Christian Education

 CROP 2 500


Education Hour

Christian Education Hour is held at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday. Teachers, assistants, and students of all ages help to make the Christian Education Hour a success. Hearing about God and God’s love through stories, songs, and craft projects is the main goal. As we teach children about Jesus, we try to help them build relationships in our church family, the community, and the world.

For children of all ages, beginning at age 3, and adults.


For Adults

Adult Education Hour is also at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday. Bible studies as
well as discussions on other church and social related issues are held.


3-N-1 is our Youth Group for high school ages led by Jason and Kim
Boczko. Salem cooperates with St. John’s Lutheran in Somonauk and
Bethany Lutheran in Leland. They meet on the second Sunday of the month
alternating among the three churches planning service and fun activities to
help encourage the kids in their faith journeys. Kim can be reached at

First Communion
Arrangements are made every year to prepare children who are ready to
receive communion. This is arranged between the pastor and the families.

students in seventh and eighth grades participate in a two-year program to
prepare them for Affirmation of Baptism through the Rite of Confirmation


Bible Study/Book Study
This happens from time to time.

program for children is planned by members of the cooperating churches.
