Catechism Classes

Students receive a Luther's Small Catechism as the enter their first year of catechesis (religion classes). Over the course of two years, they will learn the Ten Commandments and their meanings, the Lord's Prayer and its meaning, the Apostles Creed and its meaning, the means of grace (Baptism and Holy Communion) and their meanings, confession and absolution, prayer, and the office of the keys. 

As part of their Confirmation stepping stone, students will receive an enamel pin with the two tablets and a cross on it to demonstrate that they have learned the Ten Commandments (two tablets) and the Lord's Prayer (cross) after their first year of catechesis. When they are confirmed and take Holy communion, they will receive an enamel pin a symbol of bread and wine to show that they have completed catechesis and have been confirmed into the church.
