Grow In Faith

“I can read the same Bible passage at different times in my life, but each time it speaks to me in a unique way that helps me for that specific moment.” -RELC Adult Forum attendee

Catechism and Confirmation
Catechism and Confirmation

Using the Bible and Luther’s Small Catechism as its foundation, the Catechism program at RELC will guide students actively exploring their faith. A combined class of middle schoolers meets twice a month throughout the school year. Confirmation (for 9th graders) takes place on Reformation Sunday in October.

Youth are encouraged (and required) to take notes on sermons – here is a guide to assist worshipnotesplain

We do not have a designated age that it must and should occur. All it takes is understanding the elements involved.

Parents and youth meet with Pastor Dave for a few lessons (A Place for You) and have a hands on experience of making bread.
