Midweek School is for our children to learn the basics of the Christian faith, spend time in the Word, dig deeper with questions and answers (and discussion), culminating in the Rite of Confirmation.
We also create times of fellowship, fun, and worship. We end each week with a prayer and worship while lead in learning hymnody by Cantor Zieroth. Our 5th-6th graders serve our congregation’s Advent and Lenten meals. Our 7th-8th graders cleanup along Highway 51 twice a year. And we like to take a day in the fall and winter for an activity or travel event.
All catechumens also serve our church as acolytes for the Divine Service each week as well as other services. They are also asked to complete 1 Sermon Notes page per month and give to Pastor Amen, 7th-8th graders are additionally asked to complete 2 special services per year (Advent, Christmas, Lent, etc.).
Primary resources include Luther’s Small Catechism and Lutheranism 101 for Kids.
