The purpose of Christian Education at OSLC is to help individuals and their families to know Christ more fully so that they can more fully follow Him. To this end, we offer a variety of opportunities for people to grow in their understanding of God’s Word, beginning in early childhood and continuing through adulthood.
Kids Connection is a ministry designed specifically for children (age 3 thru 6th grade). It meets at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. We provide an engaging learning experience, intentionally teaching children Bible knowledge and Lutheran theology in a safe and nurturing environment.
Vacation Bible School is a week long summer experience designed to enhance the Christian learning experience of the children who regularly attend OSLC as well as serve as an avenue of outreach into the community.
Confirmation is a two-year program for young people (most students begin in the 7th grade) that helps them to understand better who God is, what Jesus has done for them and what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible and Luther’s Small Catechism are the primary texts used. The weekly sessions incorporate the various learning styles.
The Pulse is a time and place for tweens and teens (grades 7-12) to engage in in-depth Bible study. The goal is not simply to impart information. Rather, The Pulse is specifically designed to disciple young people so that they are equipped to live out their faith in their everyday lives. It meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in Luther Loft.
Adult Education is offered on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the conference room. A wide range of topics is covered from specific books of the Bible to topical or seasonal studies. Our aim is to instill in adults a greater love for God’s Word and to help them to mature as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our current class is on the book of Hebrews. Using Howard Kramin's study guide, we're learning that God gives hope and courage in our discipleship so that we "will not grow weary and lose heart." The main point of our learning this far is that Jesus is greater than everything!
Our Library is stocked with a variety of Christian books—from devotional books to parenting help to fiction. Please feel free to browse the library at any time and borrow to your heart’s content.
