Grades 5 and 6

Our 5th and 6th grade students have opportunities to share their experiences with their peers in a variety of ways. We explore real world problems and how people can make a difference in their small corner of the world.  We further explore our Lutheran theology basics, including Martin Luther, and why they are important in their faith journey. There are educational and fellowship opportunities available throughout the year for this age group.

Elementary Sunday School 9:30am

Students hear and experience the Word of God in a story and station-based program that explores the Old Testament and New Testament stories while following the seasons of the Christian church year. During the hour, children participate in story, crafts, service, interactive play, music, and games!

This program needs adults to serve as station team members, shepherds, and helpers. Parents with children enrolled in this session are encouraged to volunteer. Sunday School service gives an opportunity for parents to fulfill their baptismal promise to provide for the Christian education of their child as well as to grow together in faith with their child. Parents are encouraged to volunteer.

Joyful Ringers (Hand bell choir)

3rd-6th Grade

Wednesdays, 5:30-6:30pm

Our 3rd—6th grade students are invited to participate in our children’s hand bell choir. Experience making music in a fun environment where kids will learn how to read music, or if they know how to read music, how to play as part of a group. We participate in worship throughout the year, and even do a few concerts outside of church. The wonderful part of playing in a hand bell choir, is kids at different skill levels can all do it, and have a great time. Join the fun, and be a part of this exciting group, and become "Hooked on Hand Bells".

Malia Johnson leads our hand bell choir. She has been playing hand bells since she was in the 4th grade (just a few years ago), has played hand bells around the world, and directed hand bell choirs around the Pacific Northwest for many years. She also was a founding member of the Seattle Bell Ensemble, and is part owner of one of the largest hand bell sets west of the Mississippi. It is quite clear, that she loves hand bells, is "hooked on them", loves kids, and loves teaching them how to be part of the worship at Holy Spirit.
