LOC offers preschool through elementary religious education for children. It is held on Saturday evenings at 5:00 concurrently with our weekly Mass. Children rejoin Mass in order to celebrate the Eucharist with the entire community.
Grouth Youp is the name of our middle and high school youth group. This group meets throughout the year exploring prayer, scripture, and social justice.
Baptisms for infants and young children traditionally take place during our Saturday evening Mass. Parents prepare for this by meeting with the Pastor ahead of time for conversation. For older children and adults, preparation with the Pastor happens with the individual seeking Baptism.
First Communion and First Reconciliation
First Communion and First Reconciliation preparation classes are also led by the Pastor in small groups or with individual children and/or their families.
The Confirmation preparation program is led by the Pastor. Fundamentals of the faith and prayer are explored. Confirmation is generally celebrated at the Easter Vigil Mass. Adults and youth prepare separately for this sacrament.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is offered during the summer as a joint program with Bethlehem Lutheran.
