It is of utmost importance to invest in the youth of the synod, to encourage them in the role they play in the building up of the Church of God. As a result, the FELSISA has several organisations that nurture the children, the teenagers and the youth.
The Children’s Organisation has the function to provide for the children of the FELSISA a children's or Sunday School service, through which they will become familiar with and love and praise their Lord and Saviour in whose consecrated body they were united by baptism.
Accordingly, the task of the Children’s Organisation shall be to assist the children to unite with the one Christian apostolic truth of the Word of God, to which Jesus Christ, the Lord of the church, has added the baptismal command: “and teaching them everything I have commanded you.” (Matth. 28:20).

The duties thus include the provision of instructional material of a superior educational quality, which conforms to the doctrine and confessions of the Lutheran Church, the training and assistance of co-workers and the presenting of a preparative period for the children who have not yet been confirmed.
At the end of every year, the Children’s Organisation arranges a camp for all the 9 to 12-year-old children. It is hosted by different congregations and it offers the children the opportunity to connect with other Christians, sing praise together, hear Bible stories, learn to discuss biblical themes and have fun.
