What is Catechism Class?
The Apostle Paul speaks of how from infancy Timothy had known the Holy Scriptures “which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3:15) As parents desire to make their children wise for salvation, Berea is here to help. Utilizing Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, our children are able have an intensive, in-depth study of the basics of the Christian Faith. Teachings covered include what the Bible teaches about the Triune God (the Apostles’ Creed), the 10 Commandments, the Sacraments (Holy Baptism and Holy Communion), the Lord’s Prayer, Confession and the Office of the Keys. Catechism Class is taught by the pastor in a three year course for our Public School children and a two year course for our Christian Day School children. At the conclusion of these classes, it is our prayer that these young people will become communicant members of Berea. Please contact our Pastor for more information.
