Lutheran Church of the Incarnation (LCI) provides a wide range of Christian education opportunities for children, teens, young adults and adults. Learning together encourages us to stay centered on Christ in our lives as we grow in faith. We provide Sunday morning classes for all ages and additional bible studies at other times. Our education program incorporates faith milestones which includes bibles for 4th graders, first communion classes, confirmation and honoring our high school graduates. All are warmly invited to participate in LCI's education ministry. Visitors are always welcome.
For more information contact Lay Youth and Family Minister, Lindsey Burns.

LCI hosts a family program the first Friday of every month October through April from 5:30-6:30. This is an intentional time to celebrate holidays with families of children ages 3 to 11. We enjoy a lesson, songs, crafts and themed snacks. Children and Families focus on how our faith is present in our everyday lives even on holidays like Halloween, Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day. Please contact Lindsey Burns with questions.
First Communion class, "A Place for You", is offered for children of all ages and their parents are invited to be a part of the class. Families in consultation with Pastor Dan may decide when they feel the class would be beneficial and when they are ready to start receiving communion. Classes are generally held in the spring with First Communion celebrated sometime around Easter.
Communion at LCI is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.
Questions can be directed to the church office.
LCI offers a confirmation program, together with Davis Lutheran Church, generally for seventh and eighth graders. The program is intended to develop students' faith through learning and community to prepare for the Rite of Confirmation. Pastor Dan leads the class together with Youth Minister Lindsey Burns and volunteer small group leaders.
Classes are held Sunday afternoons at LCI and at Davis Lutheran Church from September through May. In the fall after the two-year course (generally ninth grade), participants may choose to be confirmed on Reformation Sunday in October. For more information about this program please contact Pastor Dan or visit our Youth Ministry page.
