Sunday School and Confirmation

We are committed to the Christian education of all of our members, from early childhood through adulthood.  Where there is a need for sound Christian teaching, we strive to meet it.  If you are interested in Sunday School for your children ages 3-10, please talk to Pastor Espinosa.  If you are interested in confirmation for your upper elementary, middle-, or high-school aged children, please ask Pastor Espinosa about our robust confirmation program, which includes instruction in Scripture and the catechism as well as preparation for the Lord's Supper.  (Contact:

Youth Group (Jr. high and High School)

First of all, we encourage our youth to stay connected with the Word of God, both by attending church and bible class, and also by going to youth events such as Crosswise (CUI) (click here) and Higher Things.  Our participation depends on the current age demographic of our congregation, which fluctuates over time.

Our youth group has done various service projects in the community, including attending luncheons with Bethesda residents and providing hygiene kits for Lutheran Social Services of Southern California.

Finally, we have occasional social events (such as games nights) when our busy schedules allow for it!
