Christian Education

ONLINE IN A TIME OF ISOLATION



Contact us for more information for online meeting time and link. We'll be using "Zoom" (you can download the app to your computer or device in advance, here) - it even works well on smartphones!


An archive of previous programs we've used at Gloria Dei can be found here.

CONFIRMATION


This is a two-year program on the basics of our Christian faith, through a Lutheran lens! Students usually begin the program in grade eight.
We offer this program in tandem with St Mark's, Faith Lutheran, and Messiah churches.

We follow the Colaborate curriculum.




CHILDREN'S PROGRAM

As we gathered online, video Sunday School lessons were made available in a playlist here (each lesson is around 10 minutes long)

Some resources for downloading and using at home available here.
A Palm Sunday resource available here.
A video about Palm Sunday and Maundy Thursday, here.
A video about Good Friday and Easter, here.

While not Christian education, per se, this link will take you to some learning opportunities from the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which certainly have overlapping values with our faith!
