Catechism and Bible Classes
for Kids and Youth
Wednesdays at 6:30 PM - September through May
Christian education is vital in this age when
the faith is being challenged everywhere.

We invite students from preschool through
8th grades to become firmly grounded
in their faith through study of the Bible
and Luther's Small Catechism.

Preschool through 5th grade
Young children get acquainted with the central elements of faith through Scripture and hymns. 
6th Grade
Students study major events, people, and concepts in the Bible, learning how the Old and New Testaments together present Jesus Christ as God With Us and as the promised Messiah. They memorize the names of the books of the Bible, key Bible verses, prayers, and elements of the catechism. In addition, students begin learning how to listen to sermons for Christ-centered content. 
7th and 8th Grade
Students focus intently on the six chief parts of the catechism as preparation for both Confirmation and lifelong faith. They memorize the catechism, with Luther's explanations, and learn how the doctrines of Law and Gospel pervade the Bible, how Scripture shapes and enriches liturgy, and how good sermons focus on Christ and his work on our behalf.

Classes are held September through May,
with examination and confirmation of 8th-grade students
usually occurring in May.
