2017-2018 10th Grade Confirmation Student/Mentor Class Schedule

(note: classes start shortly after Lenten worship services) 

Wednesday, February 21, 7:45pm: Orientation and Meeting #1:

            “Did Martin Luther really call the Pope the Anti-Christ?”

Wednesday, February 28, 7:45pm: Meeting #2:

“How can Lutherans believe in ‘grace alone’ if they also believe in ’Faith alone’ and ‘Scripture alone’?”

Wednesday, March 7, 7:45pm: Meeting #3:

            “Do I have to memorize the Small Catechism to be Lutheran?”

Wednesday, March 14, 7:45pm: Meeting #4:

            “What’s a synod and why are there so many different ones?”

PLEASE NOTE: In recent years we’ve begun to have a problem with absenteeism at these meetings. We can afford to have only 4 meetings when EVERYBODY is there; if we can only get 60% of the people to attend then we need to start having more meetings to accomplish the same amount of class work. PLEASE mark these dates on your calendar and make sure that BOTH you and your mentor can attend!

PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE A $5 MATERIALS CHARGE FOR SOPHOMORES THIS YEAR.

 NEW THIS YEAR: FAMILY FAITH NIGHTS!!!

On the second Wednesday night of each month we will have a ‘Family Faith Night.’ This will run from September through April, and will begin with a short worship service from 7pm until 7:35 or 7:40. After worship we will conduct a multi-generational family educational event (ALL ages), or service project (or both). This will help attending confirmation students and their families to record worship notes AND a service project.

The Confirmation Class was studying John the Baptist, and how what he wore and carried with him was a reflection of his role as a prophet of God. These photos were taken by our confirmation small groups, showing what they were carrying in their pockets at class that night. How does what YOU carry around show who you are, and what is most important in your life?
