Although those sunny summer days aren’t gone just yet, the school year is in sight and it’s all about the kids at Windsor Heights Lutheran Church.
For the 2013-2014 school year, Windsor Heights Lutheran will be offering its Confirmation Ministry for seventh and eighth graders on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. As a new addition to the class curriculum, confirmation students will be using a handful of videos from YouTube to create their conversations about what is important in faith. On the church’s website, you can find the first video that will be leading the discussion, entitled “Who Wrote the Bible, God or Humans?” The course will continue throughout the school year. The video can be found at www.YouTube.com by typing in the title.
Windsor Heights Lutheran also has many activities on the horizon for the older youth who attend. C.H.A.O.S, also known as Christians Hanging Around On Sundays, will resume its weekly meetings as the school year gets underway. Youth in ninth through 12th grade are invited every Sunday night from 6 – 8 p.m. to “come hang around” with old friends, as well as new.
Many of the church’s adolescents not only participate in the youth group, but also practice their musical talents in the church choir. Each Wednesday night will begin at 5:10 p.m. with worship in the sanctuary, followed by a community meal at 5:30. The children’s classes, Celebration Choir for children in second through sixth grade, Windsor Bells, seventh and eighth grade confirmation, Cherub Choir for children ages 4 through first grade, Alleluia Choir for junior high, senior high and adult singers, and Book Club will all begin their programs at 6 p.m. Everyone is invited to join and “come together for worship, food, education and music,” or AKALOO as the church calls it. “It’s all about discipleship, or learning to follow Jesus,” as the description explains.
Music Ministry is a core value of the church’s teachings, because it gives a strong emphasis on the life of the Windsor Heights Lutheran congregation.
