Children's Faith Formation

Faith Formation at Mt. Carmel for Children

All children ages 2 through 6th grade are invited to join us for Sunday school this year. All children are invited, member or not. Join us any Sunday! Visitors welcome!

In keeping with the ELCA’s emphasis on knowing our Book of Faith, the Bible, Mt. Carmel’s Sunday School focuses on the big stories of the Bible. Mt. Carmel is following the Narrative Lectionary. The Narrative Lectionary usually focuses on just one Bible passage - around which the rest of the worship service is arranged.

During Sunday School families gather for a retelling of the story, as well as music time. Then the kids split into age appropriate groups and explore the story in various ways together with a parent teacher. The kids and parents learn of God’s love, Jesus’ teachings, and about their church and the rhythms of the liturgical year.

This Lent, we're learning about:

  • Jesus' baptism
  • The temptation of Jesus
  • The parable of the lost sheep
  • The parable of the prodigal son
  • Join us March 13 to listen to storyteller Mike Mann
