Confirmation Program


First Communion

In First Communion Class, students are prepared to take Holy Communion. These classes take place during two Sunday evenings in Lent. Classes include dinner and instruction, as parents and children eat together and learn alongside one another!

These classes answer many questions that students often have about Holy Communion.


Catechism Class

Catechism Class is two years and dives into the six main teachings of the Lutheran Church. In 12 class sessions each year, we take students through Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, a wonderful handbook that organizes Bible verses by topic. The program includes field trips, a retreat, and a special ceremony on Confirmation Sunday!
