Dear 7th & 8th Grade Confirmation Class Parents,
We had our first class last night with the students. We began with a brief gathering with the parents as well. The fall semester snuck up quickly on us, but we are ready to go at it! For those parents who weren’t able to attend last night, information from the meeting will be in your church mailboxes. We ask you please to sign the attendance covenant and return that in the near future.
We won’t have class on Labor Day, but will resume on Monday, Sept. 9th at 6:10pm. Students are dismissed about 8:00.
Our assignment for Sept. 9th is:
- Memorize 2 Peter 1:21
- Memorize these books of the Old Testament: Genesis through Ruth (with correct spelling)
- Review class notes. (For those unable to attend and take notes last night, reading pages 26-32 in the catechism will help. If you don’t have a new catechism [©2017], we’ll have to try to get you up to speed when we meet next. We have catechisms and Bibles on hand for you.)
Students in our Lutheran elementary school are studying the same topics, just during the school week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. All students, after completing our course of instruction at the end of their 8th grade year, will be confirmed together. Confirmation Day for our 8th graders is scheduled for the last Sunday in April (April 26th, 2020).
Sunday School will begin on Sunday, Sept. 8th, 9:00am in the Martin Luther Room. Mr. Brian Haack and Mr. Tony Surian will be our upper grade teachers this year.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to working together, under the Spirit’s guidance, to grow in God’s Word, faith, and Christian living!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Tom Behnke
