Faith Formation for ALL
Christus Victor is a church where the Holy Spirit is moving!
“Faith Formation for ALL” is a time to gather all ages together for learning, time for small group discussion, and time to invite new people into relationships with Christ and each other. Whether you are a first-time worshiper or a long-time member, there will be opportunities for intentional spiritual growth for the whole congregation. Each Sunday morning from 9:45 AM to 10:45 AM there will be a rotating schedule.
Faith Formation For All & GLOW on one form (multiple kids in the same family can register all on one form)
Faith Formation for All launches this fall on Sunday, September 15th!
This year our Scripture focus will be the same Scripture we hear in worship each Sunday as a way to tie the text to our daily lives for all ages. Typically, the first Sunday of the month will be when all ages gather to learn and experience something fun for the whole hour – for example, last year the whole congregation shared in getting ready for Christmas through the Advent Festival. For the month of September, we will be gathering for fifteen minutes in the Fellowship Hall for our opening and then break out into small groups for different age groups.
Faith Formation for All for September 15th and September 22nd
9:45 Gather in Fellowship Hall
10:00 to 10:45 Small groups
This includes children, junior high, senior high and adults.
September 29th will be Fellowship Sunday where people are encouraged to share in hospitality and fellowship between services.
Coming Soon, Sunday, October 6th is Bible Sunday for All Ages. Faith Formation for All wants to celebrate the gift we share in God’s Word with all ages.
Attention parents of preschool and third graders – there will be a special class in between worship services on Sunday, September 29th with Pastor Kent for parents and children.

We have a specially designated area in our sanctuary for kids 0-3 called the prayground. This area has quiet play items, a coloring table, and books for little ones. This area is designed to give parents an option to closely supervise their children in a kid-friendly environment during the worship service.
We are doing VBS with WAPO counselors this year! VBS, also known as Daycamp, will be June 10-14. Use this link to register and find out more. https://christusvictor.org/daycamp-2018/

4th Grade Advent Wreaths
5th Grade 1st Communion
Each year the pastors get together with 5th graders and families to teach them about communion. In these classes families learn more about the Lutheran tradition of communion and paint communion cups. 5th graders traditionally receive their first communion at the Maundy Thursday service.
