GVLC's Children's Ministry is committed to leading families into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Each of our programs is designed with each individual child in mind. From our nursery to grade 6, our goal is to provide age-appropriate learning opportunities through various channels, including drama, music, arts and crafts, reading books and the Bible, games, and discussion. Our goal is to equip families of all shapes and sizes with the tools necessary to nurture and develop a Christian home.

Golden Valley Lutheran Church is a congregation that welcomes all families and children during our worship time. Children are invited and encouraged to attend the worship; however, a staffed Nursery is available for children infant-kindergarten who may need more activity. Our worship services can be heard and seen from the Nursery.

Nursery care is provided during both worship services and during education hour on Sunday morning and for special worship services throughout the year. Nursery care is also available evenings during the year when adult or parenting classes are offered.

Nursery care is provided in a warm, loving environment for our infants, toddlers, and preschools while in the nursery.

Sunday School
We believe Christian education is important for children of all ages in our church community. One of our goals at GVLC is to effectively and creatively teach the Bible to children and families.

Sunday School meets weekly (Sept.-May) from 9:40-10:30 for children age 3-grade 5.

For students in K-grade 5 we offer the opportunity for praise and worship (singing, prayer, collecting their offering) large group lesson presentation using drama, storytelling, video, and music, and small groups discussions. Small groups focus on building relationships with one another and with their leaders, digging deeper into the scripture lesson for the day, helping kids apply what they have learned, and teaching memory work.

Students grades K-grade 5 are divided by grade level and have at least on teacher and helper in each grade.

Our preschool children will be in self contained classrooms with consistent, loving staff. Their lessons will also be presented in a creative manner using a variety of puppets, drama, echo pantomimes, storytelling, and others. Their lessons and activities will be specifically geared for 3-4 year olds and will follow the same lessons as grades K-5.

Families in Ministry Together
Serving others opens our hearts as well as the hearts of the people we are serving. Families with children age 3 through grade 5 will have the opportunity to participate in a monthly service project. This will be a chance for families to do something for others and build relationships with other families from GVLC. Watch the weekly bulletin and the monthly newsletter for details each month.

Parent Education
Golden Valley Lutheran Church believes that parents are the first and most important teachers of the faith in their children's lives. To help parents succeed in this role, we provide a variety of parent education classes throughout the year.
