Growing Together

Como Park Lutheran Church is a community of learning and growth, where questions are as holy as answers are sacred.  This is a place to wonder aloud, to test established boundaries, to grow in appreciation of ancient truths and to shape new insights.  It’s a safe place to ask questions and a good place to grow.  Every learning and discussion activity is open to all.  Check us out at any of the events and venues below.

Children

Spiritual formation and growth begin in-utero as the music and rhythms of sacred music, worship and prayer are lived in family routines.  From birth through age three, children continue to be shaped by the rhythms and routines of family faith practices and worship in ways that strongly influence their later adult practices.  Como Park Lutheran is a place that shapes faith formation and spiritual growth for entire families in ways that are both age specific and intergenerational, and that tie Sunday worship to daily life.  Join us for the following and see if it’s right for you.

Using a large-group/small-group presentation-discussion format for young people and adults together, we spend one year of Wednesday evening classes on basic stories of the Bible, and one year on Catechism and Lutheranism.  Our current curriculum is called “I AM” and it explores ten key identity statements for believers through the lenses of scripture, catechism, and Lutheranism.  It asks you to wrestle with statements like: “I am God’s,” “I am loved,” I am saved,” “I am a steward, I am a child of the Resurrection,” and more.
