not just plain water, but it is the water included in God’s command and
combined with God’s word. In baptism, God, the Holy Trinity, receives us
into communion or fellowship with Himself. At baptism a child receives a baptismal certificate and candle along with a quilt. Baptism
presents a time for parents and the church to make a public announcement before
God that we together, will do everything we can to help a child, or adult, grow
in their faith.
An intentional faith journey for
parents. Events are planned to connect with parents relationally and to help
parents find a Christian rhythm within themselves and their home where they can

Xplore Our Savior Sunday School (XOS)
Sundays from 9:00-10:10am. Check-in and registration open at 8:40am. Registration is also on our website. Our Savior works together with families to point kids to Jesus. We offer something for two-year-Old’s and their parents through grade four. Come and join in the FUN!
2 Year Old Parenting Class
Two year old's and their parents meet every Sunday. This class allows parents and their children to make new friends and learn about God’s love. The philosophy of this class comes from Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” If children at the age of two are cognitively learning; we can certainly begin training them up in the Lord.
Two-Year-Old Faith Milestone
It is our privilege as a church to celebrate what is happening
spiritually in your home and in the life of your child. We encourage this
process of faith building by presenting a toddler Bible to the parents to give
to their child during worship. This gives the church an opportunity to pass on God’s

Children who are ages 3, 4, or in Kindergarten are grouped accordingly while in small group. They come together for two large group presentations. The content will be very Jesus centered. The children will be challenged to take their faith into everyday applications. The lessons use active learning methods utilizing multiple senses.
These four grades will be on the same Bible lesson; but will meet in small groups with their same grade level. They come together for one large group presentation, and in small groups, guides discuss the application points of the day’s lesson while applying it through hands-on application experiences.
1st Grade Milestone
Helping families continue to grow spiritually, even after the
words of Holy Baptism, we support spiritual growth by putting God’s Holy
Scripture in each child’s hand, with an age-appropriate Bible. The child is
then taught to bring their Bible on Sunday mornings to use in Xplore Our
Family Events are organized with
the intent of giving the whole family a time to come together to fellowship
with other church members and grow in their understanding of Jesus Christ,
their Savior. Join us for fun events such as the Pumpkin Patch, Nativity
Pageant, Christmas Caroling, Movie Night and Experience Camp Luther.
Intentional Transition 4th to 5th Grade
Fourth grade will move to the middle
high room towards the end of the Xplore Our Savior, Sunday school year. This
gives the kids a chance to get connected to the next grade level. This will help with the intentional retention
of kids within the church, as they make the transition from grade to grade.
