No matter how young or old you may be,
there is a place for YOUR faith formation at Shells Lutheran Church.
Children/Youth Sunday School
From September through May the children are welcome to join faith formation classes on Sundays at 9am. Through bible readings, skits, crafts, and much more, participants are taught the basics of the Christian tradition through a Lutheran lens.
Since Children's Sunday School occurs simultaneously with Sunday Worship, participants join the congregation at the Offering to celebrate the Eucharist. On the first Sunday of the month participants will assist with leading Worship.
Adult Forum/Sunday School
From September through May the Adult Sunday School Class (all ages are welcome) meets in the Social Hall with refreshments. Topics range from bible study, current events, and Church history. The class meets at 10:45am on Sunday mornings and we go out to breakfast at a local restaurant.
The Confirmation program at Shells Church is a two year course of study in Lutheranism, the Bible, Church History, and Vocation made available for 7th and 8th graders. The class meets on Sundays at 9am - September through May.
Bible study is held on Mondays from September through May at 6:30pm and alternate locations between Shells and St. John Hoernerstown (Please check the parish newsletter for location - https://www.shellschurch.org/newsletters). Please bring your favorite translation of the bible!
Shells A.R.M.Y - Youth Group
The Youth Group (Shells A-mazing R-adiant M-ighty Y-outh) engages in fun and creative activities as well as bible lessons and share a snack.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School occurs from Sunday through Thursday for one week during the Summer. Through bible study, music, games, crafts, and snacks the children learn about the bible and a life of faith. The church building is transformed into a theme that matches the curriculum for each year.
