Family Faith Sunday School lessons

Family Faith lessons are held the first Sunday of each month in a hybrid form. Join in-person or via Zoom while a teacher presents a Bible story, a lesson, and a craft or activity that you can do together as a family. On the other weeks of the month, we’ll share at-home lessons and activities that families can do together. If you’d like to be added to the list to receive these resources and reminders about upcoming teacher-led lessons, please email Desirae or Jen.

Thanks to everyone who helped in making our first-ever Christmas Drama video.  Watch it here.

(Please note the video is set to ‘unlisted’ so anyone with the link can watch, however, it will not show in the public library of Concordia Church’s YouTube page).

Today’s lesson was live (via in-person and Zoom).
