Sunday School / GXP / Club 56:

  • Christian education will start at home for the 2020-2021 year.  This status will be reevaluated as the year progresses.  Changes will be communicated to families via the Parish Visitor, the church website, Facebook pages, email, and mail.

  • Families will be registered via Google Form that will be shared in the same way. A letter and paper form will also be mailed to families.  Please indicate on this form your preferred communication method and send back to Church.

  • Monthly kits will be prepared and labeled for each registered family and will be available for pickup 2 weeks prior.

  • The materials will also be available to print or reference on the Sunday School page on the Cross of Christ Lutheran Church website.

  • Due to copyright laws, we will make Spark Storybook Bibles available to those families with children aged 3 - 2nd grade who do not have one.  For those families with children in 3rd -6th grade who do not have a study Bible, those will be made available.

  • Once a month, Pastor Linda will prepare a message for the children that relates to the lesson. Please watch for more information. As always, please feel free to contact the church with any questions or concerns.

Please contact the Church Office.
