Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…

Studying God’s Word is something we get excited about Living Word. The more we know, the more we seem to realize we don’t know. There’s always more to learn about who God is and what God is doing.

Wisdom is a fountain of life…

At Living Word, we have weekly Bible study for adults called “The Well.” The Well is a small group ministry, devoted to growing deeper in our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Fellowship is a critical component of this weekly study. We always begin with food and end with deeper conversation and prayer.

Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them…

On Sundays after worship during the school year, we have children’s Sunday school. Faith formation begins first in the home with parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles—whoever is around children to teach them the stories of the faith. But the church is a special community that fosters further, deeper growth for children. Parents who want to add further to their children’s already growing quest to know more about God can bring them to Sunday school at Living Word.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will become wiser still…

Throughout the history of the church, Christians have prepared for the rite of Confirmation with a period of catechetical instruction that builds on the basic teachings of baptism. In Confirmation, we affirm our faith in the promise that God made to us in baptism, the promise sealed upon us with the Holy Spirit. We are not making promises to God, but we are making promises to the community we call the church and, perhaps more importantly, to ourselves. These promises serve as our public profession of intent. In light of the promises of baptism, we are called by the Holy Spirit to make our own promises to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.

At Living Word, young people are invited and encouraged to participate in a 2-year program that culminates with the rite of Confirmation. After this time, the confirmands are considered adult voting member of our Living Word family and can serve in various capacities and functions within the congregation.
