Confirmation Class

Wednesdays, 6:15-7:15pm in the Church Basement (September through June)

Confirmation Class is offered for students in 7th and 8th grade and taught by Pastor Paul Couch. Confirmation Class is intended to help young people mature in the faith they were baptized into, deepening it and making it personal. When this class gathers, they study Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism together. Pastor Paul did not have the opportunity to experience a class like this when he was young. He enjoys very much being able to teach and encourage these students toward faith in Christ.
