for children/families to grow in community with one another while learning about God’s love for all. Outdoor story time, music, games and exploration are all utilized for this ministry.
Each year Hosanna’s children have an opportunity to share the story of Jesus’ birth through a special Christmas worship. A virtual Christmas was presented in 2020 and an outdoor telling of Jesus’ birth was held in 2021.
Students in 7th-8th grade are invited to participate in the Confirmation ministry each year from Sept. – May. This two year ministry has youth exploring, learning and discussing faith issues and the specifics of the Lutheran faith. Affirmation of Baptism takes place in the fall of one’s freshman year.
