Children & Youth
We offer a Cradle Roll to welcome new parents and babies through age three.
Parents can receive meals, childcare, and any additional assistance needed upon welcoming a new addition to your family. The Splash newsletter is sent out every other month. We also recognize your child’s baptism with a gift bag. Upon completion of the program we will give your child an age appropriate bible.
Our Cradle Roll Contact is Valerie Willis.

Catechism is a 3-year program at Hosanna. 6th and 7th graders attend classes twice a month on Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. Our Pastor and adult leaders teach Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, The Old and New Testaments and the basics of the christian faith. The 8th grade year is an internship program where students work with our members and experience serving in the different ministries of Hosanna.
All three grades are required to attend Sunday school, participate in two retreats during the school year, and work on service projects. The fee for catechism each year is $75, which covers all materials and the retreats.
Our Catechism contact is Pastor Bret Rizzo.
