Destination Dig
June 21st - 25th Ages 3 - 6 years

We will be "headed" to present-day Israel where discovery awaits at Destination Dig. Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real - life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way they'll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:14, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search Him with all our hearts. 
Sessions will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. We hope you join us!

Sunday School

Sunday School at Joy Lutheran doesn't stop on Sundays! It is the time where you can be sure your family is growing spiritually every week and using the tools they learned on Sunday to guide them through their everyday lives. With the help of a new curriculum (252 basics curriculum), we are able to better engage kids from all ages. Singing, watching, moving, learning, drawing, communicating, thinking and praying; are just some of the ways that kids at Joy Lutheran Sunday School are learning how Jesus is truly intertwined in all we do!

We are hosting online Sunday School for the time being. There is a lot of fun in store for you, so check it out each week here:
