Children, Youth and Family Ministry

Faith Formation is a key part of who we are and what we do. Jesus calls us to be disciples and to walk in the ways of God’s love and justice for the world. Therefore, learning in a variety of ways–ways that deepen our minds but also our hearts is a key part of Faith Formation for all ages at OSLC.


Preschoolers and Elementary students are in a fun stage of life where exploring stories of faith and actions of faith go hand in hand. Learn more

Central Place

Children are welcomed and encourage in all aspects of Christian life-fellowship, worship, learning, and serving. Each week there is a children’s word time with a Pastor or other caring adult . Children are invited and encouraged to participate in worship leadership and through our Together in Faith ministry and music ministries children do participate regularly.

Baptismal Preparation

We begin our journey with God in baptism! We know that faith formation begins and is primarily taught in the home. We offer a variety of ways to prepare for baptism and we offer support, encouragement, and equipping resources for parents and sponsors. We provide fellowship and learning opportunities for parents and young families through the year. Learn More About Baptism

Milestone Ministry

We continue to equip and encourage faith development in the home through the elementary and confirmation years of a child’s life. We offer parent-child learning opportunities at each grade level Preschool-Confirmation (8th grade).

Communion Instruction

We believe that all are welcome to the table, even the little ones! When to start taking communion is primarily a parent decision for their child. We suggest that by 3rd grade a child is receiving communion. We offer communion instruction as a class in the 3rd grade and we are willing to meet with children and parents together as well. Children are welcome to commune before they have instruction.
