Kids love it at Faith Lutheran because they’re highly loved and valued by our staff and volunteers. The Nursery is well-equipped and led by loving caregivers. Preschoolers and elementary-age kids have a blast learning about Jesus in a kid-friendly environment. And students take part in different activities and do all kinds of fun stuff.

We have fun. We learn about Jesus. We get to know each other. We always keep in mind that the church is here to help parents, not replace them. Your kids are going to love it at Faith Lutheran Church, and Faith Lutheran Church is going to love your kids.
FLC Kids Ministry exists to gather kids into age-appropriate community and equip parents so that kids can come to know Jesus and serve others the way God shaped them to bring glory to God. Another huge priority for us is fun. We pour ourselves into the task of creating experiences and teaching lessons your child will talk about on the ride home.
Our first and highest priority is every child’s safety.
– Every volunteer submits to a thorough background check.
– We train and orient volunteers about safety and security protocols.
What We Offer
At Faith Lutheran Church, our goal is to work alongside parents to help instruct your children in matters of faith. Our curriculum has interactive lessons that include Bible verses, fun songs, games, and crafts. Our volunteer Sunday School teachers strive to show children how special they are, that God loves them, and that He has a special plan for their lives.

What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the Affirmation of Baptism, which is a much more descriptive name for what we’re doing. Basically, it’s an opportunity for people to affirm for themselves the promises that their parents, sponsors, and congregation made for them at their baptism. At baptism, parents make this promise: “…to live with them among God’s faithful people, bring them to the word of God and the Holy Supper, teach them the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments, place in their hands the Holy Scriptures, and nurture them in faith and prayer, so that your children may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace.”…in a nutshell, we are asking youth to affirm the promises made at baptism, the same promises families made in having their child baptized. Although we mark this as a one-time event, Affirmation of Baptism is something we should do on a regular basis, Luther would argue every day.
Through the Confirmation Ministry, youth will explore some themes throughout their 2 years. Everything from the Bible and creed to the tough questions of faith. Exploration of faith is our focus, which leads to knowledge and understanding. Our Confirmation teachings will focus on involvement and understanding through experiences and activities. There is also an opportunity for all of our youth to engage in a Mentor Ministry during the season of Lent.
In the summer of the 8th-grade year, youth will participate in the Confirmation Worship (Affirmation of Baptism Worship).
You can find all of this information in our confirmation orientation. While we do have a list of “things to do” during the Confirmation Ministry year, we would like all families to know we will work with you to give your youth the best possible experience in faith formation we can. (If there are any concerns regarding this, please contact Pastor Ebassa.)
While confirmation is a time-honored rite of passage in our Lutheran tradition, we tend to treat confirmation like the finish line when it is really more like the starting gate.
If you are interested in learning more about our Confirmation Ministry, please email Pastor Ebassa. He can also be reached via the church office at 303-688-3476.
Sunday Mornings @ Faith Lutheran 10:30 AM
Our Sunday School Class for Middle School students operates on weeks when our Confirmation Class is not meeting. This class focuses on working through a book of the Bible slowly and helping students understand the meaning of the texts they are reading. Our Sunday school classes are lighthearted and often involve a fair amount of laughter.
Dates in Fall and Spring
We have Fall and Spring retreats for our middle school students. These retreats are great opportunities for students to solidify relationships and have intensive discussions about our confirmation materials from Sunday mornings. The tradition is to spend a night at YMCA of the Rockies either in Estes Park or Winter Park, both are great facilities with lots of activities. These weekends go quick and energy levels are high, but every year we see some amazing growth in students from a short weekend away.
Our High School Ministry is growing along with our students. We focus on providing opportunities for students to learn in the context of community and work to provide an array of programming that will connect with any student. We have built strong traditions that our students are proud of, but each year the group continues to create new traditions and memories.
One of our common expressions is that students come to church to learn how to live. As high school students begin transitioning into adulthood, they are often filled with questions, and we provide space for conversations and development. How can I live a life of purpose? What can God help me learn about myself? What does it mean to follow Jesus today?
We welcome, accept, and celebrate students wherever they are in their faith journey. In the Gospels, Jesus does not immediately tell people what they need to believe, but simply invites them to ‘follow him’, knowing that they will learn along the way. For our students, we invite them to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by going and serving others. We hope and pray that just as Jesus’ disciples, they will learn by following.
The early church in Acts models the simple joy of ‘being’ together in community. We focus on providing three pillars to create community; eating together, praying together, and celebrating together. Community takes time and investment, but we find that these elements create a strong foundation. We hope you will join us for an event or meal sometime.
Sunday Nights @ Faith Lutheran 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
High School can be crazy! It’s nice to be able to step away from our busy schedules and come
