Youth Catechesis (Confirmation) – Class begins in the fall and typically follows the school year. Youth attend for two years, one year focusing primarily upon the Small Catechism and the other upon major Biblical and theological aspects of the Church.
Adult Catechesis (Confirmation) – Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm in Luther Hall. Class begins each Fall or upon interest. This class is intended for all those new to the Christianity, who wish to become members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, or simply those who want a refresher course in the basics of the Christian faith. Catechesis is focused on learning and strengthening the faith of the catechumen the 6 chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism, including: The 10 Commandments, The Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Confession, Communion.
Confirmation is a custom linking the catechumen (a Greek word referring to one who is receiving Christian instruction in preparation for Baptism and/or Communion to become a member in the Church) to their Baptism, celebrating the reception of the Lord's Word among them, and welcoming them to the Lord's Supper. The reception of catechumens to the Lord's Table assumes that ongoing catechesis is the way of life for the faithful Christian.
