First Communion

 At the Falun/Salemsborg Lutheran Parish, we leave the ages of the children about to take first communion up to the parents. The recommended age is 4th grade and older, but we also realize that children’s ability to understand the meaning of communion can vary. The first communion class is about 2 hours long, and we talk about the meaning of the Eucharist, and what a sacrament is. On the day of their first communion, the families of the young person are invited to come up and commune with them. This usually occurs the Sunday following the class. The practice of our parish and the ELCA is that ALL are welcome at the table of Christ. 

VBS

Our 2023 VBS adventure took place at North Park in Lindsborg, Kansas.

Falun, Salemsborg, Messiah and Bethany Churches came together for a four day event.

 

Mystery Trip Travelogue

July 2023

Day 1: Pine Ridge Reservation with our dear friends the Cheif Eagles!  We did service work.

Day 2: The Black Hills of South Dakota.  We kayaked and learned how to trust the spirit

Day 3: Horseback riding, a chuch wagon steak dinner and empowering the unity of community. 

Day 4: Saved by Grace! Mount Rushmore and time to relax.

Day 5: Enjoyed a hoop dance by Dallas and Becky Chief Eagle's daughter at the Crazy Horse Monument. The theme for this day was Truth. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

The Chief Eagles taught us a saying Mitakuye Oyasin, which means All my relatives. The fact that we are all related, all of us as children of God. This trip was full of Holy Spirit moments. I can’t wait to share how the Spirit lead this amazing group of young people.
