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!

    "Discuss This" is a weekly book discussion lead by our Ministries Coordinator, Paul Koppelmann. We are currently reading and discussing "Not-So-Nice Bible Stories: Master Criminals" by Jonathan Schkade. "Master Criminals" highlights 18 true stories of tricksters, spies, murderers, and other criminals in the Bible who committed shady sins. Don't shield your eyes from the stories of good guys gone bad in the Bible. Some of the master criminals in this book are heroes of the faith, but at times they failed to trust God. Steal away with this criminally good book and learn how Jesus gave us His own priceless righteousness!

    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.
