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.
If you have any questions regarding Children’s Christian Education at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, please contact Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org

Traveling down Route 56, 5th and 6th graders have opportunities in this stretch of their faith journey for fun and games, creative expression, and fellowship with their peer group.Participants and parents help mold this vehicle into a comfortable, positive environment where Christian values are gathered and nurtured as they worship, learn, discuss, and serve the community.
We welcome you to any and all of our events during the year as we share God’s love in all we do.

hand bell choirs
Joyful Ringers 3rd-5th Grade: Wednesdays 5:30 -6:30 pm
Rejoicing Ringers 6th Grade and Older: Mondays 6:00 - 7:00 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, 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 choirs. 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.
Middle School Events
Throughout the year, we offer quarterly activities for our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade youth and their friends to join and have a great time. Cost is about $40 for each event.
