Christian Education

It is our commitment as Christians to foster lifelong faith through Christian Education. St. Armands Key Lutheran Church offers many opportunities for Christian study at all age levels.

SAKLC’s theme for this Christian Education year is Proverbs 22:6 --

 
 "Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray."
 
 

 

Sunday School 

 
Rally Day (the traditional kick off for the new year) is held on a Sunday near to the start of the public school calendar each fall. Sunday School classes are offered for students of all ages from pre-K through adult beginning at 10:10 AM on Sundays. 
If you are interested in teaching Sunday school classes, please call the church office at 941-388-1234. Teachers are provided with curriculum and materials chosen by the Educational ministries team. The team teaching approach shares the responsibility of preparing for and teaching classes.
 

Confirmation 

 
“Confirmation ministry is a pastoral and educational ministry of the church that helps the baptized through Word and Sacrament to identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in its mission.” – 1993 ELCA Confirmation Ministry Task Force Report
Confirmation classes are offered for students in middle school. Classes are held each Sunday during the Sunday School hour.
 

First Communion 

 
First Communion instruction is offered around the third or fourth grade in conversation with parents ready to bring their children to the Lord’s Table. Children learn Bible stories from both the Old and New Testament and grow in understanding of their full welcome as part of God's family. They also have the opportunity to bake the bread that will be used when they receive the Sacrament for the first time!

Thursday Adult Bible Study 

 
Beginning each September and continuing through May, the Thursday morning Adult Bible Study meets at 10:30 AM for a time of academic study, biblical learning, fellowship, prayer and discussion. Come join the conversation!
