Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday School is taught by Pastor Chris Repp and others in the Hoffmeister Room.
PreK-12 Sunday School
Sunday School runs from September through May. Children from Pre-K to High School are welcome to attend. Pre-K through 3rd grade children start with singing in the Polka Dot room then go to their classrooms for class. Grade 4 through high school children go directly to their rooms for class. Sunday School runs from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
Our Sunday School mission is to teach our children about the wondrous, gracious God that we have! We strive to teach our children about God’s love in an exciting, relaxed atmosphere. The children show God’s love by learning the word of God, singing praises to him, and making arts and crafts that show the lessons of God.
We have Sunday School each Sunday from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. For Pre-K through the 3rd grade, we start our Sunday School with singing in the Polka Dot room. Grade 4 through high school class time starts in their classrooms. We would love to have the opportunity to help teach your child of God’s love!
Confirmation at Grace Lutheran Church is a three-year program designed to build group identity through a three-legged stool design of: (1) learning, (2) service, and (3) fellowship. The material that we use is called colaborate. Confirmation classes meet on 16 Wednesdays from September through May from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. The program is open to students Grades 6 – 8.
The Circle is scheduled to meet on the third Tuesday evenings of the month, weather permitting. Meetings are held in the narthex beginning with coffee and fellowship at 7 p.m. A brief business meeting at 7:30 p.m. precedes the Bible study, using materials from the monthly publication entitled “Gather for Faith and Action,” published by WELCA. Offerings we collect support selected GLC projects, local helping agencies, and the WELCA organization at the national level.
Anyone interested in subscribing to the “Gather” publication should go to GatherMagazine.org or call 844-409-0576. The cost of a subscription is $15 for ten issues per year.

Women of the ELCA (WELCA)
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
We strive to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
Youth at Grace
We seek to incorporate our youth fully into the life of the congregation and are moving toward a multigenerational approach to congregational life. But we still have youth-focused events and programing. Currently we are teaming up with our neighbors at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church for a combined Sunday-evening program.
We participate in Illinois Lutheran youth retreats in at Carlinville and Rend lake, send youth to Leadership Lab at Augustana College, and also to the triennial ELCA National Youth Gathering. We also take at least one youth trip each summer. Children from sixth grade through high school are welcome to participate in our youth activities.
