This year, we begin using an exciting new Confirmation curriculum called, “CoLABorate.” Each lesson confronts students with a real question about Bible, the church, or Lutheran doctrine, then equips students to make thoughtful decisions about how they might answer it. It is based on the idea that our job as teachers of the faith during these years is to help students think critically about and engage in meaningful ways with the Bible and their faith, rather than to give them all the answers. The 2017-2018 year is our Bible Year, so we will complete the Old testament and New Testament units. 2018-2019 will be Catechism Year, so we will complete the Lutheran History & Catechism and Lutheran Living units. Each week, Pastor Laura or Pastor Matt will teach the lesson, and then the adult mentors will lead small group activities and games that reinforce the lesson.
Here’s a look at our September schedule:
September 6 — Canon
September 13 — The Hebrew Bible
September 20 — Genesis
September 27 — Exodus
