The purpose of this program is to provide instruction in the very basics of Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective. Over the course of two years we study what has been recognized as the “basics” of Christian thinking over the past 2,000 years, including a year learning the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion, and a year devoted to studying scripture.
At the end of the two years of study, each student will participate in Confirmation, affirming what God has done for her or him in Holy Baptism and making a public confession of faith. Obviously, the learning of faith continues long past confirmation. Hopefully, what is learned in these classes will strengthen the faith of the students as they grow through the rest of their lives.
