As our children obtain the age of 12 they are enrolled in a two year catechetical program based on the Dr. Martin Luther's Small Catechism. This instruction teaches the six chief parts of the Christian religion: The Ten Commandments; the Lord's Prayer; the Apostles' Creed; Holy Baptism; Confession; and the Lord's Supper.
Further agumenting their instruction, the youth enrolled in Catechism are also introduced to the Lutheran Confessions and the history of the Reformation.
After completing this two year program the children are confirmed into membership of Grace Lutheran Church; for those who have not been brought into communion fellowship prior to confirmation, they are now invited to receive the Lord's Supper at the chancel rail, and are therefore received into full communion fellowship with the congregation.
