SUNDAYS

SUNDAY SCHOOL: Pre K – 6th grade, 9:30 a.m. weekly during the school year

Sunday School meets weekly during the school year for ages 3 through 6th grade, between services at 9:30 a.m.

MIDDLE SCHOOL FELLOWSHIP: 7th & 8th grade, 9:45 a.m.

Middle School Fellowship meets weekly during the school year, from 9:45 to 10:20 a.m. in the Friendship Room.  We spend this fellowship time working together on service projects for our congregation and community.  Come hang out with us on Sunday mornings!

OASIS: 7th & 8th grade, 5:30 p.m. once a month during the school year

Much like an oasis is a refuge and retreat in a desert, I want our Oasis time to be rejuvenating and refreshing. The kids can “catch their breath” before stepping into their busy week. We do this by cooking a meal together, playing games, and doing fun activities but, mostly, just by being together.

WEDNESDAYS

HOSANNA CHOIR (K-6th grade)

3:20 p.m. – Hosanna Choir meets weekly September-March

Hosanna choir is our singing and bell ringing choir for students in grades K-6 and older youth who would like to be music mentors. Join us on Wednesdays from 3:20-4:00 p.m. to sing and ring our joyful praises! If you like snacks, singing, and playing instruments, we need you (and your friends)! If you have any questions about being a part of Hosanna choir, contact Sara  (sara.harbacheck@gmail.com). 

WONDERKID WEDNESDAY (K-6th grade)

3:20 p.m. – Wonderkid Wednesday kids meet once a month during the school year

Wonderkid Wednesday is an after school program for all students in K-6th grades that meets one Wednesday a month from 3:20-5:15! We have snacks, play games and do fun activities! Please contact Kirsten if your student plans to attend (kirsten@gilbertlutheran.org).

7:20 p.m. – Confirmation class meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays during the school year

Our confirmation ministry is designed to help the parent(s) as they share with their child what is means to be a baptized child of God and so that they might become disciples for Christ. Our confirmation ministry begins in 7th grade where students delve deeper in the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s prayer and the sacraments.

YOUTH GROUP (9th-12th grade)

7:30 p.m. – Youth Group meets weekly during the school year

Youth group will always be a safe place to learn, grow, question, wrestle with personal faith, invite friends, and so much more.  ALL 9th – 12th grade students, regardless of where they are in their faith journey, are welcome here!
