The mission of the Learning Committee is to help our congregation to fulfill God’s calling for us to teach and learn his Word. All members of the committee and those involved in the teaching are called to make a commitment to personal growth in faith.

Our goals include the following:
  • To support growth in developing adult education, VBS (Vacation Bible school), CEC (Christian Education Classes), and confirmation classes
  • To evaluate the current programs and identify needs.
  • To have better communication with the church council, the congregation, the parents, and the community.
  • To continue supporting successful programs such as Rally Day, Epiphany programs, special events plays, Golden Years visits, gifts to shut-ins, Family Night, and Service Projects.
  • To send youth from our church to the triennial ELCA Youth Gathering.
  • To have more people seek out opportunities to be involved in the learning activities of the church.
