Get engaged with Family and Youth

Sunday School

Youth at American Lutheran Church begin the wonderful journey through our Sunday School program at the age of three years old and continue until eighth grade.
In Sunday School, children are introduced through age appropriate programs to the stories of God and God’s love.
Sunday School is held mid-September through May on Sunday mornings at 10:00am.
For more information on ALC Sunday School, please contact the church office at (605) 432-5566 or the Christian Education Coordinator, Amy Bass.


7th-8th Grade Confirmation
The ALC Confirmation program helps fulfill our Mission Statement by connecting youth to Christ, our community, and each other through a number of events. Students meet on Wednesdays afterschool to study scripture, Luther’s Small Catechism, and explore ways to connect with Christ through prayer.
Assisting with worship, attending Sunday School and church, along with taking sermon notes are part of the Confirmation program.

Senior High Youth Group

The Senior High Youth Group is for 9th-12th graders and meets once a month.
The hope is that the Senior High Youth will grow in a deeper and richer connection with Christ, each other, and the community.

Family/Grown-Up's Movie Night

Each month on an alternate Sunday during the school year, we have a movie night for grown-up's and one for families that is kid friendly in our church theater.  See the Welcome Center for a sign-up sheet and our next event.
