We take seriously the instruction of the young here at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne. Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself holds children up to us as an example of unquestioning faith. And we heed His admonition to nurture that faith – in our children and, by extension, ourselves.
We’ve developed our Sunday School classes for children 3 years of age and up. The instruction is focused on teaching them about God’s love for them as described in the Holy Bible and explained by Martin Luther in his Small Catechism.
To engage young hearts and minds we employ a variety of teaching techniques. These range from verbal instruction and reading, to singing, to crafts, to lively discussions or question-and-answer sessions.
Sunday School at Redeemer runs year-round and is conducted every week. If you would like to know more about it, please contact Redeemer Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne.
