“...teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” -Matthew 28:20
The learning of God’s Word is a life-long activity. It begins at home, of course, as mothers and fathers read the stories of the Bible with their children, pray with them, and discuss everyday problems with reference to the Word of God. In order to assist the parents in this their God-given duty, Mount Hope Lutheran Church provides weekly classes in the Catechism (Ten Commandments, Apostle’s Creed, Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Confession and Absolution, Lord’s Supper) starting in fifth and sixth grade. Students learn to confess the faith clearly according to God’s Word and in the beautiful and timeless summaries of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.
Catechism class has as its goal Confirmation, where the student confesses the faith before the congregation and is welcomed to receive the Lord’s body and blood in Holy Communion. Please check out the calendar for dates and times for junior Confirmation classes.
Adult Confirmation Classes
For those who come to the faith, or to the Lutheran Church, later in life, we offer Adult Confirmation Class. Please talk to Pastor Preus if you are interested in learning more about our Church or in becoming a member!
