Catechism

When we were baptized, our parents and sponsors promised to help us to come to service, to learn the Lord's Prayer, the Aposltes' Creed, the Ten Commandments and more.  We at St. Paull take time to help those parents and sponsors with those promises.  We hold catechism classes in both 7th and 8th grades to teach the Bible and Luther's Small Catechism.

In7th Grade we look at God's big story, the Bible, and how we are part of that story.  We look at the scriptures and how they came to be.  We also look at the 10 Commandments and the Lord's Prayer, both of which are found in the Bible.

In 8th Grade we look at our identity as Lutheran Christians.  We look ot our understanding of the Sacraments, Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.  We look at how we live sacramentally and how we follow Jesus.  We also look at the Creeds of the church and Lutheran History.

In both grades we use movies to help teach and conversations are essential.  We want to invite all 7th and 8th graders to join us in learning about our faith. 

For the 2013-2014 school year we will meet with both classes on Sunday evenings.  The 7th grade will meet one week and the 8th grade the next.  Classes will be held at 5:00pm and will begin in September.
