Grades 4, 5, and 6

Our 4th, 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.

Connect 4/5 Elementary Sunday School 9:30am

Students hear and experience the Word of God in a story, video, and discussion-based program that explores the Old Testament and New Testament. During the hour, children participate in story, crafts, service, interactive discussion, music, games, and fellowship!

Each year we require a new registration form for your child. This helps our staff and volunteers have the most current information for your child and your updated contact information. Please register your children online. Connect 4/5 Sunday School leaders are volunteers and have their children in the program. For the program to run smoothly, we need one parent volunteer each week. Our volunteer sign-up is online through Sign-up Genius. Please consider signing up for one spot every 8-10 weeks.

If you have any questions regarding Children's Christian Education at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, please contact Becky Cole at children@hslckirkland.org.

hand bell choirs

Joyful Ringers 3rd-5th Grade • Wednesdays 5:30 - 6:30 pm

Rejoicing Ringers 6th Grade and Older • Sundays 2:30 - 3:30 pm

All children 3rd grade and older 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. 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 Joyful Ringers choir. She has been playing hand bells since she was in the 4th grade, has played hand bells around the world, and directed hand bell choirs throughout the Pacific Northwest. Malia is "hooked on hand bells", loves kids, and loves teaching them how to be part of the worship at Holy Spirit. 

John Sparkman leads our Rejoicing Ringers choir. He began playing for church services in junior high and has long had a sense of calling to music ministry. John finds great joy and fulfillment in facilitating the music ministry at Holy Spirit and is looking forward to making music with this group of middle school and high school students.
