    Written by Martin Luther in 1529, the Small Catechism provides a brief, clear summary of God’s Word on the essentials of the Christian faith. In question-and-answer format, it explores the Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine and includes daily prayers, a table of duties for Christians in their various callings, and a guide for Christians as they prepare to receive Holy Communion. An explanation designed to help readers understand and apply Luther’s Small Catechism has accompanied editions of the catechism since the early days of Lutheranism. The 2017 edition offers an updated and expanded explanation, tackling issues prevalent in our culture today. Come learn and explore with us!

    Confirmation is an opportunity for students in 7th Grade (or older, if they have not been confirmed) to make a personal confession of Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. In preparation for their confirmation, students are taught the truths and habits of the Christian faith. On Confirmation Sunday, students will take responsibility for their faith and the church, committing to Christ what is already His through Baptism: their lives.
