Two’s through Fifth Graders
Sunday school for children and youth runs from September through May. The curriculum we use for our children ages 2 through the 5th grade is SPARK from Group Augsburg Fortress. SPARK offers a fun and developmentally appropriate look at the foundational stories of our faith. There is a take home sheet each week that allows the learning to continue at home with daily devotions.

High School Sunday School Class (9th-12th Grades)
The 9th-12th grade youth enjoy open discussion on many different topics. Open exchange of ideas, concerns and joys are encouraged in this small group setting.

Learning is a life long process and we encourage all adults to engage in learning and faith talk. St. Philip offers two adult Sunday school classes for that very purpose.
Faith and Fellowship Class
Faith and Fellowship is an adult multi-generational Sunday school class that addresses multiple faith topics in an open discussion format. This class meets from September through May in Luther Hall from 9:45-10:45. Join us!!
This class uses the International Sunday School Lessons for Christian Teaching, as used by millions of Christians every Sunday throughout the world. Our specific lessons are published by the ELCA Augsburg Publishing Company. The lessons provide a study trip through the entire Bible once every three years. Each Sunday lesson is led by one of four regular teacher-facilitators and an occasional “guest celebrity” teacher. In each lesson, we read the selected scripture, do our best to understand it – with help by the teacher-facilitator, and then engage each other in lots of free discussion on what the teachings mean to us. We meet on all Sundays of the year not superseded by a special all-congregation event. There is continuity in the lessons, yet each lesson is designed to stand on its own. All are welcome at any time.
