We celebrate Christmas (a bit early) with the pageant Christmas Around the World. All children join to sing and play the story of Jesus’ birth. On December 15, all children will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall to get ready. Bring the whole family and enjoy waffles baked by the Luther League until the doors open at 10 a.m. The youth will make sure to have plenty of waffles for the cast after the show. Dress rehearsal will be on December 14 at 10 a.m.
Children and youth join to make music in worship on Reformation Sunday and during Advent and Christmas. Music director Rick Erickson and Music Associate Mary Joy Silmaro lead rehearsals that include music, movement and reading. Snacks and special activities such as pumpkin carving and Christmas pageant make these weekends fun events for everyone. We invite all children and youth old enough for singing and group activities to sign up. Registration can be done via link in Thursday evening emails, online, and in an email to be sent to all families. With questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have you wondered how to dance? How to cook? How to study the bible? What messages are in the Marvel Comics Movies or the New Yorker? How to taste beer & wine? How do I sew a button?

Each night from Monday, July 29 – Friday, August 2 we will come together for fun and learning with sessions taught by members and friends of Christ the King Lutheran Church.
