Catechism (pro. cat-E-kism) means teaching/instruction. Lutherans believe the words of the Small Catechism. Another name for Confirmation is Catechism. Catechism is the Christian instruction of our faith tradition.
The Small Catechism teaches us about the Sacraments (sacred elements commanded by Christ for us to do. In Sacraments we receive God's gifts of grace and sanctification). We are told there are 2 sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion. Some Lutherans name Confession and Forgiveness a Sacrament and in the Small Catechism it is considered part of the Sacrament of Baptism and Holy Communion.
This page is for those interested in learning about the Sacraments and how their children and/or themselves can enroll in catechism classes.
We are currently offering:
~Holy Communion instruction (commonly called First Communion)
