Middle School Catechism Instruction
Middle School students (Grades 7 to 8) meet on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
The middle school confirmation instruction program at Beautiful Savior is for students in grades seventh – eighth. Students in this age group are going through a large transition as they move from the lower elementary grades, so we work to provide a learning space that is accepting and relaxing and helps them to meet new friends and gain new understanding as they grow in God’s love.
We want our young people to experience all aspects of the Christian faith from reading and understanding scripture to learning our Christian and Lutheran history and what it means to apply it in their daily lives. Our confirmation instruction prepares our middle school students to become adult members of our Christian community.
Pastor Mark Behenna and Michelle Ketepa use multi-media, interactive learning, technology and the Here We Stand curriculum to lead these discovery classes. Together our young students are encouraged and supported as they explore their faith and solidify their understanding of being Christian.
The program includes two years of study in the Bible and the Lutheran Catechism. Time together also includes explorations in worship, prayer, ministry and fellowship. A variety of fun activities are planned for the year, including service projects, outings and gatherings and confirmation camp.
