About Growing in Christ
Growing in Christ is a Sunday School program for ages 2 to adult that takes students through the Bible in three years. It follows a same-age classroom model so students learn and grow in faith alongside their peers. Together, they explore the Bible, draw connections to the Small Catechism, and learn the traditions of the Lutheran Church.
