Both congregations host a variety of educational opportunities throughout the year, including Sunday School, Intergenerational Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Confirmation Classes, and Adult Education.

St. Paul’s and St. John’s host a joint bi-weekly confirmation class during the school year. Confirmation is for youth 7 and 8 grade and meets the first and third Wednesday each month at 5:40-7:10 pm at St. John’s.

Vacation Bible School

St. John’s Lutheran Church hosts a 1-day Vacation Bible School each summer that is based on the bible and the gospel of the living Christ. Children attend from different religions throughout the community to learn about God’s love through Bible stories, song, games and fellowship.

Each year the kids do one or two different service projects to support the needs of the local community.  Previously the kids have donated food, toiletries, and other needed items to the Bellevue Community Cupboard, tied blankets for the Maria House Theresa Shelter in Dubuque and made birthday cake kits for both organizations.
