Church School and Confirmation update-revised!
Faith Formation and Education at LCC is going to look a little different this year with the pandemic of COVID-19. Please know that we at LCC are doing everything thing we can to plan and keep activities, worship, education, and faith formation as normal as possible. Church school will start on Sunday, October 4th and
Wednesday, October 7th. Parents will be notified about the Confirmation orientation but it will likely be in October as we adjust to changes to the school year. Confirmation students who will be confirmed this fall will meet at 8pm the first Wednesday, after orientation. Church school for the first few weeks will be led by Deacon Janie, then our hope is to have volunteers help lead the lesson. We will be using an all age kids curriculum. We will not be using classrooms and will host church school as one big group in the fellowship hall. The lesson itself will be around 20 minutes, then a craft that families can do at the table or take home with them. Currently, there will be no singing during church school. Currently, we do not require people to wear masks in the building, but it is highly encouraged. If we see that kids can keep a mask on for the time we are together then we can start to introduce singing back into church school. Church school will still start at 9am Sundays in the fellowship hall , and 7pm on Wednesdays in the multipurpose room. Every Thursday families will receive an email with the zoom link, lesson, and craft for the following week so that if they choose to stay home that week they can participate. Please know that this is only because of the pandemic that we will host church school like this, and plan to go back to the way we used to do church school when the pandemic is over. Confirmation will be hosted on Wednesdays. 7 pm– 7:15pm confirmation students will meet in their small groups like normal. Then at 7:15pm students will meet in the fellowship hall for large group lessons so that youth can safely physically distance themselves. Families will have the option to zoom in if they do not feel comfortable coming to the building. If schools were to close and education is solely done online, church school, and confirmation will be hosted
solely online here at LCC as well. We will re-evaluate in December to decide how to run church school and confirmation the second half of the year.
